This editorial shoot was a true collaboration between all creatives. I wanted to show the process of colour and capture the sectioning patterns, which to me, are an art form. Watching the colour lighten, change tone, and becoming brighter reminds me of nature and blooming flowers. The overall inspiration for the shoot was taken from the pop art movement, looking at artists such as Warhol and Lichtenstein. Pop art uses strong bold colours to make statements that were eye-catching and thought-provoking.

Inspiration: late 90ʼs American influence, Nirvana meets Clueless

Technique: Taken from 90ʼs braids styling, I used a very similar technique for the colour application. I started off by applying block colour to the back sections working with angled sections to add strength. In the front I then twisted the colour into tiny sections as if I was braiding the hair. Working on blonde hair I used bright semi permanents, working with 3 colours: Pink Flamingo, Orange Sorbet and Candy Red.

Inspiration: late 70’s New Romantic

Technique: I pre-lightened the hair to a pale yellow shade and created a pattern with strong bold sections. I worked with three colours through the back sections using Mykonos Blue and Purple Bubblegum, and through the top parts I incorporated a third colour which was Peppermint.

Inspiration: Marvel superhero (the villain)

Technique: I wanted the colour application to look slick and dramatic, so I worked with Tiffany’s haircut to help and guide me to the sectioning pattern. I prepped the hair by creating a colour bleed before toning it with pre-lightener to the top section of the hair. Once developed, I then sectioned the hair from the crown to the hairline, and through the underneath parts I used a clear gloss with tones, using oranges and yellows, to create an orange fire, and through the front section I worked with a bright popping yellow.

Inspiration: 90s brit, This Is England

Technique: I wanted to capture the process of a bleach application and how you see the levels of lift, because personally I find the process really exciting as it happens right before your eyes. Once complete, the colour inspiration was inspired by Keith Flint from the Prodigy. Strong bold sections working with 3 colours: Acid Green, Petrol Blue and Electric Blue. Through the back and side sections I worked with Electric Blue and through the top Acid Green, in the fringe section I worked with all three colours to create a melting effect.
