A few weeks ago, I designed the hairstyles for Celia Kritharioti’s runway show for the Madwalk Fashion Rocks event. It was a last moment assignment so I spent a week without hardly any sleep, to prepare. The combination of lack of sleep/food with inhaling massive clouds of hairspray, was hallucinations-inducing.

Initial sketches and tests.

Back at the studio, preparing enough hair for 18 girls. The lineup of models kept changing and thus, the hair colors that were required.

6am call, I fell into an assembly line trance, models sitting down, getting done, next.

I don’t remember much from that day, most of it I later saw in photos online.

18 girls in 13 hours, in a hairstyle that required 1 hour and 20 minutes, getting it down to 45 mins for each model, with the help of the assistants that my agents got for me. When it was over, I felt exactly as if I was drunk. Loved it. Fell inside a taxi and slept the way home.
