Imperial Russia inspired the over-the-top beauty look backstage at Zang Toi.


Hairstyles featured soft, frizzy curls in massive, asymmetric shapes, piled onto the tops of the models’ heads. “The shape is a little bit uneven,” said Eiji Yamane of Eiji Salon, for René Furterer. “On the side it’s a little bit bigger, a little unbalanced. I wanted it romantic and a little wide at the side.” To create the look, Yamane first applied René Furterer Vegetal Sculpting Gel all over the hair. He then added in “half head” wigs to increase the size of each bouffant, before using a curling iron to create ample amounts of ringlets. Next, he used René Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo and mussed the curls with his fingers to deconstruct the look and add texture. “It’s more modern, it’s not old-fashioned, [like curls can sometimes be],” said Yamane, who completed the look with the Finishing Spray. “Because the theme was Russia, I saw that as a wide [style] and not conservative.”
