KEVIN.MURPHY STYLES MADRID BRIDAL FASHION WEEK

This year’s Madrid Bridal Week was held in the beautiful Palacio de Cibeles in Madrid, Spain, where our very own SESSION.MASTER Massimo Morello directed the hair with the support of our team of stylists, including STYLE.MASTERS Sarah Lund and Paz Bamrolia, along with PLATINUM.KEYS Marios Neofytou and Misjel van de Brande, together with the KEVIN.MURPHY team of stylists in Spain.When creating the looks for the hair, Massimo designed a variety of looks inspired by individualism and gave each designer a custom style based off of the mood of their unique collection. “I wanted to have a red thread throughout the looks, so this season I chose to create different styles of rolls and twists in the hair. When it comes to bridal hair, I believe that the more natural, the better, so I like to use my hands instead of a brush and tools in order to keep the texture of the hair as natural as possible,” says Morello.Some of the most-loved products backstage in Madrid included HAIR.RESORT.SPRAY to prep and texturise the hair, BODY.BUILDER to add volume, and DOO.OVER to finish the looks. Our team also added texture and volume into the hair with ANTI.GRAVITY.SPRAY, SESSION.SPRAY, FRESH.HAIR and BEDROOM.HAIR. Read on to re-create these runway looks!
