Ready, Steady, Go! with Garren: Anna Sui NYFW FW22
Designer Anna Sui tapped the playful energy of Ready, Steady, Go! for her Fall Winter 2022 presentation, with individualized hair looks by Garren using R+Co BLEU.
With the tagline “The weekend starts here!” the ’60s British rock television show Ready, Steady, Go! invited U.K. youth to get lost in the pulsating verve of bands like The Beatles, The Who and The Kinks, as well as the fashion of the era, with dancing audience members swinging to the music in knee-high go-go boots and Mary Quant dresses. For her Fall Winter 2022 presentation, designer Anna Sui tapped that same playful energy, turning out modernized mod looks presented in an array of vibrant tangerines and energetic violets.
For the hair, R+Co BLEU co-founder Garren dug back into his archives to dream up a style that would fit on both the Ready, Steady, Go! soundstage and dance floors of today. A heavy side part gives way to hair blown directionally to one side, with some models prepped with R+Co BLEU Thickening Spray and others with R+Co BLEU Essential Tonic.
Various models peek out from behind a curtain of hair covering one eye; others don thick headbands with side-swept hair cascading over top; all are finished with R+Co BLEU Featherlight Hairspray. A male model morphs into a member of The Beatles, with a new haircut and R+Co BLEU Surreal Styling Serum keeping his hair in check.
“The hair was about individuality, and how youth go to a club and their hair is all different textures--they all blend, but they're not exactly the same," Garren says. "We used products that would allow us to work with the models’ natural texture, give them a texture we wanted, and would last for a full day of shooting on set. We didn’t have one hero product, as each product is as individual as the model, chosen specifically for them, their hair type, and the look we were trying to achieve.”
Get the Look: Side-Swept + Side Part
Generously apply either R+Co BLEU Essential Hair Tonic on thick hair, or R+Co BLEU Magnifier Thickening Spray on fine to normal hair, to add slight texture. Create a deep side part.
Blow dry both the fringe and hair directionally to one side.
Once dry, finish with R+Co BLEU Featherlight Hairspray to add soft hold.
