Invité Spécial: Oeuvres D'Art - Hair Sculptures -

Invité Spécial: Oeuvres D’Art – Hair Sculptures

An Invitation from Coiffure de Paris gave me carte blanche to push the boundaries of creativity and explore possibilities of hair, hairstyles. Oscar Niemeyer’s architecture in Brasilia was source of my inspiration.

With Niemeyer’s buildings in mind, I created these hairstyles, hair sculptures, hair art to celebrate architectural style : arches, bridges, cathedrals, vertical and horizontal lines, planes of perspective, volume and empty space – and importantly to have fun with the creative process, the adventure, to see what I could discover and where I could go with it.

I love playing with hair volume and balance and now I worked in an enormous amount of empty space to translate my inspiration, my passion — into hairstyles that defy gravity, hairstyles that sweep and curve, that are feminine, natural in their elegance and minimal in their design.

I focused on the many different angles and perspectives, how the lines flow and always wherever you stand, wherever you look from –  the balance, the purity.  Purity was the global signature I wanted to use to tie all the different hairstyles together.

To create the look I used long fine pieces of hair that I brushed well before mounting on a support.

I then covered the pieces with a thick layer of gel and let them dry for a few hours until hard. I repeated this process for some pieces to ensure that the end result would be solid and balanced and comfortable when worn.

I used extra long, thick, bobby pins to join the pieces into different arrangements to create the finished shape for each look.

I had drawn illustrations of how I envisioned each piece but I allowed myself to be guided by feeling and inspiration to marry all the elements — the intention, the model, the style — into a coherent whole.
