There’s something of a hair and beauty rebellion happening at the moment, with edgy shapes and downright grungy coifs taking over the runways. Marques’ Almeida called on Duffy, Brand Ambassador for Vidal Sassoon to create the alt beach wave that girls sported during the show. I stepped backstage to chat about what it takes to get the look.  


The inspiration: “It’s always about texture with Marques’ Almeida. It’s a combination of textures; a distressed element to the girl and to the hair. It’s like the girls have been out dancing all night, sweated lots, put a hat on, fallen asleep on the bus home, and taken the hat off.”
How to get the shape: “We’re creating a knot in the back of the head to reduce weight and make the headshape small. The area at the top of the head is very flat and squashed to the head. Then we’re breaking the hair up in areas so it’s stringy."
