Eight timeless cinema stars featured as part of an interesting experiment by Avant Garde Hair Studio (Canada).
It all started with a passion for cinema and some of the classic big-screen stars who have remained evergreen throughout the years, legends in their own right. The Canadian creative team of Avant Garde Hair Studio attempted to revive the atmosphere of yesteryear, of those stars in that era.
And they did so by producing a bespoke collection, suitably named “Icons”. Rather than copying or comparing past and present, this collection highlights how these legends still wield a huge influence today – even after seventy years, in some cases – on our fashion trends and ideas.
Avant Garde Hair Studio divided the icons into three groups. For each star from the past, they created a modern version with an updated look of the original pose and shot. For the “sexy” category, they rediscovered Brigitte Bardot, Raquel Welch, Betty Grable and Jane Russell. For “grace”, on the other hand, they revived the stars Audrey Hepburn and Rita Hayworth. Finally, the “cultural glamour” group was represented by Marilyn Monroe and Twiggy.
This was a real challenge undertaken by the Canadian hairstylists, not to copy styles but to reinterpret influential looks in an updated version. And the final result is a must-see collection!
