Inspired by the structures and shapes of the Renaissance Era,
“I wanted ethereal, airy, tousled textures with intricate styling. We wanted to bring out the Psychedelic vibes with the colour and the fun makeup.”
Originally, this piece was going to be created from fabric, a much easier medium to work with, however Crystofer Benson‘s creations for the ARMANI COLLECTION prompted Jacinta to try and sculpt the collar out of hair.
“It took some trial and error but I’m very pleased with the end result.”
On her favourite part of this look: The intricacy of all the braids. I could’ve braided her hair all day creating these looks. You get lost in the masterpiece and when you step back it’s such an exciting feeling to see the look come together.
On the most challenging part of this look: By far the collar. It was something I hadn’t done before and oddly couldn’t find a How-To on Google [haha]. So I had to invent my own process of doing things.
