‘Acceptable in the ’80s’ by Pamela Cooney

by | 13 Sep 2018

“I was recently looking through old family photos, and came across a photos of my mum from the ’80s looking sassy. I was really drawn to the photo – I admired my mum’s energy, and loved her outfit, style, and of course, her hair! This inspired me to create a collection, taking strong influence from the photo, but giving it my own modern twist.

“I wanted to recreate the banana clip effect seen in the original photo, but instead of using pins and hairspray, for a softer finish I utilised curls to make manipulating the hair a little easier and to create exaggerated 80’s shapes. I also adding a couple of label m accessories to the hair, reflecting the trends of the current season.”
