Behind the scenes at the Olympic Closing Ceremony with Spice Girls Hair Stylist Christian Vermaak
I was lucky enough to meet the wonderful Christian Vermaak on a job a couple of months ago. We had a blast, Christian introducing me to a whole world of You Tube hilarity and bonded over our week together.
If you don't know his name straight away you will know his work. Christian is Hair and Makeup Artist for Kylie, Dannii, Holly Valance and Emma Bunton (just to name a few) so when I found out he had created hairstyles for three of the Spice Girls for their Olympic appearance I had to ask him some questions...
How did you become involved in the Olympics Hair team for the Spice Girls?
Was it just her hair or the other girls as well?
It must of been incredible to be backstage at the Olympics!
Any behind the scenes tips or tricks?
Did you have a brief for the job or just go with the flow?
What were your key products for this particular job?
Emma loves a bit of volume... and there is nothing better for volume than the Schwarzkopf Dust It. It's amazing.
Melanie C's pony needed to endure the wind from the taxi, so the Kevin Murphy Session Spray kept it locked and loaded and didn't move ALL night
Geri's hair needed some texturising, and I've found the L'Oreal Dirty Clean Matt Paste worked brilliantly.
How can we get amazing hair like the girls?
Experiment with your hair. Sometimes the greatest styles come out of the greatest disasters!
