VOGUE ITALIA w/ Elisa Sednaoui Luxurious Cascading Locks -
This Vogue Italia Suggestions editorial that mixed it up with the universe of professional dancers and the fashion industry was a unique and fascinating experience for me – the atmosphere was charged.
Working with a great team – from Giulio Martinelli, Stephane Sednaoui, Alice Ghendrih, Elisa Sednaoui to all the other talents on-set … & this amazing group of fantastic dancers - I had the feeling I had been teleported to a broadway rehearsal in NYC. The whole day at Studio Rouchon in Paris was electric.
The idea for the look was to travel back in time to the mid seventies with Elisa as the “étoile”, ”star”, ”diva” surrounded by adoring fans performing a stunningly beautiful ballet. For this mid-seventies style Giulio, Stephane and I decided that Elisa’s hair should be a perfect cascade of luxurious, glossy waves.
To create the style:
I wet Elisa’s hair and added some René Furterer Leave-in conditioner to enhance the shine and silk when blowdrying.
Soft waves were created with a BaByliss medium curling iron.
For a mega-watt gloss finish to the hairstyle I added a few drops of Phytolisse Ultra Gloss Finishing Serum
