LFW backstage beauty | Paul Costelloe...
From a very hectic backstage tent to a calm oasis along The Strand. When I arrived at Paul Costelloe, a few minutes early like I always do, it was like being transformed from the typical fashion week craziness of Somerset House, to a countryside retreat, in the middle of london.
With the hair concept created by Toni & Guy's Cos Sakkas, the Costelloe girl took influence from Brigitte Bardot. Voluminous beehives were created with a nod to parisian chic in the form of a cute black ribbon featured on every other girl, all finished off with a very modern, undone, matte texture. This is ultimate femininity, with an imperfect edge.
I think this look is perfect for nights out, or important events when you don't want to look too sleek, but still want to look put together.
Recreate this look:
Saturate hair in sections with Label M Volume Mousse and blowdry in. Backcomb hair up to the root using Label M Resurrection Style Dust to give height as well as creating a sturdy structure. Hair was then brushed back into an undone, soft matte beehive and fastened with a cute, grown up black ribbon. Want more texture? If you've been following me for a while you'll know the Label M Texturising Volume Spray is one of my absolute faaaaaav products ever, slather this on to create a carefree, matte texture. To make this more wearable day to day, go easy on the backcombing and either pull back into a low chignon or a chic half up, half down, relaxed do.
Special shoutout to Paul Costelloe himself for being so welcoming to everyone backstage, he even introduced himself to little old me when I first arrived.
