Who: We Are Kindred

When: 11.00am, May 18, The Box, Carriageworks.

Hair: Travis Balcke for

Hair look: “Fitting in with We Are Kindred, today is all about detail. Keeping soft femininity at the front and then strength and discipline at the back with a figure eight braid. That creates some discipline, clears the hair off the neck, then we have this soft texture through the crown which returns back again in the ponytail at the back. The hero product would have to be the VS Sassoon Diamond Wand, which we’ve used to create that 'It girl' wave.”

Make-up: Ania Milczarczyk for

Make-up look: “I wanted to play up the girl’s natural features. Nothing too crazy - just a cutesy twist on their natural look. Brows are kept as is, with a soft natural wash over the eyes. A little peach flush to the cheeks, with some freckles given to some of the girls.”

Nails: Karon McKendrick Taylor for

Nail look: “This show is a combination of four shades. We’re having a bit of fun with colour, because this collection is fun, it’s feminine, it’s flowy, it’s beautiful. We have four neutral shades used - Beyond The Dunes, Metropolis, I Scream For Icecream and Sensual Touch. All earthy tones in block colour. Just fun feminine colours.”
