Lauren Great Lengths

Oh wow, Great Lengths has been hanging out with the fashion pack again but this time across the pond for New York Fashion Week. The Great Lengths UK and Ireland Education team joined hair mastermind Beppe D’elia backstage at two shows; Pamella Rolland and Custo Barcelona.

It’s showtime

Louise Jenkins, Education and Creative Manager for Great Lengths UK & Ireland and Educator Kirby Blythe were joined by two more members of the education team, Edwina Hayes and Nicky Marcar. For the Pamella Rolland show, the team created elegant and stylish looks that oozed femininity, matched perfectly with the beautiful range of evening gowns. Creating the ultimate evening look. Kirby Blythe comments: “All the models for this show had a deep section parting on the left and a soft tonged wave, we used the Great Lengths wooden brushes to brush through the hair creating a silky and shiny sheen. We applied Great Lengths hair pieces which have been bespokely made for fashion week, pinned back the sides and set in place with hairspray. Once the girls were in the line up before the show was about to begin, with a wide tooth comb we combed through the wave to ensure it looked glossy, natural and runway ready!”

For the Custo Barcelona show, the team assisted in creating bespoke looks that worked well with the new designs they were showcasing.
