These backstage hair and make-up scenes were taken at the Seoul-based 2015/16 Cruise collection show.  The hair designed and created by hairdresser  Sam McKnight and make-up designed for CHANEL by make-up artist Tom Pecheux.

Session hair stylist Sam McKnight created large plaits made with colour contrasting synthetic hair smoothed over with bees wax with large hair accessories.  The idea was originally sent to him by designer Karl Lagerfeld based around Korean nobility.  The make-up created and designed by Tom Pecheux using false lashes on the top and bottom, pencilled in a stronger brow, added a soft muted blush, and then to finish an added matte lip colour/pencil with a coral/pink finish.

After the skin had been prepared with Hydra Beauty,  these were the make-up items used for the show.
