I cut Vanessa’s hair and the inspiration behind the look was Cher in the 1960’s (minus the “sideburns”). It’s a one-length haircut with a long, blunt and rounded fringe covering her eyebrows. I didn’t straighten her hair, so when she moves you can see a bit of a natural wave underneath. This was left so intentionally so the hair screams natural. Marina Stat did the make-up and we ended up with a (young) Cher lookalike.  I so wanted to pay an homage to this living legend. The 1960’s have been an inspiration (as far as beauty goes) in lots of fashion shows recently but Penelope Tree and Twiggy are the only names that keep coming up when hairstylists and make-up artists name their references. Kind of unfair if you ask me.
