Come to the altar of this diptych display where strands mimic Renaissance sculptures that only photographer, Alexandra Von Fuerst can provide. With cinematic visuals, the latest MDCBeauty story provides a conduit into a fantasy world of red, white, and black hues. With a delicate hand, hairstylist Olivier Schawalder curls and coils model Unia Pakhomova tresses into polished chignons of the ornate sort. A ruffle here, some lace there; Pakhomova solidly frames these delicate selects with an unflinching, slightly sinister gaze. Every rose has its thorn.
