Far East Beauty: Choppy Textures and Streams of Silky Hair

Lauren Salapatek | October 31, 2012 | 8:46 AM

Six collection images inspired by the spirit of the Far East are the latest in Caterina Di Biase’s creative journey. As Artistic Director at Heading Out Hair & Beauty in Melboune, Victoria, Australia, the images celebrate color and texture and show Di Biase’s fresh techniques that give her work a particularly individual personality.

Shot on location, the creative team recreated the feel of a monastery; every corner being decorated with hangings or ornaments in vivid colors and the garments collated from international designers archives.

THE HAIR: Di Biase played with new textures that underpin a fresh take on layering and developed a new technique that uses booth smooth and crisp hair textures within the same context, so that you see the Ying and Yang of choppy textures balanced with whippet like streams of silky hair.

THE COLOR: For this shoot Di Biase used one of her new color techniques called ‘Soft Centers’. “When you bite into a chocolate with a soft, creamy center, the delicious liquid oozes out. For this shoot, I treated hair like chocolate. I added strawberry pink, caramel, mint green, light blue and orange colors underneath chocolaty brunette hair, to ooze out and break through creating a soft look,” says Di Biase.

THE MAKE-UP: Make-up artist Kylie O’Toole was heavily influenced by portraits of people in Mongolia with their rosy ‘wind burnt’ cheeks. “I wanted to take this look and mix it with pearly, luminous tanned skin to give it an editorial feel. It also tied in with the slightly punk oriental brief we were all working towards.”
