This year was the biggest supply yet, with the Camilla show alone using a minimum of 15kg of hair.

The highlight of the festival was definatley the Camilla stand alone show on 19th March.

The Camilla show titled ‘And God Created Woman’ was all about women being warriors, it had a very tribal energy and feel.

Hair Director Brad Ngata created the look with dreadlocks, extended plaits and basket weaving to create drama and bring an element of wonder.


How To:

1. Add texture to the hair with a sea salt

2. Add pre-done dreadlocks, extended plaits and basket weaving to create drama.

3. Multi- textural, primal colours, extended length will dramatise the hair and bring an element of wonder.


Fun Fact:

A total of 15kg of Showpony hair extensions were used for the plait extensions, dreadlocks and weaving that was added to the models hair.
