Posted by Donnie Morissette on Saturday, July 26, 2014, In : News 

Okay, you don't have to do it RIGHT this minute, but you're already here, right? So you might as well.

These videos and articles range from funny to useful to simply quite interesting - but mostly funny. We all love a good BuzzFeed list, and if you're here on the HedRock blog, my guess is you love hair, too. So here's the definitive top 10 BuzzFeed hair lists, (in no particular order).


1. 17 Things You Don’t Say To A Woman With Short Hair



Newsflash: short hair can be stunning on a lady. You do...

Hair In The Campaigns: Bottega Veneta AW14

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Sunday, July 13, 2014, In : Trends 



I've been both itching and hesitant to post this all at the same time. One one hand, I have absolutely no idea who did this hair or the story behind it. On the other hand, it speaks for itself so much that the story can wait - for now.

The AW14 Bottega Veneta campaign features a bewigged Edie Campbell donning a geometric precision cut. Those last three words - I'll say them again; geometric precision cut - probably describe Tomas Maier's collection this season better than most.

Unlike the whims...

Behind The Cover: Victoria Beckham's Vogue Shoot

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Friday, July 11, 2014, In : News 



August's cover star for British Vogue is the one and only Victoria Beckham, in an shoot encompassing an unusually less-than-pristine setting for the lady, messing around in a garden and looking more laidback and playful that we're used to. But it works.

Last week, hairstylist Tina Outen spoke to Vogue.co.uk about her behind-the-scenes experience with Victoria, working with a crème de la crème creative team comprising of Vogue Fashion Director, Lucinda Chambers; powerhouse international makeu...

Paris Couture Week AW14: Valentino

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, July 10, 2014, In : Runway 



The theme at Valentino for this show was Pre-Raphelite. The mood was one of pared-back and effortless elegance, with a kind of virginal purity. Despite the billowing fabrics, draping and gladiator flats the girls still looked slender and statuesque. The natural colour palette circulated around whites and greens with the odd print or motif. All in all, it could be summed up as 'divinely pretty'.




Guido Palau for Redken made yet another appearance, this time creating a very classic but laid-back ...

Paris Couture Week AW14: Armani Privé

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, July 9, 2014, In : Runway 



Armani took a step away from the comfort of his usual grey-anchored palette to a much bolder black, white and red for this show. However, this bright colour infusion was strict, completely untainted by anything else from the spectrum, allowing him to focus on his strengths in craftsmanship. But there was a difference here, too - rather than the clean, sophisticated and grown-up aesthetic we're used to, Armani instead took a more youthful approach, playing with a melange of silhouettes and tex...

Paris Couture Week AW14: Chanel + Kristen Stewart's New 'Do

Posted by Simon Pinder on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, In : Runway 



The first thing guests attending the Chanel show noticed was its minimalist environment. Karl Lagerfeld usually has a spectacularly extravangant thematic set that is an extension of the collection's aesthetic. This time, however, a fireplace and large gilded mirror were the only adornments to an otherwise bright, airy space in which his collection could speak for itself. And volumes it spoke. 1930s and Baroque influences coupled with a palette of fiery and ash tones (save the odd pop of blue)...

Review: Schwarzkopf Got2b

Posted by Simon Pinder on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, In : Products 

I haven't bought a non-professional hair product in years, but since I'm not currently under employment I can't really spend on salon price tags. However, I did need a new hair product recently, having spent most of the past year using whatever was to hand in the salon and not actually using anything at home. So I decided now was the time to budget shop, get over my snobbery (at least for now) and buy off the high street.

I wanted something that would allow my hair to get some volume and textu...

Hair In The Campaigns: Balenciaga AW14

Posted by Simon Pinder on Monday, July 7, 2014, In : Trends 

This week a creative team shook the fashion world a little. Iconic model Gisele Bündchen appeared in the next-season Balenciaga campaign with an apparently shaved head. In fact, if you Google the topic and there are still news stories reporting that she has indeed been scalped, (even though she has since posted pictures to her Instagram with her locks intact).

Here's the campaign in question:







Artistic Director for Balenciaga Alexander Wang explained to Style.com that the haircut was created on...

Paris Couture Week AW14: Christian Dior

Posted by Simon Pinder on Monday, July 7, 2014, In : Runway 



In a show that really exemplifies Raf Simon's coming of age at Dior, a myriad of references were sewn together as seamlessly as the pieces they defined. The overall feeling was one of lightness; voluminous gowns and plenty of pale colours and delicate florals, shown in a circular, futuristic white space adorned with masses of white orchids. The occasional dark wool or exquisitely structured jacket kept everything grounded. It was immaculate.



It made sense, then, that the hair should be simple,...

Paris Couture Week AW14: Atelier Versace

Posted by Simon Pinder on Monday, July 7, 2014, In : Runway 



Versace kicked off this seasons couture with a remarkable show that was as bold as it was plush. Allegedly there was a 50's influence to it, but it was the bondage-meets-extravagance of the gowns shown above that hit me the most. All this set against a runway of purple fur with gold trim and J-Lo in the FROW made for something incredibly in-your-face cool.

Hair was provided by the masterful Guido Palau for Redken. Speaking about the look, he called it "very un-Donatella", but that of a "strong...

Why I Chose to Have No Job Rather than One at Supercuts

Posted by Simon Pinder on Saturday, July 5, 2014, In : News 



I recently became unemployed. I did what no professional should do and walked out in a temper, quitting on the spot and handing in no formal notice. It’s an additional faux pas to do this in an economic climate where unemployment is high and in an industry that’s turning out more skilled professionals than there are jobs available.

I’m a big believer, though, in doing something that means something, rather than doing it for the sake of it. I think that trying to be good at something yo...
