ART TEAM COLOUR SPECIALIST LIZZIE FOX SHARES THE KEY COLOUR TRENDS …

RETRO SEVENTIES

Spotted on many of the S/S15 runways, patchwork, psychedelic prints and abstract art look set to make a comeback. Abstract prints among a bold colour palette of electric blue, blood orange and black in contrasting shapes were key at Preen, while Derek Lam introduced a patchwork effect by creating panels of colour using teal, burgundy and purple. Burgundy was also seen in Gucci’s retro show, along with toffee, cream and brown tones applied globally and within a blending pattern. This season, I will enjoy mixing a variation of brown hues with contrasting copper and mahogany tones, with patchwork prints as my inspiration.

NUDE BLOSSOMS

The Spring/Summer 2015 season is set to showcase styles with soft and delicate hues. Haider Ackermann’s collection was serene and peaceful, with white, pink and lilac tones creating a ‘lighter than air’ feel. Free flowing and romantic, clean blondes will be influenced by blossom hues this season. Huishan Zhang coloured his models’ hair with a beautiful calming range of pastels, in shades of peach, pink, lemon and lilac and I will be using these hues as toners to give blondes an elegant finish this S/S15.

HARD EDGED

At the Sally Montague Hair Group we will be embracing dark, structural colours this season, inspired by Givenchy, which showcased an edgy, romantic collection, with monochrome making a bold statement and enhancing the strong lines of the tailored pieces. Strong geometric prints created a sharp show at Ellie Saab, with a colour palette ranging from black, blue and orange. Lanvin displayed sophisticated tailoring with rough edges, strong and A-lined shapes. The colour navy dominated the show, which I think will be gorgeous within hair colour this season, helping to create sharp lines with a dark base.

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.

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.

MONDRIAN

SHARE
 

IN ANTICIPATION OF OUR UPCOMING SM(ART) TEAM PHOTO-SHOOT WE VISITED TATE LIVERPOOL FOR THE MONDRIAN AND HIS STUDIOS EXHIBIT.

Dutch painter Piet Mondrian is renowned as one of the most important contributors to the development of abstraction at the beginning of the 20th century, and his stunning and influential works are recognised by everyone from art lovers to students of architecture and graphic design.

We chose to focus on this exhibition because the infamous Compositions with Yellow, Blue and Red lend themselves to being interpreted into a hair colour technique. From parallel lines to block colour placement, our colour specialists are now devising techniques that will take inspiration from the exhibition and translate it into a fashion-forward but commercial colour technique for our salon group.
