I just had to share the incredible hair (hey, that rhymes!) over at the Thakoon runway show. Dubbed “high society nomad”, models strutted the runway with heavy buns twisted with brightly colored woven yarn.
THE HAIR: “This is amazing,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul as he surveyed the look Gilbert [Odile Gilbert for Kérastase] created using a deconstructed hat made of colored yarn intricately woven into the hair. After the duo posed arm-in-arm for a photo, Gilbert turned back around to attend to model Kate Fogarty, whose long hair she was entwining with pieces of a black-and-white hat Panichgul and his team picked up in Nairobi. Each model flaunted a unique pattern that complemented her garment—vibrant threads of yellow, orange, cobalt, red, and green.
Gilbert smoothed hair back with Kérastase Double Force Hairspray and added shine at the end with the brand’s Volumactive Spray. Two stylists were assigned to each model in order to manage essentially knitting the fabric through the hair to construct an über-modern chignon.
