Before cutting Penelope’s hair (she colours it herself), I asked her to pose for my blog. The inspiration behind this look was quite clearly Elizabeth I of England (1533-1603). I kept the oval shape of her trademark hairstyle (worn towards the end of her reign) but made it a bit disheveled and used a triple-barrel waver instead of making rows of curls vertically. I left a small amount of hair hang loosely over Penelope’s shoulder and used a hairband with three rows of pearls at the back. Marina Stat did the make-up. I don’t think redheads should dye their brows as red as their hair. Vivid red eyebrows are a thing best left to a make-up artist.
