Headmasters styles hair at Central St Martins White Show for The Fashion Awards

central st martin's headmastersShout out to the Headmasters team, who (in association with L’Oreal Professionnel) styled a phenomenal 180 models at the Central St Martins White Show, to open The Fashion Awards 2019. This is the first time Central St Martins was invited to open the star-studded event which took place at the Royal Albert Hall.  Celebrities from Rhianna to Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Naomi Campbell to Tom Cruise supported the event, which recognises creativity and innovation in fashion.

Show Concept

The Central St Martins White Show was created to highlight voices of change, voices of protest and voices of our generation. As a society we are reaching tipping points both socially and environmentally. The number of protests and the scale of support of these movements, such as Extinction Rebellion and The Global Climate Strike, is ever growing. From this the team began to consider the power of one voice, and the need to speak up to make an impact. 

The power of a voice was symbolised by the links to Opera in The White show, as a medium which glorifies it. The ability to fill a room with one voice is testament to an individual’s strength and, like collective nature of a protest, shows our potential when we join our voices together. Similar to a protest, the White Show featured a plethora of individuality that came together as united force with a collective message: championing new design and sustainability through the choice of fabrics.

Nicole Iroh, Headmasters Creative Ambassador and hair lead for the show explained: “We were asked to create theatrical and flamboyant looks in keeping with the operatic theme but to keep it cool and a little spontaneous. Lots of volume, so back combing was key and with a wide range of diverse models it was important to adapt the looks to reflect the model’s hair type and length.

Look 1 – Fluffy volume, the look wasn’t too structured and instead more windswept with pieces pulled out and hair pinned to one side.

Look 2 – Damp look with some pieces over the eyes and down the face, like the models had emerged from water.  Hair was soft with no parting and slicked to the body.

Look 3 – Strong centre parting with waves or crimped in areas using a hair iron to give a slept in feel, adapted to work with different hair types.

Incredible work team!
