Paris Fashion Week 2016: The Trends

paris fashion week aalto international 1 - Copy

For us February was all about fashion week, with the runways of London, New York and Milan awash with previews of what we’ll be wearing come autumn/ winter 2016. Rounding off what’s been an amazing season for style, now it’s Paris’ turn.

Paris Fashion Week is in full flow (ending on the 9 March) and we’re lucky enough to have our Creative Director front and centre. Kieron is part of the hair styling teams for some big names this season and we’ve got an exclusive backstage pass to bring you all the best styles from the shows.


On Tuesday 1 March, Kieron was working on the hair for Finnish designer AALTO International. The fittingly named Hellsinki collection is a creative amalgamation of urban youth culture and the traditional customs of the Sami people (an indigenous Finno-Urgric culture). Certainly a unique concept and the hair had to complement it perfectly. The models sported ultra long tresses and the styling was kept lived-in and undone for an earthy texture.

Here are Kieron’s top tips for creating the look:

STEP 1: Set hair in a centre-parting before working a volumising mousse (we rate EIMI Natural Volume) through the lengths of damp hair.

STEP 2: Blast dry with a hair dryer until hair is roughly three quarters dry.

STEP 3: Complete the blow dry using a large barrel brush to smooth down the hair.

STEP 4: Mist dry locks with a heat protect spray before tonging random sections of hair from about half-way down the length.

STEP 5: Once the curls have cooled, use a texturising dry shampoo like TIGI Bed Head Oh Beehive, spraying it through sections of hair and gently brushing it through – this will also help relax the curls for a more natural finish.

STEP 6: Finish with a spritz of hold spray like Sassoon Professional Motion Hold.
