The Coterie & Blow Presents...

London Fashion Week is a great chance to see not only the latest in clothing, but the trends being strutted down the catwalk for your hair. A (slightly) blurry eyed me, headed to LSO St Lukes on Sunday to see some amazing collections head down the catwalk and also got a chance to see some of the key trends and how to recreate them. First up the fashion, I thought the 'goth' styling of Liberum Arbitrium, the zips, hoods and grungy layering looked fantastic. I also thought Jane Bowler's collection was beautiful, from the gorgeous tassle detail to the shimmering scale like jackets. Wet look hair was featured majorly, from slicked back hair worn straight down the back to wet look knots, pulled tight at the back. Braids were keep to the front of the hair, and looped create a cornrow effect.
Adam Reed, creative genius of the House of Holland catwalk hair, and all round super session stylist recreated four key looks seen on the catwalk. I loved being close up so I could see all the hair workings, and Adam seems a lovely guy. He was using Sebastian products on the day, and the Shaper Fierce looks great, definitely a range to find out more about I think! It's great the little bits of advice you pick up, for example, hair combs and rubber bungees from Morrisons are just as good for the catwalk as for your hair. Who knew!?

I got some great ideas, and the thoughts are bouncing around my head for recreating these looks with my own twist. I love that all are wearable (well maybe not pompom's in your local supermarket!) and quite simple to do. Which will you be trying? Fake a fringe? Or Adam's take on the 40's?
Thanks to Talk PR for the invite, and the much needed Redbull! :)


  1. Absolutely loving the 40's disheveled waves, I'd love to try that.
    That Liberum Arbitrium model looks like me when I've been swimming. x

  2. Love this collection! Very reminiscent of the 1920's flapper era. =)
