LIZZIE FOX IS AWARDED SECOND PLACE AT THE SHU UEMURA 2014 MUSE IMAGE AWARDS
Sally Montague Hair Group Art Team Colour Specialist and Sadler Gate Salon Manager, Lizzie Fox, celebrated being awarded second place earlier this year at the exclusive Shu Uemura Art of Hair photoshoot at the luxury haircare brand’s 2014 Muse Image Awards.
The awards, which were launched last year, are sponsored by Tribute Magazine – the high-end artistic magazine for hairdressers – and aim to give visibility to stylists with vision and talent. Entrants were invited to submit an image of an avant-garde female in order to win a place on a regional shoot where they could create an avant-garde look of their own.
Lizzie’s entry mood board was submitted to the judges alongside her entry photograph, pictured below.
MY INSPIRATION, LIZZIE FOX
My initial inspiration for the look came from the Dolce & Gabbana mosaic print and the Sicilian influence which is at the forefront of all their iconic collections. I was especially drawn towards the royal pose and crown, and wanted to create my own more abstract version within the hair, without using any ornaments. I didn’t want to create anything too structured and so I started looking into different fabrics and architecture to see how I could develop my look. I found the Revolution tower building in Panama and this influenced the twists within the crown. I also wanted to create a contrast between the regal and the rough, looking at texture of rope helped me define the texture with the hair. To create my look I used Shu Uemura Art of Hair Tasai cream and Liquid Fabric which gave great texture and a malleable hold.
Lizzie was selected from hundreds of high-class entries from across the UK and given the opportunity to work with renowned hairdresser India Miller and top fashion photographer Jack Eames as part of the photoshoot prize.
