Darren and Jackie Ambrose headed up the hair team for the Central Saint Martins BA Fashion show creating cool, pool vibes with textured wet looks
In a showcase of phenomenal fashion across 134 collections, the Central Saint Martins BA Fashion course presented two shows at One Granary Square in London. D&J Ambrose duo Darren and Jackie led the hair team of 11 talented, young stylists, supported by L’Oréal Professionnel Paris.
Though the looks varied between collections, the slicked, wet look was one of a few standout styles from the catwalk. Opting for more of a straight-out-of-the-pool vibe, Darren spoke to us backstage about the direction and aim of the hair team to create some super sleek styles, and others to be created with more texture.
Get the look
Step one: Start by using L’Oréal Professionnel Paris Tecni.ART Pli to prep the hair.
Step two: Choose your parting and brush the hair back off the face.
Step three: Using a tint brush and bowl, mix L’Oréal Professionnel Paris Techni.ART Extreme Splash with a little bit of water to loosen up.
Step four: Brush this into the hair, keeping all strands back off the face.
Step five: Blend a small amount down through the lengths by combing through and tousling with your fingers.
Top tip: By adding a little bit of water to the L’Oréal Professionnel Paris Techni.ART Extreme Splash, you will get great longevity to achieve a cool, textured wet look.
L’Oréal Professionnel Paris also supports the graduating students by presenting an annual award, judged each year by a panel of fashion industry experts, invited by Central Saint Martins, who unanimously agreed on this year’s show-stopping winner.
