SUMMER COLOUR TRENDS - Platinum, Split-Dye, Hair Contouring and Candy Hues

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Wednesday, June 3, 2015, In : Trends 


With brighter days upon us once again, you're probably thinking of getting some ombré/balayage treatment to brighten up your locks and get you on trend.

If that is the case, stop what you're doing and install Instagram, because you seem to have missed the news somehow - that trend is now on its way out.

Here's what's kicking it off the table...



It all started a couple of months ago when platinum became an overnight must-have after Kim Kardashian and Jared Leto both revealed lightened locks at t...

Celebs Usher In a New Era

Posted by Donnie Morissette on Monday, March 9, 2015, In : Trends 

In the past week celebrities have decided to literally buck the trends we've all grown accustomed to achieving for the past decade. In short; long hair is out.

As a hairstylist, the number of times I've had a client or model whose hair needed to be coiffed into big, bouncy, shiny waves is practically uncountable. It got to a point in many a stylist's head that this was just accepted as the norm. Kim Kardashian and Cheryl Cole-Tweedy-Fernandez-Versini-Jones-Bloggs [sic] were die-hard reference...

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 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

STYLIST Trend On Trial: Rainbow Hair

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, February 19, 2014, In : Trends 

TREND ON TRIAL


I'm already up to my neck in Fashion Week and awards season, and I already buy every fashion magazine every month, so blogging and reading takes up a lot of my spare time, (not forgetting I also manage a salon full time). And yet, every week without fail, I find myself dashing around Birmingham mid-commute looking for a Stylist distributor, wondering if Evie, Sam and Anita (their beauty department) have explored the world of hair this week. One of the regular beauty features of ...

The Wet-Look Redhead - A Stylist Special

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, September 26, 2013, In : Trends 

This post isn't really about a single topic, but every now and then an issue of Stylist will be very hair-focused and this week's is one of those. There's a fabulous feature on redheads (famous ones, no less) and a Trend On Trial using the wet look seen on Prada's AW13 runway, (look out for the Hair In The Campaigns blog on that later this week).



So I decided to fuse the two and kill a few birds with one stone, by trying out the wet look on my own (unintentionally*) copper locks, then I'll twe...

Kim Kardashian Lets Ombré Live On

Posted by Simon Pinder on Wednesday, September 4, 2013, In : Celebrity 

Kim Kardashian stepped out last weekend with a new partner - a gorgeous high-contrast blonde ombré.



Ombré, balayage or dip-dye has been on trend - especially with celebrities - for a couple of years now. More and more of you are going into salons and asking for it in varying effects.

This particular look is incredibly executed, because her roots are very naturally dark and the ends very light, but despite the strong difference, the blend between the two is perfect and the hair is in immaculat...

RED CARPET REPORT: The Met Ball 2013

Posted by Simon Pinder on Thursday, May 9, 2013, In : Red Carpet 
Remember when I said punk was making a comeback? Well, one of the biggest fashion events on the annual calendar just RSVP'd the trend by making it the theme for 2013. The biggest stars were in attendance and I almost had a little heart attack over some of the sheer fabulousness of the hair on display. Brace yourselves... things are about to get good.

I'm sorting this by punk's definitions, of which it has many. Remember, make it your own!


1. Step outside of your box

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 ...

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...

More Celebs Join The Bright Hair Brigade

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

Rainbow hair hues seem to be an unstoppable force!



Dakota Fanning and Jenna Jameson are the latest to join the throng of celebrities sporting unconventional hair colours this year. They join Kerry Katona, Bella Cruise and a host of others rocking the trend.

Fanning was papped in New York City with freshly dip-dyed pick locks, a look she dabbled with back in January last year. Sheltered against the cold snap in layered casuals and knitwear, the Twilight star clearly enjoyed the look the first t...

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'...

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...
