Legendary English designer Thelma Madine teamed up with Liverpool hair salon Voodou to create a one-on-a-kind wedding dress entirely out of human hair.
Brides usually opt for shades of white when picking their wedding dress, but this didn’t stop Thelma Madine and Voodou hair stylist, Ryan Edwards from creating a gown only Lady Gaga would wear. In fact, the duo say they would be more than happy if the popular singer would choose to wear it on her next tour. “It’s a unique creation, just like her, and I think it would be a hair match made in heaven!” Madine said. Considering Gaga’s past wardrobe choices, they might get their wish…
The unique hair wedding dress was created from 250 meters of hair extensions, tens of thousands of individual hair wefts and different pieces of hair, 1,500 crystals and 12 underskirts. A team of eight people put in around 300 hours of work, over a period of 12 days, to complete the dress, but all the effort paid off when their creation was finally finished. “This was a chance for us to show our creatively and originality and it’s a fantastic feeling to see the finished product. It’s fair to say we’ll probably not see another dress like it for a very long time,” Ryan Edwards said. The hair wedding dress weighs just over 75 kilograms and is a size six.
