Elle Muliarchyk goes underground with Aline Weber envisioning the Brazilian model in all sorts of mercurial nighttime hues. Smokey and romantic is the team’s beauty motif, partnering the bold rouges with playful accents. The after-hour glam is the creation of Sir John while the carefree hair is courtesy of David von Cannon. Designer Zana Bayne provides her ultra-femme leather harnesses to the mix to vamp it up and add to the rebellious look.

Colorist Aura Friedman by photographer Tom Munro. All images courtesy of Aura Friedman

The world of Technicolor dreamcoat hues has caught on quickly in modeling as the sure fire way to get noticed. Colorist extraordinaire, Aura Friedman, stands as one of the leaders for the trend having transformed tresses into every pigment imaginable for magazines like Teen Vogue, Marie Claire, i-D, and Wonderland. Models like Soo Joo Park, Charlotte Carey, & Aline Weber have put their strands in her hands to transform them into shades of a Pantone color wheel, from Aruba blue to Papaya to Celestial blond. We talked with the hair painter about the altering nature of hair dye, the importance of individuality, and who she can’t wait to get her hands on next.

There was a time when Friedman remembers changing a model’s hair to an unexpected color wasn’t as accepted as now. “My first transformation of Soo Joo we thought ‘This is going to be insane! People are going to go crazy’ and it literally took a year before people really caught on.” But when they did, it was an explosion. From campaigns with Chanel to walking for Tom Ford, Soo Joo’s path blasted to the top with a L’Oreal Paris contract cementing her place amongst fashion’s elite.

Yet, it’s not always as easy as piling on the toner for every model that walks through Friedman’s door. The master stresses that personality has more to do with carrying the look than anything. “Just like an actress can become type casted, it’s easy for a model to become type casted when it comes to wild colored hair. I think that there are very special girls, like Charlotte Free, Yuan Bo Chao, or Chloe Norgaard, that are the exception but I don’t think that’s the case for every model who dyes their hair those colors.” With the added factor of maintenance, it brings to question just how many barrels of Manic Panic or Pravana will it take to stand out to casting directors come September?

And, why this sudden push for unnatural shades on the runway and in reality? Friedman theorizes, “it’s not the 80s anymore where people have to conform and be a part of society’s boxes. We have a lot of dot-comers that look however they want and move into the upper echelon. It’s more about wearing on the outside what you’re feeling on the inside.” Silver-gray and cotton candy pink dyed hair has almost become the norm with models like Marga Esquivel and Fernanda Ly taking on the brazen hues with ease. Only time will tell how long this painterly trend will stick but for now, the artsy strands are a refreshing departure from what nature intended.

The amfAR Gala was held Tuesday night at Spring Studios in New York City. The annual event is held to raise awareness towards the fight against HIV/AIDS and as an umbrella occasion for equality. The night was steeped in buzz as attendees included honorees and performers like Miley Cyrus and Mary J. Blige, while the runway was studded with male supers like Alex Lundqvist and David Agbodji–all out for the cause with 60 models cast by Drew Linehan. In the midst of the pre-show excitement, photographer Kevin Tachman captured the strapping lineup in their playful stylings and Daniel Garofali made sure to catch a few remarks from the big-hearted hunks especially for models.com. Swoon.

More information can be found at Amfar.org.
