Malisa Masci's Latest Collection: Rosamond

In creating her latest collection, Rosamond, award-winning Australian hairdresser Malisa Masci was inspired by the California artist, Christine Rosamond (1947-1994), whose work ranged from simple sketches in pencil to finely detailed watercolors and oils with a dreamy quality. “While the collection was about simplicity, I added an edge to encourage conversation,” says Masci, who incorporated an “edgy British punk rock meets Tinker Bell aesthetic.”

 

 
 
 
The hair color was inspired by fiction and fantasy so there’s a clash of freaky and ethereal, soft and sexy. “We wanted to push the envelope on color as I think the use of creative color has become more important than ever on a shoot,” says Masci, who used techniques that enhanced the vibrant colors, while combining muted pastel hues.

Masci wanted her collection to be soft, feminine and pretty, yet have a modern edge. The styling references included lace and embroidery, while the makeup featured natural tones with a slight darkness around the eyes.
