Hair Trends Tried in Salon – Recreating the Spirit of LFW
Like most salons, the team at Spirit Hair Company love to follow London Fashion Week. But rather than admire from afar, a group of stylists from the salons in High Wycombe and Wallingford decided to take some of the key hair trends from the autumn/winter 2017 catwalks and turn them into salon-friendly looks for their clients.
Says salon co-director, Lauren Turner: “The team are always inspired by London Fashion Week, but we thought it would be a great idea to show how the hair from the catwalk can be filtered down into wearable styles for our clients.”
Here are some of the key looks that inspired the team, and how they recreated them…
