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.

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.
