Roberts Wood is a luxury concept brand founded by Katie Roberts-Wood following her graduation from the Royal College of Art.
The S/S 17 collection features transparent x-ray like garments, revealing their underlying construction like radiographs. This is in contrast to the relaxed work-inspired detailing on aprons, shirts and trousers, hinting at the ordinary and every day.
As ever the hair and make-up of a presentation can really set the tone for a new collection. Sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, backstage hairstylist Louis Ghewy was on hand to create the perfect hair for the S/S 17 collection.
Louis Ghewy explains,
The brief was for the girls to have some sort of individuality. We took inspiration from schoolgirls in the Victorian era who were hanging out together and we looked at the German dancer/choreographer Pina Bausch. Both these references had an element of 90’s undone styling.
The hair was prepped with OSIS+ Hairbody and OSIS+ Session Label Volumizing Root Spray, which was dried into the hair whilst focusing on getting the sides nice and smooth, yet leaving a lot of natural texture on the top of the head.
To style we pulled the hair back into a ponytail leaving the sides out and secured it off at the nape of the neck. We then pulled the side sections of the hair over the ears and then secured it together with the ponytail.
Using OSIS+ Dust It through the length of the hair we twisted the ponytail into a messy bun allowing the length of the ponytail to fall down.
The look was finished with the OSIS+ Session Hairspray.
