The RADIO Hair Artistic Team has created a collection of individual cuts and colours that are salon-friendly yet inspiring for the stylist – simplicity with an editorial twist

At the industrial-chic space of RADIO Hair Salon in Kings Cross, you never know what you might find. Yes, it’s a hair and beauty salon, but move the beauty table and you have a studio space to shoot, while the walls serve as a gallery space for art (and that’s a barista we spot!). When inspiration strikes, it’s pretty quick for the RADIO Hair Artistic Team to get their vision in front of a photographer… So here is French Touch, which takes inspiration from the effortless style of Parisian women. Using the RADIO Hair Mapping Guide developed for the salon’s four brand new education courses, these techniques are concise and executed with ease. The haircuts mix strong shapes with texturising techniques, using channel cutting and deep point cutting. The colours present bold placement with freehand detail to create a vivid impact with an effortless approach. “Redken Chromatics multi-dimensional hair colour allows us to produce a natural finish with incredible depth,” explains Corrado Tevere, RADIO Hair Salons’ co-founder, “and Shades EQ Gloss allows us to enhance the tone and definition for high shine.”
