RED CARPET REPORT: The MTV Movie Awards 2015

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, In : Red Carpet 

This years MTV Movie Awards red carpet was a plethora of eclectic style that did not disappoint. Here's a rundown of my favourite moments...


Hailee Steinfeld and Maia Mitchell keep it simple

There once was a time when the slightest sniff of an awards invite would have celebs heating up their curling tongs and reaching for the extra-hold lacquer. But the 2010s have lightly ushered in a return to simplicity, and these ladies embody that simplicity perfectly.

Interestingly, both have opted for cent...

NEON CIRCUS by Voltage Noir

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Wednesday, March 11, 2015, In : HedRock Happenings 

I recently collaborated on a couple of shoots promoting up-and-coming brand Voltage Noir. I generally did some minimal hair housekeeping and some makeup as well as lending some expertise from photoshoot experience, but it was a pleasure to work alongside some amazing fresh talent. Have a look at the images below and find out more about Voltage Noir after the jump.

A-Z Of A Generation by i-D Online

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Tuesday, March 10, 2015, In : HedRock Happenings 

In this new video directed by Willy Vanderperre, hairstylist Anthony Turner looks at the diversity of London's up-and-coming style from fabulous freaks across the realms of goth, drag and beatniks.

Not only is this an insight into the amazing grassroots style of my favourite city, but it features yours truly and a few of my close friends too. Check out the video and description below.

(I'm 'V', by the way!)




Which way to the party? Directed by Willy Vanderperre, i-D’s latest alphabet soup mixes...

RED CARPET REPORT: The Grammy Awards 2015

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Tuesday, February 10, 2015, In : Red Carpet 

Compiling this one really took it out of me! There was no shortage of notable 'dos at this years Grammys. Join me on the red carpet for the highs, the lows and the plain bizarre.

Everybody's talking about... Iggy Azalea's statement braids





As a hairstylist, I can assure you that this takes some skill and patience. I love it! It has certainly garnered the most attention of the Grammys hair parade. (Well, almost. There's one ostentatious duo that certainly took the poll position, which you'll see ...

RED CARPET REPORT: The BAFTAs 2015

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Monday, February 9, 2015, In : Red Carpet 

Despite the rather more conspicuous Grammys happening across the pond, this years BAFTA Awards remained a glitzy and star-studded event. Here's a run-down of the hair trends we saw on the red carpet...


The outcome as predicted - side-swept glamour!

If you missed my red carpet season predictions (see it here), easily the most obvious trend for the season across the couture runways and the red carpet is an easy asymmetry, achieved by pushing back thew hair on one side:


Amy Adams


Charlotte Riley

RED CARPET 2015 PREDICTIONS

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Friday, February 6, 2015, In : Red Carpet 

Awards season is upon us (okay, I missed the Golden Globes ...oops... moving on). For the first time this year, I've decided to have a crack at making some red carpet hair predictions. Ahead of the BAFTAs and Grammys on Sunday, the couture runways have barely cooled down and celebs are tracking down their frocks as we speak. But will their hair go hand in hand with their gowns? Here are the most likely things to appear at the ceremonies...


1. Side-swept


Atelier Versace


Elie Saab


Jean Paul Gaultie...

Hair In The Campaigns: Marc Cain SS15

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Tuesday, February 3, 2015, In : Trends 

I only really do a few of these each season. It's kind of spurred by that excitement in the February/September issues of seeing sparkling new campaigns, and I'll see some hairstyle that peaks my interest. Last season it was Lindsey Wixson's auburn crop. This season, it's a freshman HITC appearance for Marc Cain.



Cain is a name I've seen around in the monthlies and certainly has international appeal, but shows in Berlin rather than one of the four fashion capitals and doesn't get written up by ...

RED CARPET REPORT: The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Wednesday, August 27, 2014, In : Red Carpet 

The glitz, the glamour... this years Emmys red carpet was a wonderfully sparkling affair with wonderful, well-coiffed hair!

Here's my top 10 favourites, (in no particular order).

Kelly Osbourne's mohawk



This girl seriously knows how to give us variety. Over the past few times I've blogged her red carpet looks, the only thing that seems to stay constant is that signature lilac hue. This time she flaunted a freshly-shorn mohawk and the fairly recent 'stories' tattoo. This was fabulously femmed-up ...

Hair In The Campaigns: Bimba y Lola AW14

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Thursday, August 7, 2014, In : Trends 

Well, I must admit I've never heard of Bimba y Lola until this season. So really, this is mostly about the visual...







Okay, so it's pretty much completely about the visual. I had to include this in my HITC series this season because there is a whole lotta hair going on there! This pelo largo, along with the makeup, came from the talented hands of successful Spanish stylist Pablo Iglesias.

If it seems a little weird and creepy, that's because this season's offerings from the brand are based on a ...

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...

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)...

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...

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW14: Day 4

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, February 20, 2014, In : Runway 

Burberry Prorsum


Christopher Bailey, newly-appointed CEO at Burberry, presented a very loosened-up brand aesthetic inspired by the Bloomsbury group, an early 20th Century collective of writers, artists and philosophers. The collection had a fairly nomadic feeling in spite of it's very British influence, with combinations of lace slip dresses and thick woolen wraps and shawls, (including the finale worn by Cara Delevigne, personalised with her own monogram). The bags and shoes were also bespoke...

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW14: Day 3

Posted by Simon Pinder on Tuesday, February 18, 2014, In : Runway 

Temperley London



Alice Temperley showed a feminine but somewhat tough collection, integrating florals and a pretty and light colour palette with structured pieces and heavier textiles, including some micro-quilted gowns, (which is actually rather practical for winter). The good dose of black and net-effect mesh also gave things a slightly gothic twist. The quirky powerful-yet-feminine attitude inspired Moroccanoil's Malcolm Edwards to create a hairstyle based on rich, bohemian girls. He put te...

RED CARPET REPORT: The BAFTAs 2014

Posted by Simon Pinder on Monday, February 17, 2014, In : Red Carpet 

It's red carpet time again! This week we're on our own turf, with the BAFTAs and Brits within days of each other! Here's the 10 best looks from last night.


Michelle Rodriguez

A lovely beachy wave, but does it really go with that Emilio de la Morena dress? Not really... her hair says 'laid back' but that leatherette bodice is anything but. Of the two, I prefer the dress, so a little more polished on the hair would have been better!




Gillian Anderson

The low-slung loose pony is all over London Fashi...

TONI&GUY® Hair Meet Wardrobe™ Forms Partnership With Marchesa

Posted by Simon Pinder on Sunday, February 16, 2014, In : News 



TONI&GUY® Hair Meet Wardrobe™, the backstage fashion-specialised venture of the hairdressing giant, has announced a partnership with Marchesa as it celebrates 10 years of glamorous evening wear and gowns.





Working together for the first time at New York Fashion Week for AW14, a team headed up by Hair Meet Wardrobe™ Global Ambassador Mark Hampton created two looks for the show - a diffused bun and a slick scalp-braid with poker straight lengths.

Keren Craig, co-founder of Marchesa spoke of t...

LONDON FASHION WEEK AW14: Day 1

Posted by Simon Pinder on Sunday, February 16, 2014, In : Runway 

Bora Aksu



Day one of London Fashion Week turned out all kinds of hairstyles, and my first comes from Bora Aksu. Aksu's show was influenced by the simpler, quieter side of Turkish life in a somewhat summery collection for an autumn/winter season. The colour palette - white, powdery blues and yellows, navy and hot pink - was a reflection of sandy beaches, fishing boats and sun-faded facades, on a mixture of crocheted hand-woven fabrics interspersed with light, sheer touches. A slight stern-ness ...

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK AW14: Marc Jacobs Special

Posted by Simon Pinder on Saturday, February 15, 2014, In : Runway 

I was originally going to cover the entirety of the last day of NYFW, but the hair wasn't that exciting, and the excitement for the Marc Jacobs show kind of eclisped everything else that happened, (a feeling I'm sure wasn't exclusive to me).

It has now been 6 months since Jacobs showed his collection for this line on the bombed-out beach. 6 months since his final collection for his diffusion line, Marc by Marc Jacobs. And, of course, 6 months since his final bow at Louis Vuitton after sixteen ...

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK AW14: Day 7

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, February 13, 2014, In : Runway 

Nanette Lepore



If there was ever a line of workwear disigned for the more bohemian of tasted, this is it. Lepore presented wool, fur and floaty lace, accented here and there with bright plaid prints and beading, all in an array of greys, burgundys, pinks and purples. Separates and more tailored pieces were integrated with flaty dresses and lighter fabrics by adding shape with strong belts. The two hair looks, created by James Pecis for Alterna, were a reflection of this class-meets-relaxed app...

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK AW14: Day 6

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, February 13, 2014, In : Runway 

Marc by Marc Jacobs


This is an important season for Marc Jacobs. He presented his last show at Louis Vuitton last season, and this MBMJ (as it will henceforth be known) was the first to be designed by British duo Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier, overseen by Jacobs himself from the FROW. This leaves him only his main 'Marc Jacobs' line as sole creative director, and all of his energy, talent and love will be put into it (watch this space). This was a fascinating and bold collection, alternatin...

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK AW14: Day 5

Posted by Simon Pinder on Tuesday, February 11, 2014, In : Runway 

Carolina Herrera


In a somewhat daring - and rather wide-reaching - collection for Hererra, the pivotal point seemed to be a play on geometrics. Her fine elegance was in there, too, but tweaked to a bolder note. The influences seemed to hearken at the European/Asian border, with a seemingly Ancient Egyptian colour/print inspiration and the odd Turkish-fez-type hats. (When I say "odd" I mean it both in the senses of 'sporadic' and 'unusual'). Mostly, though, the collection played with forms and ...

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK AW14: Day 4

Posted by Simon Pinder on Tuesday, February 11, 2014, In : Runway 

Thakoon




Thakoon's collection was influenced by the South American region of Patagonia, which makes sense for an autumn/winter collection, as it allowed the designer to freely play with layering - and not without some interesting results, including a lot of outerwear and a good array of turtleneck cape-cum-sweaters. The colour palette was bright and appealing, alternating royal blue and fuchsia with fiery oranges and yellows and the odd bit of racing green. The hair was an unusual choice of dua...

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK AW14: DAY 3

Posted by Simon Pinder on Monday, February 10, 2014, In : Runway 

Alexander Wang



I can barely contain my excitement. Don't get me wrong, despite wanting to hold a grudge against Mr Wang for stepping into the too-warm shoes of Nicolas Ghesquiere at Balenciaga, I loved his laser-cut eponymous motifs last season, but with all the achromatics he's been throwing about for the last year, this collection in itself was magnificently refreshing. Bold colours, a futuristic feel and statement piece after statement piece - a collection that will most likely make a magaz...

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK AW14: Day 2

Posted by Simon Pinder on Saturday, February 8, 2014, In : Runway 

Jason Wu




The mood at Jason Wu was serious. Strict, fitted tailoring, high collars and a steely, demure palette; all features that could have had a very androgynous effect were it not for the exquisite femininity it was presented with. Delicate fabrics like sheer lace and reflective satin were offset against the occasional pop of tough leather. The hair, too, carried this approach - structured quiffs at the front flowing seamlessly into carefree, head-hugging, pin-up texture at the back. The ef...

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK AW14 - Day 1

Posted by Simon Pinder on Saturday, February 8, 2014, In : Runway 

I promised I'd be back into blogging full-swing for Fashion Weeks, and owing to the fact that I haven't knocked out a real PDF Trend Report for about three seasons, I'm going to do one blog per day on this, showing the best looks from the best shows. I'm a couple of days behind at the moment and will play catch-up at some point, but for now, here's NYFW's debut shows from Thursday. Enjoy!

Nicholas K's collection this year was direct, deliberate and made a statement. There was a disti...

Couture Hair at the Schiaparelli Revival

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, January 23, 2014, In : Runway 

Many things struggle to be iconic in the fast and competitive world of fashion, so it takes a lot of force to make a real impact. Say, the kind of force that comes with taking the creative director from Rochas, putting him at the helm of a house bearing the name of one of the most influential designers that ever lived, and presenting the comeback collection after 60 dormant years at Paris Haute Couture. No mean feat.

And when you're on a knife edge like that, you have to pull out all the stops...

Hair In The Campaigns: Balenciaga AW13

Posted by Simon Pinder on Sunday, September 22, 2013, In : Trends 

This is a bittersweet one for me - the first Balenciaga collection following Nicolas Ghesquière's departure and replacement with Alexander Wang. I adored Ghesquière's vision, his exquisite eye for style always excited me, so I was a little dubious when Wang was named his successor. That said, the collection this season is immensely good. It settles somewhere in the region of austere and luxurious - almost matronly. And then, the campaign...

Hair In The Campaigns: Tom Ford AW13

Posted by Simon Pinder on Sunday, September 22, 2013, In : Trends 

If you're wondering who Tom Ford is, you're probably a fairly recent inductee to the fashion world like myself. He hasn't shown on a runway for seven years, mostly due to his view of the whole show scene as a rat-race circus. The only thing forcing his work back under the spotlight is his own brand's magnitude, which kinda gives the impression that the rebellion thing works.



And rebellion this is, but in a different way to the habit of the season. Whereas other designers put out tartans, leath...

Hair In The Campaigns: Louis Vuitton AW13

Posted by Simon Pinder on Friday, September 20, 2013, In : Trends 

Here's a double feature. Louis Vuitton always closely match their print ads to their runway, and this season is no exception, but the have an additional campaign featuring Michelle Williams to sell a particular bag.





They almost seem to be giving the option of dual identity. On one hand, there's the boudoir runway look, sultry and shadowed, echoing the hotel hallway we first saw the collection gliding through back in February. This campaign features the same cropped black wigs that transformed ...

Hair In The Campaigns: Lanvin AW13

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, September 19, 2013, In : Trends 

The second in my Hair in the Campaigns featurette (and last before my busy little head hits the pillow for today) comes from Lanvin, whose slogan accessories have become a staple feature in editorials showcasing the season's free-spirited, rebellious side. So this image comes as no surprise...



O hai afro!

The hair for Lanvin's print ads was styled by session legend Guido Palau, and I chose the above image to exemplify the series because of its amplified drama and equally amplified texture. I do...

Hair In The Campaigns: Versace AW13

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, September 19, 2013, In : Trends 

'Hair in the Campaigns' is a featurette I'll be doing in the absence of this season's runway reports. You might not get fully-studied trends but you do get some gorgeous imagery!

We start with Versace. Why? Kate Moss is why. She wasn't the only model in the shoot but her hair looks staggeringly good...




Yes, you're seeing it right. That is a gorgeous auburn-tinged brunette shade in place of the flowing golden waves we saw in her Kérastase campaign earlier in the year. Known mostly for her dishe...

How To Wear: Spring/Summer 2013

Posted by Simon Pinder on Monday, March 25, 2013, In : Trends 

There's two things to consider when doing your hair to work with the season's fashion. One, what are designers telling you to wear? And two, what are the fashion week session stylists telling you to do with your hair? And make no mistake, following fashion and hair trends that fall in the same season will NOT be a guaranteed recipe for success. Make that your mantra.

So, how do you work it?

Well, there are some simple rules that will govern every occasion you match your hair to your outfit. We'...
