Shaping the future of the Cut and Colour!
We take a look back at our BHA FINALIST Damien Johnston’s Northern Ireland collection ‘JOLIE’ from last year which includes beautiful short hair and some bold looks for longer hair combined with vibrant colour and vivid shades to really set the hairstyles off!
The Journey from idea to reality..
The process of creating a collection takes a long time, discussing looks, finding the perfect models and creating a theme that runs smoothly through the collection can be hard.
With last years collection natural beauty alongside graphic haircuts and how the two can fuse quite seamlessly without losing its femininity. Damien tells us that using delicate internal disconnection we can embrace flirty textures and create these contemporary romantic looks its all about getting to know your models hair type and working with it.
The shapes in this collection were inspired by the models themselves and what truly suited their faces something we always have as held as an important factor when finding the right haircut.
Finding the right Palette..
When comes to colour its all about skin tone so we decided that with such edgy haircuts we should keep our colour palette soft and pretty. So deep reds, blush pinks, rich violets and vibrant copper lead the way to these beautiful feminine looks.
Styling we wanted to keep white and minimal with textured fabrics. We felt these would pop in the photo creating interest, in regards to make-up we wanted fresh faces, freckles, soft pink lips and glossy cheeks!. All this was delivered and created a youthful fresh vibe.
The Name Jolie is french for Pretty. We didn’t want to overthink the name of this collection it has such a minimalistic vibe and its all about the hair and the model, We have been naming our collections female names for a while now and this is continuing that tradition.
We work with a fantastic team and couldn’t have achieved this photoshoot without them.
