Hair how to: Jimmy Paul for ghd at Moschino

One of the standout shows at last month’s Milan Fashion Week was the Moschino Game Show - where no one leaves empty-handed! Masterminded by campy cool creative director, Jeremy Scott, it was fun from start to finish – and that included for the models. 
The game show concept has long been an unabashedly joyful exercise in super-camp fun - a bold, technicolour escape from reality that you look forward to at the end of the day. “There’s a reason that game shows are beloved by millions of people around the globe,” said Scott, “with as much variety as there are people”.
From cleaning materials to breakfast cereals - with artisan-applied panels and stripes of sequin and crystal – the dresses that hit the catwalk were “designed to make you feel like you’ve won life’s jackpot”. Then there were the fabulously cut and draped silk jersey dresses in bold colours that came heaped with jewelled necklaces and cut-out panels - finery fit for daytime TV or after hours extravaganza.
Legendary makeup artist Tom Pecheux created the perfect game show host face to match, whilst Jimmy Paul and the ghd team pulled off some seriously dramatic bouffants. “I am so happy I can work with Moschino and Jeremy Scott here at Milano fashion week for the first time,” said Paul backstage, “this show let me and my team really get our creativity juices flowing and create unique and unforgettable hair looks.”
Three words used to describe the hairstyles in the show were “funny, sexy and humorous”, added Paul, who created a series of hairstyles inspired by the game shows of the 80s and interpreted using super sized wigs. “Big and sexy hair became a sort of signature look for me,” he said.

Before applying wigs, the hairstylists prepared the models by creating sectioned braids to ensure wigs could easily fit and been fixed to the head. 
Next, the wigs were cut and then dried using the ghd air® hairdryer together with ghd ceramic brush to add volume and movement to the final look.
Then, wigs were teased using the ghd narrow dressing brush and brushed with the ghd oval dressing brush to smooth.
To finish the look, Jimmy used the ghd final fix spray. “We used tons of this hairspray to freeze the looks and make the hair hard and very shiny,” says Jimmy. “It’s a great product because it’s very flexible and it can be used just to fix the hairstyle or to make it more.” To set the hairspray, the ghd team used the ghd air® hairdryer to freeze the look.
