These images of hair development have evolved by gaining inspiration from: traditional tribal hair style, the headdress and accessories of the Mursi Tribe , the geometric shapes and jewellery which has been a constant theme in my research including lip plates , the artwork of Damyoneong Yoo-hartlaub and the sculptures that I saw at the Horniman museum , London.
These are just practices the finished hair for my shoots will be finished off using products and may have crepe hair , fullers earth orother accessories .To achieve this style I tied my own hair up into a bun on top of my head . I then used 3 sets of clip in extentions and clipped each on seperatly around the bun and form a larger bun each time they were added .
The final image is with all 3 extensions clipped in , with the highlights, I felt this gave the impression of material piled up . Also if I was to use this in my final shoot accessories could be added such as feathers or colour to give the base of a headdress . This as very quick to complete so this would be a could technique to use for the catwalk .
This was inspired by the mursi tribe headdress . The metal hoops are amazing and I feel this represents them well. It was very quick to achieve .
