We LOVED getting the call to provide wow-factor hair and makeup for The Clothes Show’s pop up sneak peaks at The Bullring on 3rd and 4th October, hosted by fashion and celeb stylist Kalee Hewlett.
Luke Pluckrose and Tom Berry from Saks Art Team are no strangers to hair at Clothes Show as they head up our Backstage teams every time. Hollie Simpson – one of our recently appointed Beauty Experts and salon owner of Saks Beauty Teesside – was thrilled to bag this job as she’s a big fan and was supported by our makeup darling Stevie Jo Sargesson of Saks Bishop Auckland.
ADDING THE WOW FACTOR TO KEY AUTUMN WINTER TRENDS
Luke, Tom, Hollie and Stevie Jo got down to biz getting creative with hair and makeup to enhance key AW15 trends for gorgeous catwalk looks showcasing Red Alert, Bohemia, Dark Victorian and Be Bold trends.
For hair, Luke says: “This was a perfect opportunity to work with hair jewellery and we threaded small gold rings around the models’ heads and through centre partings. This adornment worked really well to enhance the big loose waves and sleek hair looks we’d created.”
For makeup, Hollie says: “Dark smoky eyes are SO versatlle and we worked them with vibrant red lips for a striking look and a nod to upcoming party-season and with nude matte lips for a softer, girly date-night feel.”
Hollie continues: “We love using YoungBlood mineral makeup in Saks salons and Backstage. It’s amazing on and off camera and gives an amazing finishing glow to skin… flawless and airbrushed.”
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND THE CLOTHES SHOW IN DECEMBER
We go way back and The Clothes Show’s Sarah Parker says: “We are delighted to once again be working with Saks Hair & Beauty, as the official Backstage Hair and Make Up partner to the Fashion Theatre, for the second year running. Their stylists and beauty therapists are passionate about transforming customers and offering the runway look, that’s why it’s fantastic that they’ll be running the Pamper Lounge again offering our visitors manicures and an array of hair looks.”
Luke says: “Everyone at Saks loves the vibe of The Clothes Show and we’ve built up a great association with the Show – we’re all looking forward to making this year bigger and better.”
This year is special for Hollie as she’s heading up our Backstage Makeup Team and says: “Can’t wait! I’m most happiest when it’s me and my brushes backstage. We’re so looking forward to interpreting the looks again this year!”
