‘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….
