Innovative fashion designer Louise Goldin—renowned for creating her own knitted fabrics and textures and for her brilliant techniques in structuring sculpted silhouettes—has always designed for the confident woman with a strong sense of personal style. Goldin’s keen interest in science, chemistry and art and the force of her intellect also came through in the alchemy practiced by celebrity hairstylist Anthony Turner of Art Partner to design extreme futuristic hair looks for the highly anticipated Louise Goldin Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
Anthony finished each look with strategic swipes of white hair “paint.”
Beyond edgy, the close-to-the-head look that seemed to have neither a beginning nor end also beautifully showcased the ethereal make-up, all about luminous, moon-lit skin and a matte brown lip created by Hannah Murray, key make-up artist for M.A.C. Here we go backstage with Anthony and his team for the scoop on the art of infusing hair with show-stopping surrealism.

« The René Furterer VEGETAL SCULPTING GEL, along with any bumps and imperfections in the hair, were brushed through with a Mason Pearson brush. Hair was then wrapped around the head from the back on the left side and all the way over to the right, from ear to ear.
« Taking hair in sections from left to right and misting hair with water to help smooth and flatten hair even further, I repeated this step until all hair was wrapped over to the right. The René Furterer VEGETAL SCULPTING GEL acted as a molding agent to sculpt and “plaster down” the hair, holding it in place while adding an incredible gleaming finish.
Furterer VEGETAL FINISHING SPRAY to set and secure the look.
« When hair is this sleek and smoothed down, it calls for something unreal and unexpected to catch the eye on the runway. To play against the spectrum of tones in Louise Goldin’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection which ranged from pale powder pink to deep emerald green with lots of black and white I gave each head a few swipes of stark white hair “paint.” We made it pliable and easy to work onto hair when we mixed it with René Furterer LISSEA leave-in smoothing fluid, which also helped to keep the hair in good condition. The horizontal swipe of white also reflects the graphic shapes of the clothes.
