by Professional Beauty India

Lakmé Salon brings the aspirational talent programme to LFW for the 22nd year.

Lakmé Salon & Academy’s Backstage Heroes programme will manifest at the FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) in Mumbai this October 12-16, 2022. Lakmé Salon & Academy’s experts have been creating trendsetting hair and make-up looks for top Indian designers. Lakmé Salon partners with and sponsors one Runway show with a leading designer every season, while its experts also go backstage to create magic for numerous other Runway and Atelier shows during the course of the week. This year, handpicked Backstage Heroes from Lakmé Salon & Academy will create showstopping looks for an array of designers, before bringing them into the salon for the customers.

Pushkaraj Shenai, CEO & Executive Director, Lakmé Lever, said, “Our experts weave magic at FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week every season and then democratise the high-fashion hair and makeup looks in the salon for the customer. Year on year, trendsetting beauty takes the Runway to High Street route, via Lakmé Salon. We’re excited to now bring the Lakmé Salon & Academy Backstage Heroes programme to fashion week, as it gives our experts the opportunity to showcase and hone their skills, while being in the thick of one of India’s most aspirational events, before delighting their clients with the looks they create.”

For the main show, Lakmé Salon has partnered with ace designer Samant Chauhan to present “The Nomad Bride”, a collection that celebrates the backbone of every sartorial piece – the fabric – engulfed in a central Asian, tribal theme. The key make-up looks for this collection are the Golden Diva, encapsulated by blue and green hues on the eyes, a gold glow on the skin and soft, feathery eyebrows; the Pearl Goddess, signified by a dreamy pearl look and glass glow skin; and the Tribular Look, with smokey eyes, bronzed skin and matte lips. The hair will be characterised by flowing waves, unstructured updos, Russian braids and infinity braids interwoven with fabric and lots of hair accessories, to celebrate the Nomad Bride’s free spirit.

Additionally, Lakmé Salon & Academy’s Backstage Heroes will also be creating hair and make-up looks for a host of other designers during the season, including Anand Kabra, Gauri & Nainika and Anju Modi.
