The show: PPQ
The hair: Darren Ambrose for Wella Professionals
The colour: Issie Churcher and Claire Chell
The inspiration: Complementing PPQ’s Spanish Fiesta-inspired collection, Darren created textured curls and waves to frame the face, with Linda Evangelista a key inspiration.
The details: For the colour, Issie and Claire used Blondor FREELIGHTS and ILLUMINA COLOR, both by Wella Professionals, to create delicate hues of soft blondes and peach sorbet shades. Using the hair contouring technique, the colour was applied in such a way so as to enhance the model’s skin tone and eye colour, and define her facial framework.To recreate the styling, take a half section from the ear to ear and tie this into a ponytail. Tie the remaining hair at the back into a ponytail below the first one, then wave or curl the mid lengths to ends. Next, take the top ponytail, twist then flip forward to front of face. Pin tight to the head, creating the illusion of a fringe. Twist the second ponytail in the same way, but underneath to create the same crop and texture around the hair line. Pin to the head, creating a head-hugging, cropped look. Finish by running EIMI Shape Me and EIMI Glam Mist through the front and back to achieve a wet, glossy finish.
The products: EIMI Shape Me and EIMI Glam Mist, both by Wella Professionals.
