ALL ABOARD, TAKE A RIDE ON THE CRAZY BRAID

FFS are crazy for braids!

These surreal and extravagantly braided hairstyles were created by the professional Hair Academy – Studio Marisol using plaited hair from Spanish designers CuldeSac, to promote their Boisbuchet Workshop titled CRAZY HAIR in conjunction with Vitra Design Museum.

CuldeSac says:  “Our intention is to review the hair subject as a social and cultural element. Why do barristers still use wigs? Why does a woman have her hair done for a special occasion? Let’s give emotional value to this aspect as well. Let’s wonder why a good hair do could make us feel happier, more beautiful or uglier, better or worse… Let’s find the way to transfer this concept into a real object. Several exercises will guide us through this workshop, varying from simple to complex, from obvious to surprising, and from observation to experience.

How does hair enhance a fashion illustration?
