I’ve travelled many times for fashion shoots to the beautiful islands of the Marquesas. Nothing brings me back to white sand beaches, gentle breezes, and perfect blue skies quicker than the vision of the Wahine's long flowing hair, complimented by their colorful flowing sarongs.
A true symbol of femininity, the Wahine conjure up dreams…Venus rising from the water, a siren’s haunting song, vast blue oceans and sultry days. Their seduction is personified by their hair - long, with a naturally crimped texture, and scented with the tiare flower. Sophisticated yet free, and with its distinctive light texture, the hair is alive and animated with the breeze of the islands.
