I cut Vassiliki T’s hair and then did an updo which is a combination of my two favourite recent updos. Back in February this year, backstage at the Carolina Herrera f/w 2011 rtw show, hair genius Orlando Pita did these amazing slick and tight updos and said that he wanted to move away from messy and undone hair, as fashion is also getting more architectural and dressed up. Recently, I got to watch Melancholia, the amazing film by Lars Von Trier and really, really loved Kirsten Dunst’s updo as a bride in the first half of the film. So, I decided to combine the two and put the hair up but not as tight as the Herrera hairdo, plus I definitely wanted to recreate the front of Ms Dunst’s hair, as I find it totally fresh. The result was a slightly loose (but not messy at all) updo and we both loved it. Marina Stat did the make-up.
