“The SS16 Nasir Mazhar collection represents the fire and inspiration of the streets. I wanted to create an army of real people to represent a real collection,” explains designer Nasir Mazhar. To complement the collection, session stylist Ali Pirzadeh created the hairstyles to be all about attitude and individualism. "No two looks are alike as are no two hair styles,” says Pirzadeh.
“Each male model had a look distinct to their style and hair texture, those with long hair were given a sleek finish using the GO24·7 CREAM WAX, for those with shorter, more textured cuts I used the GO24·7 POMADE to create structure. All looks were finished with the GO24·7 CONTROL SPRAY to set the look.”
“First I prepped the hair with the U Luxury Oil, before blow drying the hair using the UNITE 43mm Round Brush and gathering the hair into a high ponytail. I then attached the half wig of long curly hair to the head. I then sprayed the remaining natural hair with the UNITE Session Max, before using a curling tong to create tight curls. I then finished the look with the UNITE Tricky Spray to added hold and texture. To add extra shine to the look, I added a small amount of the U Luxury Oil to the front of the hair.”
