ARE YOU READY FOR BARBARELLA?
The 60's were a very special time for hair. We keep returning to it in our Hair Movie Night series because there is an infinite supply of inspiration to draw from. And what hairdresser can deny their love for the big, glamorous, foxy hair in Barbarella?
I love this film because it's so outrageous and provocative, without being overly sexual. Barbarella might be a temptress, but she also maintains her doe-eyed innocence!
For this shoot, we used our brand new Halo Couture pieces to give our model's hair that Victoria Secret effect. I originally set her hair in hot rollers, but went back over it with a curling iron to spruce up the waves a bit more.
A while back, my wig friend Roselie showed me how to backcomb a curl in the crown, then roll, and bobby pin it to the scalp. This technique is what helps keep that bouffant voluminous! (Though the San Francisco wind immediately started to deconstruct my teasing effort!)
For color, I applied a gold and chestnut balayage highlight six weeks before the shoot. The day of the photo shoot, we gave her a fresh trim and did a L’Oreal Dia Light 9.03 toner to revive the shine and sparkle.
