Love Shack Fancy Hair NYFW SS24 - 2023

Photos: Helen Oppenheim. Collage

The hair at the Love Shack Fancy New York Fashion Week Show was by Jon Reyman for Aveda.  It was ethereal, romantic, superfeminine, and whimsical, as were the fashions.

There were three hair looks – natural, ponytail, or braided.  As with the fabulous fashions, there were plenty of beautiful bows, of all sizes, from big squashy ones with embroidery, (see photos to the right) to small bows scattered here and there, some entwined in the braided hair, others bow tied at the ends, ribbons dangling, some just capturing long hair at the back.  Hats off to Jon Reyman and his team.

The faces (see bottom left) by Amy Conway for Bobbi Brown were “pretty, ethereal, with fresh skin, a child-like blush on the apple of the cheek,  a soft glow on the eye.”

Dusty Pink Wig @ Tara Babylon NYFW – 2022

Dusty pink wigs were by Jaylin Seng for Cutler/Redken at the Tara Babylon New York Fashion Week Presentation for Spring Summer 2023.  Each wig took 8 hours to
cut and style said the hairdresser.  Hats or hearts were added by the British-Iraqui designer and performance artist, who made quite a statement with her fashion art for her RTW gender-fluid brand, unlike any other.  The label focused on eco-conscious hand-made techniques like weave, print, tufting and crochet for the fashions and accessories, all put together with a lot of fun.
