Stylist Luke Hersheson shares with The Daily the look behind Peter Pilotto.

“Although the clothing is very ‘lady-like’ the hair embodies a modern edginess which is not too extravagant.

This look is a super-simple and paired down to complement both the ladylike dresses but also the bomber style pieces within the collection.  We played with various different placements of a sleek ballerina bun, but in the end, placing it just above the bone in the centre of the back of the head gave it an element of toughness.  Although the clothing is very ‘lady-like’ the hair embodies a modern edginess by the way in which it is pulled back from the face and is secured firmly and with exact precision.

The hair is initially prepped with a cocktail of L’Oreal Professionnel tecni art pli and tecni art gloss control.  It is then combed back with a fine comb and tied into a ponytail. The ponytail is then straightened in sections with iron’s and smoothed using tecni art liss Control+, before being twisted tightly and wrapped into a very polished bun and secured with pins.

Finally, the hair is finished off with L’Oreal Professionnel Infinium force 4 to ensure maximum hold.”
