A Hat Trick for Goodwood Revival

Shay-Anne Aboud by Scott Chalmers Photography for Vintage Hair Lounge at Goodwood Revival 2013
A touch of film director Tim Burton's world influenced our official Vintage Hair Lounge at Goodwood Revival 2013 photoshoot this year, as we paid tribute to the 1930s stars who played with their androgynous sex appeal, whilst showcasing avant garde styling for a truly memorable day with our effortlessly stylish model Shay-Anne Aboud as the ultimate female dandy with a hint of the gothic. Her top hat "hair hat", photographed by Scott Chalmers, turned more than a few heads, so here's a short photo diary of the morning's work that went into this beautiful image.....

First, we crimped and pincurled....
Francesco Zamolo and Gloria Holloway start the hair prep
We sectioned.....
Sharon Holloway starts construction
And backbrushed....
Pincurled section of hair left intact as volume created on the crown
And backbrushed....
There's a lot of hair here
And backbrushed....
And it's very very long
Until we got shape....
Top sections smoothed and gripped into place
Time for a pause to start makeup....
Prepping the eyes
Working on the eyes....
A combination of 1920s and 1930s green tones
Before airbrushing foundation with Airbase....
Airbase High Definition Airbrush Makeup
And finishing touches to eyes....
Adding top and bottom lashes
Before returning to the hair chair to unclip the pincurls and start work on the brim....
The sectioned off hair is folded and pinned into place to make the hat brim
Making sure we keep a "jaunty angle"....
We're now on the "home strait"
Let the waving begin....
Smart bit of finger waving by Gloria
The brim can now be completed....
Shay-Anne's endless patience is a joy!
Tricky bit round the front....
Blending the brim
Plenty of Davines hairspray on this....
Getting the brim firm
Nearly there....
Oh the concentration!
Shay-Anne gets into costume and has finishing touches....
Katy Leicester from handpickedvintage.com adjusts the cravat
And at midday our models are ready to meet the crowd!
