Hair Extraordinaire

Back in July, I introduced you to the hair talents of Charlie Le Mindu His most recent show, entitled 'Burka Curfew' for On/Off (sponsored by L'Oreal Professionel) held for the first time this season at Paris Fashion Week.

As the first hairdresser to actually show at Fashion Week, he has been successfully doing so since 2009, creating a link between the hair and fashion world in a way that has never been done before. His extreme creations, may not be wearable in every day life, yet I'm sure we can all appreciate the amazing skill and imagination behind his work. Like an avant garde editorial brought to life on the catwalk, with the right mix of high fashion and controversy, he never fails to deliver a captivating collection.

Charlie's SS12 collection pushed the boundaries of reality and fantasy, featuring a colour pallette of midnight black with a high gloss finish and deep ink blue tones throughout. It followed an Arabic theme showcasing his fabulous hairy creations from wigs and hair pieces to actual dresses made from hair- some of which have been recently worn by Lady Gaga herself who is an avid fan of Charlie's work.

Here are just a few images from this collection:
