The style was created by famed fashion industry hairstylist Guido Palau, who used dyed wigs from Redken Global Colour creative director Josh Wood to achieve maximum volume. Wood took to Instagram to break down the look by the numbers: "50 wigs, 3700 miles, 250 colour processes, 150 hours of prep, 11 team members, 7 models, and 1 inspiration."
Palau's #BIGHAIR (as he aptly hashtagged it) caps a show filled with equally magnified colour and design.
Other models wore equally show-stopping floral headpieces.
Valentino's clouds of feathers, gold-trimmed capes, baroque prints, and lush satin ribbons was inspired by the Molly Bloom soliloquy at the end of James Joyce's Ulysses.
The show was soundtracked by opera star Maria Callas, who may have also inspired the retro hair. A perfect contrast to the thoroughly modern fantasy creations on the runway.
