On the final day of Paris Fashion Week S/S 18, Chanel was the cherry on top of a glorious week of fashion. Karl Lagerfeld created an outdoor sanctuary inside of the Grand Palais exhibition hall, where models walked down a boardwalk runway set against greenery and a huge waterfall.
Models wore tweed suits (duh), layered silhouettes complementing the pounding waterfall, and clear plastic accessories that would be perfect on a rainy day. Among the leagues of see-through garments were knee-high boots, bucket hats, and slouchy bags. Even the models’ sleek ponytails were encased in clear Perspex.
The ‘80s inspired blue eyeshadow was garnering plenty of attention — that is, until Sam McKnight, a hairstylist for Chanel, shared a video on Instagram that showed him using a vacuum cleaner to create the hair look. That’s right, a vacuum cleaner.
McKnight held the hair accessories as an extension of the vacuum, and then sucked each model’s hair down the tube. The video then shows him threading the Perspex tube up to the base of the head, and then secured the tube with strings. To match the water theme, the look was completed by making the hair appear wet.
The hair at Chanel’s ready-to-wear show may have been really chic, but we still recommend you don’t try that at home.
