2011 RAFW Backstage Beauty Report: Bowie

2011 RAFW: Bowie

And so we bid adieu to RAFW for another year with Bowie closing the show — but stay tuned, for on Monday we'll start bringing you all trends, tips and top products from the week. But back to Bowie who ended things on a high (and wide) note thanks to mane man Kenneth Stoddart and his couture creations. Inspired by the silhouette of Bowie's collection, he created two hair shapes — one a high, conical look, the second, super wide. Both featured crimping and teasing, before he piled on product — MoroccanOil Hydrating Styling Cream, followed by the brand's Luminous Hairspray, which Kenneth then "dried," using the heat of the hairdryer to create "shell-like" hair. He told us that Bowie's collection featured lots of white dresses, so they wanted to avoid looking bridal, purposely avoiding "neat" hairstyles, in favour of a "tougher" look. The makeup was inspired by Japanese origami and featured lots of "big, bold red" makeup said Shannon Earls, who led the SLA team,
