WORDS BY Katie Dohman
The technical style wizards at Haus Salon sometimes need a way to re-electrify their witchcraft, both for clients and to satisfy their own artistic cravings. “When you distill it all down, creativity is just the act of creating, period, end of story. Whenever you get a team together to do those things it’s really magical,” says Charlie Brackney Love, Haus Salon co-founder and creative director. “It is through those exercises that you really do learn about balance and design and proportion and new textures and all that stuff, which distills down to our client work, too.”
So when they could safely reconvene and unleash their magic, the team jumped at the chance, taking inspiration from the spookiest time of year. “Our inspiration was Halloween, and getting to play dress up,” Love says. “It was fantasy, but in a darker sense with all-black wardrobe and Victorian embellishments, plus all those stereotypical things such as fire and horns and spiderwebs, reinterpreted into hair and beauty.” The resulting shoot gives a whole new meaning to “bad hair day.”
