Toni&Guy’s Global Creative Director Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck talks us through her top three hair trends from the spring catwalks and how you can recreate them at home
‘Partings are really coming into their own this spring, with an emphasis on the unusual. While it’s an area of the hair that’s often overlooked, the parting is a great way to update your style if you don’t want to cut your hair. At the Jean-Pierre Braganza show, we introduced a dramatic, sexy side-part for a 60s coquettish vibe. But if you want to try something a little more left-of-field, the mussed-up Victoriana-grunge concept I created for Giles is rather special and really easy to recreate at home.’
1. Part hair at the crown into a v-shape 2. Secure into two ponytails 3. Drape side sections over ears 4. Add texture with label.m Sea Salt Spray, £13.75
‘We saw a lot of modern interpretations of well-loved classic styles on the spring catwalks. Paul Costelloe favoured a sexy Brigitte Bardot beehive, while at the Merit Award Winner’s show (designer Gyo Yuni Kimchoe), models sported dramatic Josephine Baker-esque finger-waves set with a generous helping of label.m Volume Mousse, £12.95, and label.m Hairspray, £12.25. As this trend is about seeing the past through fresh eyes, we were careful to contrast the retro waves with super-slick ponytails.’
1. Section t-zone 2. Secure remainder into a low ponytail 3. Set waves with mousse and clips 4. Spritz with label.m Hold & Gloss Spray, £12.25
‘I really love the idea of dressing the hair with different colours and textures to add an edge. At Ones To Watch, we experimented with stark white powder spray to accentuate the hairline – or you could try playing around with different colours with one of the label.m Powder Sprays, £9.95. But one of my favourite examples of the adornment trend to date is the glitter parting we did at PPQ. The overall effect was like a beautiful modern day tiara.’
1. Centre part locks 2. Straighten lengths 3. Apply a generous amount of
label.m Gel, £10.75, along the parting 4. Sprinkle glitter.
