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...

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...

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...

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...

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'...

Wire-wool Hair Sparks Racism Claims

Posted by Simon Pinder on Friday, March 22, 2013, In : News 

At Sao Paulo Fashion Week, a runway look has lit a fire beneath Facebook and Twitter users who have branded it 'racist and embarrassing'.



The look, created by designer Ronaldo Fraga for his SS13 collection, utilised wire wool to portray a faux-Afro effect. However, Brazilian social media users deemed it offensive and in poor taste in a country that has long suffered with racial imbalances.

One user who commented on an online news article recalled his past of his hair being compared to wire wool...

Dual Texture, Dual Opinions

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, March 21, 2013, In : Trends 

It's one of the hottest runway trends of 2013. ELLEUK.COM declares it 'back'. But what is dual-texture hair and will it actually catch on?

http://rebeccaminkoff.com/rmedit/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Dual-Texture.jpg

For the most part, this look combines sleek or wet-effect roots with drier, more textured lengths. Session stylist Guido, who worked on the Victoria Beckham S/S13 show, contrasted shine by using dry shampoo to make the back more disheveled. Nick Irwin and the TIGI artistic team used gel and hairspray separately and secured the look with grips to emphasise t...
