Hair Director: Renya Xydis for Cloud Nine
It’s “50’s inspired, but it feels more like 2050” says Lydia Pearson.
Renya Xydis and her Cloud Nine army of session stylists whipped up a frenzy of colourful hair piled high on top of model’s heads in an artfully dishevelled up-do inspired by Hitchcock heroine Tippi Hedren’s icy blonde French roll in ‘The Birds”.
HOW TO GET THE LOOK
Step 1: Start by sectioning the hair into 5 equal sections vertically down the head. One in the centre and 2 each side and clip away.
Step 2: Take the top of each section and set with TheO Rollers by Cloud Nine to start to give volume and shape to the hair. Leave to cool.
Step 3: While the top of the hair is setting and cooling, starting with the centre, begin to tease bottom half of the hair. Repeat for all sections.
Step 4: With the Cloud Nine Wand set to high, roll the whole section of hair, one at a time around the barrel starting from the end. Curl the hair the same direction as whichever way you will have the finished roll on. Repeat for all sections
Step 5: Liberally spray hair with hairspray and gently brush out your side section, leaving the centre as padding.
Step 6: Remove TheO Rollers from the top of the hair and mist with hairspray.
Step 7: Gently tease hair and with your wand set to high, curl the midlegths of the hair haphazardly.
Step 8: Clip the top crown section of hair away and starting on the right side of the head, brush all sections back towards the middle. Secure and spray.
Step 9: Twist the hair around allowing for lots of height to create the French roll. Secure with one large bobbly pin the centre of the roll.
Step 10: Once in place, pull the top section back out using a mason pearson brush. Tease at roots and dust with texture powder. Gently pull back in place messily as desired.
Step 11: Finish with generous amounts of coloured hairspray
