British Hairdressing Awards: The Collection
We’re excited to finally unveil our Creative Director Kieron Fowles’ collection for the British Hairdressing Awards 2015. We’re so proud that Kieron has been selected as a finalist for Midlands Hairdresser of the Year at the prestigious awards run by Hairdressers Journal.
The final takes place on Monday 23 November and we all have our fingers crossed to see Kieron win his category. We’ll keep you updated with his progress but in the meantime, take a look through his stunning collection…
This look was inspired by a Chanel campaign featuring sleek sides with a central run of hair. The cut is irregular with a choppy texture creating a Mohawk effect, bringing an up-to-date stamp on ’90s grunge. For the colour, Kieron chose a vibrant burnt mustard shade for the base, blushed into alternate placements of sunrise, butterscotch and fire hues.
A colourful rainbow hair trend from the catwalks of haute couture Paris Fashion Week AW15/16 inspired this style. Models walked the runways with precision bobs with plenty of height. Kieron has contrasted the sharp cut and texture with playful pops of colourbombing. The micro fringe was inspired by the latest catwalk trends to give the look a very avant garde feel.
This style features a statement fringe with a strong, blunt cut combined with a head-hugging perimeter and sides with an unexpected playful flick at the ends. The colour was inspired by a purple amethyst crystal and the different shades of purple projected where it catches the light.
This lived-in, distressed texture was influenced by the weathering of natural surfaces by the elements. The main inspiration here was rugged, rocky volcanic surfaces. For the colour, Kieron chose chalky powder blues paired with drifts of cobalt azure and admiral blues, blending into steel, stone and slate hues throughout the mid-lengths and ends.
This look is all about structure and placement. Apricot beige looks set to be a popular hair colour for 2016 and can be seen here throughout the mid-lengths and ends with a plummy peach blonde applied at the roots.
Inspired by the natural orange sandstone of sedimentary rock, this striking colour combines layers of apricot, vermilion and sunset. The cut is irregular with strong edges around the perimeter and styled with overlapped sections for a piecey finish.
This editorial style mixes a disconnected layers with that all-important micro fringe. The colour is an icy blast of powdered mint, silver and charcoal hues for a couture ice queen feel.
Building on the ice theme, this glacier-inspired style incorporates the increasingly popular trends for white and grey fashion hair. Kieron’s put a couture spin on the mainstream trend with icy depths and tones, teaming them with piecey texture for a build up of irregular movement for a fresh, glazed finish.
