In the course of our lives, we all come across art at some point. But what is art? What is creation? These are questions that the hairdressers in the Haute Coiffure Française design team are constantly pondering as they forge ahead with their avant-garde approach. This season, the design team is putting on a show that places these questions centre stage. “Come to Art”: asking creators the question of creation.

Inspiration: Youth is a mode. It’s an attitude. It’s engaged with newness. Experimental, changeable, rebellious and free, this collection celebrates distinctiveness.
Taking a ‘straight up’ photographic style as its theme, each cut and colour is designed as a bespoke creation and are as distinct as the wearers are eclectic. Each look is cut with precision using the Sassoon house codes, then subverted by finishing the hair in a looser fashion, almost as if the wearers had dressed it themselves.
Says Mark “I wanted to show how our proprietary methods can be absolutely tailored to the person to express their personality. I included the iconic flying hair imagery inspired by Richard Avedon, so that the cuts could be truly shown in motion. Of course I have a geometric approach to cutting, but the point is that the end result doesn’t have to be geometric. “Its the smallest details that create uniqueness.”

Looking for ideas to inspire younger clients this summer? Here there are some of the better red-carpet looks from the A-list to show you how to incorporate hair accessories for prom. Lupita Nyong’o gives a supersized bun a further detail with a jewelled ribbon wrapped around the base. Easy to replicate with trim from your local haberdasher. Brie Larson dresses up a loose, tousled bun with a glittering jewelled headband. The perfect blend of low-key hair with high-octane accessories. Kate Hudson rocks a topknot with a clip in jewelled comb – check out ASOS for similar. Georgia May Jagger pairs side-slung Hollwood waves with an oversized floral comb for an elegant look with a fun twist.
For a seriously statement look, choose something oversized like Rihanna’s glittering tiara worn over the top of a sleek hairstyle. A sleek satin turban is the perfect finishing touch to Olivia Wilde’s smooth and straight style. Fresh flowers always make an impact and Chrissy Teigen’s purple orchids are the perfect choice with her Hollywood waves – and she gets extra points for matching it to her lipstick. We’re getting warrior woman vibes from Zendaya’s studded headpiece, worn with swept-back simple waves.
The Westrow Artistic Team has unveiled its latest colour collection – Silent Fusion. Taking inspiration from the silent movies of the Twenties and Thirties and in particular actress Louise Brooks, the team used conceal and reveal colour techniques for a bold, strong, polished look that was softened to create an intricate finish. Hair was left silky and glistening, with luminous sheer panels of contrasting tones, creating hidden depths of colour within bold, beautiful haircuts.
