Go behind the scenes at Charleston Fashion Week

Posted: Updated:

The fashion is obviously the spotlight of Charleston Fashion Week, but no look walking the runway would be complete without the hair and makeup.

Ashley Brooke Perryman is the Director of Hair and Make-up for Charleston Fashion Week. She oversees 15 hair stylists and 15 make-up artists that are hand selected to be a part of the week long event. "I thought it would be really fun and interesting to have hair and make-up artists from locally and all over. It's the best talent around coming under one tent for a week to do some really amazing hair and make-up."

The designers are whittled down to 20 Emerging Designer applicants, the models narrowed down from hundreds who audition, so why not turn the behind the scenes tent into a challenge as well? Ashley started taking applicants three years ago and says the process has really added to the prestige. "Having the absolute best talent under the hair and make-up tent brings it to the very next level."

Hair and make-up are the finishing touches to many a designers vision. "It is so important because the designers are very visual and actually hair and make-up is the final puzzle piece to their design. It is so great for me and the team to see it come to life after planning for it for so long."

At a fashion show, the hair and make-up isn't the focus, but the perfect lip color or hair-do makes an outfit runway ready. "If people knew everything that went on (behind the scenes) it wouldn't be as magical, so for us it is worth the work to put in for everyone to be so excited to see these looks go down the runway."
