Lisa Shepherd: Summer Scarf Style Session

I gazed out the window of the train at the grey sky and wondered why on earth I was heading into London for a summer scarf style session with the fabulous Jason Cocking at the Lisa Shepherd Salon. However, I think the summer scarf style session can easily be adapted to fit with the delightful English summer. And it's nice to bring a bit of summer to your hair.
Sat in the chair, Jason explained the idea behind the session, and the looks we'd go through...
  • Festival Femme Fatale - This top knot is perfect festival hair when it's not feeling squeaky clean. Accessorise with a scarf and you are ready to go.
  • Holiday Honey - Totally sold by Jason's description "Perfect for beach hair - whether you're in Brighton or Barbados" Tucks your hair out the way, and you can personalise with tendrils to frame the face.
  • Contemporary Vintage - A real Bardot-esque style. Backcombing at the crown gives you the 'swinging sixties' style and the scarf helps highlight the volume and finish the look.
  • Prettier Plaits - Incorporating a scarf into a plait looks fantastic and is relatively simple to recreate. A great way to turn the simple plait into a casual masterpiece.
I went for the 'Holiday Honey' as I've always struggled putting my hair up with the scarf tied around. I always end up looking either like a 'fishwife' or the scarf slips off during the day. Jason went through how to create volume and how to ensure how to get your hair to hold. I loved the sections he left down to frame my face and I can confirm it stayed put through my journey home (sadly I got an absolute soaking so the drowned scarf style isn't as pretty!)
I got to keep the gorgeous red scarf I'd picked out the box and have already used it to recreate the 'Festival Femme Fatale' and know I'll be giving the rest a go during the next few months.
Massive thanks to Lisa Shepherd and Inkling for the session, was lovely to meet Jason, who turns out is from Swindon - not a million miles from my hometown. He picked up my accent straight away.
