The Runaways Rock Out Backstage At Marios Schwab
While we’ve seen our fair share of seventies heroines thus far in London—the disco queen (Unique, Giles); the South Beach jet-setter (House of Holland); and the low, loose ponytail-wearing girl-next-door at Jaeger—one archetype from that decade has thus far been left untouched. That would be the burgeoning female rocker. Thankfully, Marios Schwab righted that wrong, adding Joan Jett—and her image-defining spiky shag—to the inspiration mix at his show this morning, enlisting the services of hairstylist Luke Hersheson and his trusty wig-trimming shears. Hersheson and his team set to work cutting wigs into Jett’s signature short-in-back, wispy-at-the-neck crop before saturating strands in L’Oréal Professionnel’s Texture tonic to give them a slightly grimy, I-just-rolled-off-of-the-tour-bus look. Jett’s black-rimmed eyes were also in full effect, thanks to makeup artist Petros Petrohilos, whose lid lining was not contained to raven-haired models alone. A few blond hairpieces also showed up on the runway, giving Cherie Currie a well-deserved shout-out for Spring as well.
