OUR AWARD-WINNING ART TEAM LAUNCHES ITS LATEST COLLECTION: ATELIER

Taking inspiration from the renowned Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian, our latest collection took inspiration from the ‘Compositions with Yellow, Blue and Red’ series showcased at the Mondrian and his Studios exhibition at TATE Liverpool.

We took initial inspiration from the geometric shapes and block colour placement, before translating this for a fashion forward, but commercial collection, using contrasting textures, parallel sectioning patterns and structured, sleek styling. Angel Montague-Sayers

LIZZIE FOX IS AWARDED SECOND PLACE AT THE SHU UEMURA 2014 MUSE IMAGE AWARDS

Sally Montague Hair Group Art Team Colour Specialist and Sadler Gate Salon Manager, Lizzie Fox, celebrated being awarded second place earlier this year at the exclusive Shu Uemura Art of Hair photoshoot at the luxury haircare brand’s 2014 Muse Image Awards.

The awards, which were launched last year, are sponsored by Tribute Magazine – the high-end artistic magazine for hairdressers – and aim to give visibility to stylists with vision and talent. Entrants were invited to submit an image of an avant-garde female in order to win a place on a regional shoot where they could create an avant-garde look of their own.

MY INSPIRATION, LIZZIE FOX

My initial inspiration for the look came from the Dolce & Gabbana mosaic print and the Sicilian influence which is at the forefront of all their iconic collections. I was especially drawn towards the royal pose and crown, and wanted to create my own more abstract version within the hair, without using any ornaments. I didn’t want to create anything too structured and so I started looking into different fabrics and architecture to see how I could develop my look. I found the Revolution tower building in Panama and this influenced the twists within the crown. I also wanted to create a contrast between the regal and the rough, looking at texture of rope helped me define the texture with the hair. To create my look I used Shu Uemura Art of Hair Tasai cream and Liquid Fabric which gave great texture and a malleable hold.

LIZZIE FOX, ART TEAM COLOUR SPECIALIST AND SADLER GATE SALON MANAGER SHARES HER A/W14 COLOUR TRENDS

ENCHANTMENT

Themes of wildly imaginative fairytales contrasting with a ghostly darkness appeared on the catwalk this season. At Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander McQueen, models embodied ethereal elegance. This trend would suit brunettes and darker bases, with palettes ranging from blacks, mauves, burgundy and smoky greys whereas a global hair colour portrayed depth with romantic shine at David Koma.

At Ellie Saab the runways were awash with ombré locks, ranging from burgundy, nude, blueberry and black into raspberry, creating a multitude of tones. At Alberta Ferretti, indigo, ocean blue hues, tarnished copper shades and embellished metallics shone through the darkness highlighting the texture of the hair. I fell in love with the dark ombré technique, which I will recreate using deep raspberry and copper shades, either globally or partially.

Paris Fashion Elie Saab

PRINTS CHARMING

Art and print were very popular throughout the A/W14 collections. Styles ranged from Renaissance to Art Deco, incorporating reds, maroons, mustards and browns to create warm, beautiful colour combinations. A similar colour palette was seen at Prada and Louis Vuitton, where edges and panels of colour were placed along chevrons in an Art Deco fashion with a modern twist.

Rainbows were seen in a geo-print at Clover Canyon, giving brightness to this trend, having taken inspiration from stained glass windows. Similarly, a watercolour effect was seen at Burberry Prorsum, fading brush strokes within loose swirling chiffon, gently smudging colours together. I’ll enjoy playing around with different shapes and placement in the salon and trying out the watercolour effect on hair.

BURBERRY-PRORSUM-AW14-08

BACK TO EARTH

Soft palettes and earthy animal tones also crossed the catwalk this season. Subdued sage green, dusty pink and duck egg blue were seen at Gucci, while Gareth Pugh combined cream, white and embellished metallic in his sculptural and surreal collection, forecasting fresh and clean blondes with a hint of soft colour.

At Givenchy, a large combination palette was portrayed through python, leopard prints and butterfly wings, using a rich biscuit and toffee base, blended with spearmint, beige and primrose. The collection continued into pale apricot and chocolate hues. I’ll be using very icy and creamy toners on blondes to ensure shine and diluted tones to create the different hues of apricot, mocha and beige.

THE BEAUTY FLOOR

OUR VERY OWN ‘BEAUTY FLOOR’ IS NOW OPEN AT THE EVER EXPANDING BELPER SALON

Since opening almost 15 years ago, Belper has undergone four extensions, now spanning a spacious 5,000 sq ft across two buildings, fusing a contemporary hairdressing and colour specialist salon and newly launched beauty floor alongside a large lifestyle store offering haircare products, accessories and jewellery. The new first floor ESPA beauty area, which boasts three state-of-the-art treatment rooms and a Make Up by HD Brows makeover and retail space, was unveiled In October 2014.

We have invested heavily in the Belper salon over the years as it continues to be popular with residents in Belper and beyond. Our recent addition of the relaxing beauty area on the first floor acts as a sanctuary for clients to get some respite from the busy salon downstairs. We are thrilled with the ESPA treatment rooms and dedicated Make Up by HD Brows retail space and hope they will be enjoyed by our clients, both old and new.

TOPSHOP SS15

SALLY MONTAGUE HAIR GROUP AT LONDON FASHION WEEK, TOPSHOP UNIQUE, SPRING SUMMER 2015.

Two Sally Montague Hair Group Art Team members, Deesh Dhindsa and Hannah Cobb, from the Duffield and The Old Hall salons respectively, proved their crafting credentials when they were invited to assist L’Oréal Professionnel backstage at the highly anticipated Topshop Unique show at this season’s London Fashion Week

Held at the Topshop Show Space, London, the dynamic duo, headed up by hairdressing hero, Anthony Turner for L’Oréal Professionnel, crafted styles to complement the SS15 collection.

The show took inspiration from historical looks worn in British coastal towns, opening with an array of sporty slogan-printed jumpers teamed with plain pencil skirts, frivolous girly frills, stripes and sparkles. Evening wear was delicate and sheer with 20s inspired beading and ruffled hemlines, once seen skimming the floors of Blackpool’s ballrooms.

GET THE LOOK

Following a light spray of Tecni.ART Pli, Wild Stylers Beach Wave was applied with fingers to create a fluffy, rolled-in texture throughout the lengths. The hair was then loosely parted and swept back, before being tucked behind the ears and Fresh Dust added to mattify. The sporty low side-part and a toughened-up, unkempt texture made matte with Tecni.ART Texture Dust dry shampoo emerged into the spotlight of a show that captured the international headlines thanks to top models taking their turn on the runway.
