Get runway-ready hair
If you are in awe at how models don the fabulous hairstyles while they strut on the runway, then you’re in for a good read. We’ve recently unveiled the key A/W season trends from the recent collaboration of Toni&Guy as official hair care sponsor to London Fashion Week 2010, and we’ll share this inside information with you nonetheless.
What is more interesting to note is that the much-sought-after catwalk hairstyle trade secrets are made easier by Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck, Global Creative Director for the Toni&Guy group is the daughter of co-founder Toni Mascolo OBE. With her 22 years of experience in hair industry, she devised simple steps that any woman can follow, paving the way for stunning hair even out of the runway. Read on and explore the crowning glory tips that will help you shine through.
The Trend: Dishevelled Texture
The most predominant trend of the week – vintage techniques collide with modern textures for a retro approach to volumous hair as seen at Giles.
Get the look: “Prepare the hair with Toni&Guy Boost-It Mousse and blast dry. This will also give added volume and a ubiquitous sexy texture. Starting at the front hair line, hair is backcombed away from the face, section by section throughout, to create serious volume with a dusty texture. Sweep back the hair and manipulate the ends into a French pleat. Finish with Toni&Guy Firm Hold Hairspray for added hold with movement.”
The trend: Sleek, Straight, Sculpted
Another key trend for this season is hair that is cleverly sculpted and sleek–the ultimate combination for a striking look.
Get the look: “Spritz the hair with Toni&Guy Iron-It Heat Defence Spray to counteract the effects of heat assisted styling. Take a small section on either side of the head and pull back with maximum tension and secure into a discreet ponytail just below the crown – working with Toni&Guy Straight and Smoothing Balm for a really clean texture. Straighten the length of the hair until it sits perfectly flat behind the shoulders and finish with a light mist of Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray to maximise shine.”
The trend: Curls, waves and kinks
A strong presence was felt for gorgeously natural and organic hair – with inspirations of wind-swept texture, youthfulness and a very lived-in tousled essence as seen at Doii.
Get the look: “This is easily achieved by preparing the hair with Toni&Guy Beach Curl Spray and then scrunching a ‘cocktail’ of Toni&Guy Soft Curl Cream and Toni&Guy Tame-It Serum through towel dried hair. Tong the hair in large sections, then gently break up and loosen the curls with your hands. Finish off with a spritz of Toni&Guy Hairspray for hold.”
