Pure at heart

Back in September last year, my beloved friend Evripidis decided to make a video for his song “Pure At Heart” and have Shook Yang Kids (the creators of Baronettes) direct it.  Marina Stat and I were immediately brought on to discuss the make-up and the hair for the project. For Evripidis I kept his natural wavy and just tidied things up a bit, as any 1990’s indie boy would do with his hair.

There is a scene in the video where four passports of Evripidis are shown and of course I had to come up with four completely different looks. This can be sort of a challenge when someone’s hair is as short, so I suggested that not only should I style his hair in lots of ways but I should transform his full beard in different facial hair as well. The video is meant to be funny and trashy so I left my good taste aside and had lots of fun transforming him into the fraudster with the four (ridiculous) faces.

Celia played the girl whose dog Evripidis unleashes. A girl that went jogging in the park. Obviously the hair were pulled up in a ponytail (in the middle of the back) and a headband was added (much prettier than the standard sweatband). A hipster going jogging should look something like this. I kept Celia’s natural waves.

Faye played the girl who works at his office, a sort of mafia environment. I got to glam things up and my inspiration was Sharon Stone’s hair in Casino (1995).

Yiorgos played the bodyguard and he’s also seen at the “office” scene. I was inspired by Mad Men hairstyles quite obviously.

And then it’s the hookers scene. Dionisios played the tranny and he got a black wig with some volume and a French twist. Vanessa’s hair I kept natural and parted deep on the side because let’s face it, when you go out on the street turning tricks, you don’t necessarily have to have a unique hairstyle. Long hair will do.  Klea’s blond hair was teased a lot without smoothing it out afterwards. Big, messy, sexy hair.

 

This video was so much fun to do.
