‘Love2Braid wanted to show more Braidstyles for MEN in 2017
selected the best Male Hair Models
In 2015 we did our first Manbraids Collection and it was shared on different hair platforms for men. We knew we wanted more and made the ‘ordinary extraordinary’ by creating our Manbraids 2016 Collection. After publishing this collection we wanted more MANBRAIDS in 2017!! So let the work begin…
Step 1 : Vision and Theme
It is a fact there is gonna be a Manbraids 2017 collection with our male hairmodel Johnny Lefrandt and photographer Russell Pearson but ‘in between’ we wanted to show more styles for men! The challenge begun when the theme ‘Warriors & Knights’ was created..
Step 2 : Moodboards
‘Moodboards’ were made quickly and but the only thing was…where do we get the outfits and where do we find those men with great hair??
Step 3 : Search for the right team
End of 2016 we searched the internet & in the streets to find the ‘Best Male Hair Models’ for this shoot. We did it, because we found and selected 6 awesome guys for this project! Belinda as a photographer because she understands my vision without saying too many words and sweet Ayten as a MUA!!
Step 5 : Location
Studio34x, Almere is a professional studio where we wanted to shoot this. Perfect light arranged by Michiel Fischer and enough space to welcome the whole team and get to work.
Step 6 : Styling
Passionate and driven are the words that suits ARRRFantasy’s Arvid van Vulzen. A true artist that makes exclusive handmade outfits. A owns such a great expertise on those styles.
The ‘SCI FI Warrior’ outfit was handmade and designed by Rachel de Kooker, Atelier Chimaera.
Only in our wildest dreams we were dreaming about outfits like these….
Step 7 : Day of the Photoshoot
The energy the vibe!! We had fun and it looked you were walking around on the GAME of THRONES / Lord of the Rings set. We all worked hard from 1800-0000.
Step 8 : The Selection
We fell in love with the pictures and there for it was so hard to select the best ones. The whole team did awesome work and we could not wait for the results.
Step 9: Final edit and Blog
Belinda did a great job and made Love2braid’s vision came to life! The pictures actually came to life.
A week before the big festival ‘Elfia’ we published our work. The week of ‘Warriors & Knights’ from Monday until Saturday… our best male hair models were launched!
Love2Braid wrote extra posts about the hairstyles and outfits. And don’t miss out on the Ancient Knight & the Samurai tutorials!
