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: 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...

Four Products I Really Want To Get My Hands On!

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, January 15, 2014, In : Products 

Anyone who has come across me professionally will know that I'm an absolute hair product junkie. The problem is, the more of a junkie you become, the harder it is for the addiction to satisfy you. Put in plain English, my expectations are high when it comes to finding a particular product that really wows me to the point of saying "this is the best thing EVAAARR!"

Sometimes, though, even the concept is enough to get my blood pumping. Here are four products that I've never held but for various ...

#YHLA - Salleh's Perm

Posted by Simon Pinder on Tuesday, September 17, 2013, In : Your Hair Looks Amazing 
I've held the opinion for a couple of years now that the perm is ready for a comeback, and considering the bad reputation it's gained with the aftertaste of the 80s (despite being one of the best decades there ever was for personal style), that's an opinion often met with uncertainty and a slight edge of disdain.

So I had to stop myself from squealing with glee when friend and collaborator Salleh Sparrow revealed her tightly-coiked mop top. Completely adore it! And that made her the very first...

How To Revive a Tangled Hairpiece

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, August 28, 2013,

A few days ago a lovely lady Gemma came to me to get her hair put up for a black tie event. Now it's no secret that I love put-ups so I assured her she was in good hands. Gemma has a LOT of her own hair but brought in a clip-on hairpiece for an extra-polished finish, and these were the results:


However, a couple of days later Gemma revisited the salon while I was away because her hairpiece had become a bit tangled and frizzy and left it for me to revive, which I was more than happy to do. Hair...
