Julija Ritčik, 4Fun lead singer, is planning her appearance on the stage of the Hartwall arena on May 12. The best stylist and hair stylist in Lithuania have been hired to help Julija create her new image. Julija has spoken about the key patterns and style that will help 4Fun achieve the best result possible
4Fun have decided to go for elegance and class in Helsinki. The whole group's appearance will be in classic black and white tones, something they feel becomes their style and song. There could be a couple of catchy details for contrast but the overall look will be a classy one. Well-known Lithuanian designers Aleksandras Progrebnojus and Vida Simanavičiūtė will design Julija's clothes for the final. Julija will be wearing black trousers as a dress is not something she would feel comfortable in. Accessories will also play an important role. Al. Progrebnojus stated " I am certain that the average European is probably scared with what is going on in Eurovision", probably referring to some of the extreme outfits we have seen at times on stage. "I believe that there are a lot of intelligent people who watch the contest, people that understand that it is about the music, not about the circus. If that's true, then 4Fun have a chance to win."
Julija looks completely different, almost unrecognisable, in her new hairstyle (pictured above). Expert Lithuanian hairstylist Karina Leontjeva has given Julija the same hairstyle and color she had when she was 14 years old. "It makes me feel younger says Julija".
4Fun will be performing 9th in the Eurovision Song Contest Final between a semi final qualifier and Greece.
