AN HOMAGE TO CRAFTMANSHIP

Die Liga Studio take historical reference for their latest hairdressing collection.

Keeping inspired and expressing creativity has not been easy over the last year. We haven’t been able to draw on many of the normal inspirational points such as film launches, events, galleries and travel. To get inspired, it’s therefore key to look at your immediate environment, your team and what is within yourself, to drive your work forwards.

Inspiriert zu bleiben und Kreativität auszudrücken war im letzten Jahr nicht einfach. Wir konnten nicht auf die üblichen Inspirationsquellen wie Filmpremieren, Veranstaltungen, Galerien und Reisen zurückgreifen. Um sich inspirieren zu lassen, ist es daher wichtig, auf die unmittelbare Umgebung, das Team und alles, was in einem steckt, zurückzugreifen, um sein Business voranzutreiben.

This is exactly what Frank and Michael Senner did for their recent salon photo shoot. Die Liga Studio in Reutlingen, Germany, is located in an area that has long been dominated by the textile industry, a place where crafts and craftsmanship developed over many years and where long ago a dye factory was located. For their latest shoot, the brothers wanted to pay homage to craftsmanship, the artistic skills that, without a doubt, are so essential to the hairdressing profession.

Genau das haben Frank und Michael Senner für ihr letztes Salon-Fotoshooting getan. Die Liga aus Reutlingen befindet sich in einem Gebiet, das seit langem von der Textilindustrie dominiert wird, einem Ort, an dem sich über viele Jahre hinweg Handwerk und Handwerkskunst entwickelt haben und in dem sich vor langer Zeit eine Färberei befand. Für ihr letztes Shooting wollten die Brüder der Handwerkskunst huldigen und den kreativen Fähigkeiten, die zweifellos für den Friseurberuf so wichtig sind.

Combining fashion, lifestyle and craft, the team created five looks inspired by style icons from past eras, interpreted in a totally modern and fresh way. To achieve their vision the haircuts were kept relatively simple, using techniques based on TIGI Classic Cuts, while the focus was to design looks referencing the past. The styling and finishing of each hairstyle pushed the stylists to create their own product cocktails to give new textures and a playful finish to their looks.

Das Team kombinierte Mode, Lifestyle und Handwerk und kreierte fünf Looks, die von Stilikonen vergangener Epochen inspiriert und auf völlig moderne und frische Weise interpretiert wurden. Um ihre Vision zu verwirklichen, wurden die Haarschnitte mit Techniken, die auf TIGI Classic Cuts basierten, relativ einfach gehalten, während der Schwerpunkt auf der Gestaltung der Looks lag, die Bezug nehmen auf die Vergangenheit. Das Styling und die Veredelung jeder Frisur verantworten die Stylisten, die ihre eigenen Produktcocktails dazu kreierten, um dem Look neue Texturen und ein verspieltes Finish zu verleihen.

THE CHELSEA LOOK
