PARIS — Makeup artist Pat McGrath and hairstylist Eugene Souleiman crafted otherworldly beauty creations for Yohji Yamamoto’s fall 2014 show.

“In a way, [they’re] like powerful dolls,” McGrath said of the models, who had feathered shapes drawn over their brows and under their eyes with pencils and a bit of eyeliner. Some blush was applied, too.

Souleiman was inspired by color, saying: “I got really excited when Yohji gave me this kind of felting wool, and I thought the volumes were really very beautiful in the collection.”

The coifs involved a mix of colorful strands of the felting wool affixed to models’ hair, which was done up in all sorts of ways – from braids to mysterious bulbous forms on tops of their heads.

“I wanted to do these abstract shapes with these abstract colors,” said Souleiman. “It’s a bit like if Jackson Pollock was a hairdresser, that’s how he would choose to work.”
