Taking the reins for the Chanel Metiers d'Art show in Rome, hair genius Sam McKnight created the sexy beehive look worn by the model lineup which included fashion industry stars Lara Stone, Bella Hadid and Freja Beha Erichsen.
"Karl had the idea of something with an air of the French actresses like Anouk Aimee and Romy Schneider who were idolised by the Italian directors at Cinecitta Roma in the late Fifties and early Sixties," Sam told Vogue.
How to get the look? Sam explains exactly how he made it happen: "I used L'Oreal Professionel Tecni Art Full Volume Extra Mousse blow-dried onto the crown, then backcombed with Oribe's Dry Texturizing Spray, and then if some girls' hair was still too perfectly clean and silky I sprayed a little Fudge Salt Spray only on the ends, or reactivated product that was already there with a spritz of water.
"Dry curly hair was blown out, with lashings of Moroccanoil Treatment. All in all, I didn't brush the ends or front of the hair, and tucked a section behind the ear, to show off those fabulous Sixties hoop earrings."
