The Art of Colorful Statement Hair Was on Full Display at Loewe

At today's show, a handful of models wore choppy, architectural mushroom cuts that fell over in the eyes in attention-grabbing colors.

Bright pastels, watercolor prints, and warped shapes dominated today’s Loewe collection, for which 16th-century painter Pontormo served as Jonathan Anderson’s inspiration. Select models embodied the vivid doses of color the artist was known for, wearing choppy, architectural mushroom cuts that fell over the eyes in shades of peachy pink, deep turquoise, amethyst purple, and dark crimson that were color-matched to the clothes.

The mind-bending crops were the handiwork of hairstylist Guido Palau, who crafted the wigs, which he called a “nod to futurism,” in collaboration with Davide, master colorist at Blanche Milano. “It’s hair as an accessory—almost like how you’d pair a handbag with a certain outfit,” explains Palau, who gave each wig a more undone natural texture by finger-raking Hairstory's Hair Balm through the ends. “It can be clashing or totally matched.” Making the case for both a directional crop and an electric pastel dye job, Loewe's statement hair can be swapped out for spring's new It bag if you dare (or, feel free to fake it).
