For SS14, Todd Lynn was inspired by the depiction of an anarchic youth movement within Wiliam S. Burroughs' novel "The Wild Boys." With a collection that never backs down, he wanted hair that was just as rebellious. Mark Hampton, Global Hair Ambassador for TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe, created a pulled-back shape of the hair echoes a ponytail forgotten - hair textured is pulled-out and roughed-up, with a hint of rebellious shine.
Matthew Williamson wanted simple yet glamorous hair for his SS14 runway show, so Mark Hampton, Global Hair Ambassador for TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe, created a hair look with a 70s jetsetter vibe, with glossy locks and a gently teased crown.
"Matthew's hair look is always very natural, but the Matthew Williamson woman is always chic with a hint of glamour. The 70s style blown-out look that we've done this season has an effortlessly polished beauty to it," said Mark.
The hair look for the Vivienne Westwood Red Label SS14 Collection was all about chaotic, voluminous waves that was wild and free. Inspired by wild things, this look perfectly complemented the clothing collection, which featured grass-green silks with floral prints and signature Westwood draped cuts.
