Developing Design Prinicples

This is a fantastic opportunity for you develop your catwalk hair design principles through your research, while collecting pictures and information to collate in your gallery portfolio.

There is a specific design principle to consider when completing the Catwalk look, which is about more detailed hairstyles and high fashion / haute couture. You will have an understanding of /and will research Catwalk Hairstyles/ Make-up/Fashion.

For this activity you will need to access a manikins head using long hair or a model, which has clean and dry hair preferably freshly washed.

You are invited to try the catwalk look technique you have researched, once you have discussed this with your teacher and seen demonstrations of the catwalk look.


Be sure you fill out your Hairstyle_Analysis_Sheet for your Catwalk hair design, have your Teacher view your completed Hairstyle Analysis Sheet, discuss your design.  You are able to make personal modifications to your Catwalk Look Manikin Head as needed.
