Because hair and makeup SHOULD be fun
Thu, 25 September 2008 10:41AM
And even though we’re over here at the shows, eating Panini and sipping on Chianti and riding Vespas, we NEVER forget that the absolute bottom line of playing with hair and makeup is that yes, it does serve to make us look good and feel great, but ultimately, it serves to allow us to be creative, and playful and experiential. And I must say, the spring/summer 2009 collections have not been exploding with playfulness and craziness. It’s been quite conservative indeed. And then Moschino stumbled in, all wild quiffs and silly sunglasses. And we sighed a collective sigh of relief.
I mean look at this!I love the foxy jewel toned dress but I REALLY love and the mental, oversized quiff and rockstar eye makeup. It’s fun. Makes me want to be all fun and go dance on a stage in a really enormous nightclub, before security spots me and asks me to get down.
And then there’s the Green Goblin, which again I love.
I know it’s edging on silly, flirting with ridiculous, but i think it’s quite sexy. It’s all cheekbones and hair pulled up tightly at the sides for even more lift and then BANG, that wonderful, exuberant twist of teased madness. Bit mad hatter, bit rockabilly and LOTS of theatre. Which sometimes, is what you want from your hairstyle. Isn’t it? Something outstanding. Something memorable. (Hint: Yes.)
