Watching the runway shows, one of Afterpay Australian Fashion Week’s shows to watch, the Mariam Seddiq runways show failed to disappoint with a bolt of colour, return of neoprene and one courageous bridal gown.
The hair styling for this fashion show took inspiration from the backstage at the fashion show itself, with Madison Voloshin and Davroe styling creating looks complementing structured tailoring, fluid drapery and intriguing hand embellishment with a four way braid.
DAVROE Ambassador Madison Voloshin takes us behind the looks on the Runway in our exclusive interview.
D: CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE TOP-LINE HAIR DIRECTION FOR THE MARIAM SEDDIQ SHOW?
Madison: Choosing to challenge the traditional beauty standards, Mariam hand-selected the models walking in her show with one thing in mind – Diversity. Selecting models of different races, nationalities, and sizes, we aspired to capture a look that best reflected Mariam’s beliefs about choosing a hairstyle to complement.
Praised for its signature forms and architectural silhouettes, Collection Cerulean is a kaleidoscopic collection of sculptural prêt-à-couture couture that is synonymous with Mariam Seddiq – a personal expression of her own culture and experiences. Highlighting structured Tailoring, fluid drapery and masterful hand embellishment, ‘a ‘four way’ braid was the perfect complement to the new collection – ‘elegant, artful, real’.
D: WHAT HERO PRODUCTS ARE BEING USED TO PREP THE HAIR?
Madison: As is key with most hairstyles, prepping your hair before you braid it is vital. Brushing plays an integral part in this process, conditioning the hair for styling. As we created these subtle yet intrinsic braids on a range of hairstyles, a Mason Pearson brush was a must-have for the Davroe styling team. Utilising boar bristle and nylon tufts, the Mason Pearson brush is perfect for tackling both normal hair and thick, harder to manage hair.
D: AS FOR THE HAIR ITSELF, CAN YOU TALK THROUGH EACH STEP AND EACH PRODUCT YOU’VE USED?
Madison: All Davroe products starting with Davroe BVT foam is typically used to add volume, but in this case, we used it to flatten down the hair and add a subtle clean shine. When plating the hair, we used Davroe FORMATION to hold the hair together and added the same Davroe Brilliance Shine Mist. Davroe Shine Mist was also used for the baby hairs at the front to give it a windswept look. And finished off with Davroe COMPLETE hairspray.

D: WHAT’S THE SECRET TO NAILING A DETAILED BRAID?
Madison: The styling options are endless when it comes to braids. However, to create a perfect braid, good products and practice are essential! For more detailed and complicated braids, like the round plat, we created for Mariam Seddiq, finding a friend to help you manage the strands and pull the hair tight is important! Four strands of hair can get messy otherwise!
D: ANY TOP TIPS FOR GETTING THE LOOK AT HOME?
Madison: A braided hairstyle is a simple, easy way to let your creativity shine through at home! Whether you are using your own natural locks, adding extensions, or mixing it up with a style like the four-way, braids are low maintenance, long-lasting and super easy to replicate! Best of all, they are a wash day style!
Something to remember, that while it may seem working with fresh, clean hair would be the way to go, braiding works better in dirty hair! The added grease from day-old hair helps to hold the look in place.DAVROE Ambassador – Madison Voloshin
Before you get to braiding, there are four key items you need: a mirror, a comb, styling products and a toothbrush – for those pesky baby hairs!
- Prep your hair
- Pull hair into style – high or low ponytail
- Part hair into sections
- Spilt part into three pieces
- Begin braiding.
- Repeat until all your sections are beautiful, thick braid.
