Creative HEAD has partnered with BaByliss PRO to challenge three of the most exciting next generation of hair talents – 2017 Most Wanted Session Stylist, Syd Hayes, The It List 2016 Fashionista, Issey Hyde, and The It List 2017 It Guy, Ky Wilson – to create hair looks they love. This week, it’s Syd’s turn. He’s already wowed us with his first look, the textured lob. This time round, he’s channelling that cool girl vibe… 


“This is cool girl hair – gel, glitter, fun and quirky. Easy!”

Prep is key to a high pony, so dampen down the hair and blast dry the roots with the BaByliss PRO ItaliaBRAVA hairdryer so they are all going in the direction of the high ponytail. The key areas to focus on are the nape of the neck and the hairline.

Session tip: use a dab of wax to get rid of any baby hairs while braiding.
