Elegant models swathed in black capes and white geisha masks were the perfect foil for the stunning hairstyles created by Gatsby & Miller as part of the St Albans Fashion Week.
The five-strong team led by Gatsby & Miller Salon Director Julie Church, carefully chose stark simplicity for their six models’ clothes to ensure the emphasis was on their hair.
It was a hectic few hours for the talented team as they also did the hair for 11 models in the main Catwalk Show in the iconic surroundings of St Alban’s Cathedral.
“Working with the models was a real eye-opener, a high-octane experience,” says Harpenden Salon Manager Chris Goodman. “The organisers of the fashion week take it very seriously so we knew we had to get it all absolutely right. We arrived at the cathedral about 3pm on the day and worked flat out on the hairpieces from then on and right through the event as the fashion show models each stepped out on the runway several times wearing outfits from different local businesses.
The St Albans Fashion Week, now in its third year, is a premier date in the town’s calendar.
