RED CARPET HAIR: The MTV Movie Awards Top 10

Posted by Simon Pinder on Tuesday, April 16, 2013, In : Red Carpet 

Stars lined up a good variety of looks on the red carpet at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. Keep reading for the wearable, the wacky and the totally weird in my top 10 hair moments...

10. Holland Roden's super-simple perfection

I love this timeless look and it's so well-executed. Tucking the hair from the front hairline behind he ear and the rest down is extremely now. A great way to make what's seemingly nothing into a red carpet something.

9. Britanny Snow's blonde bob

This blonde is spot on for Bri...

The Return of Punk

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, In : Trends 

Punk is making another noisy comeback to the world of fashion.

The May editions of both Elle and Vogue feature editorials and accompanying retrospectives of the 70s movement and its influence on both fashion and social attitudes.

Punk, like "the new black" and 60s beehives and miniskirts, frequently re-enters the fashion domain every few years before being declared dead again. Underground, it lives on, with many DIY punk bands ...

Rihanna's Urban Style and Ombre Hair

Posted by Simon Pinder on Tuesday, April 9, 2013, In : Celebrity 

Rihanna rocked her urban street style during her LA day out yesterday.

Papped (above) applying her makeup at an LA Lakers game, she donned a hip-hop/metal mashup complete with dark lips and topped with a backward cap, her luxe tumbling waves loose beneath it. It was a particularly candid moment for RiRi as she enjoyed a courtside seat in a crowd that also included

But it was later that she showed every girl how it's done and transitioned effortlessly from day-to-night for an evening ...

Models Needed!

Posted by Simon Pinder on Sunday, April 7, 2013, In : HedRock Happenings 

I'm in need of models for a couple of competition entries.

One of these is for a colour makeover. I have ideas in mind so you'll need to have long hair and be willing to have a creative colour - hair modelling experience for this one is a plus! You'll need to be free for your makeover (no cost involved) and a photoshoot in the same week.

Other models needed over the next two weeks to pop into my salon and have their hair styled with ghd's. Again, longer hair is better, but this one I'll just be...

The Micro Fringe Is Still A Big Thing

Posted by Simon Pinder on Friday, April 5, 2013, In : Trends 

The images of model Flo Dron in ELLE's May issue punk shoot made me smile.

That's not from the shoot in question, but it's exactly how her hair looks. Look how tiny that fringe is, and how much she rocks it!

The micro fringe is not a new thing. Not at all. Pin-up star Bettie Page rocked the short but sweet look with a rolled version in the 50s, and screen stars Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Tatou's characters Cleopatra and Amelie both had tiny bobs featuring just as tiny fringes.

But the look resu...
