Lockdown Mannequin Head Creations We Have Seen on Instagram

by akesha / last updated June 15, 2020

Lockdown has illuminated a lot of things for us all, but for many hairdressers it’s really highlighted how much they love to get creative with a head of hair. So while the salons have been closed and shoots remain postponed hairdressers have been reacquainting with their mannequin heads.

Here are some of the best mannequin head creations we have spied on Instagram lately. Tag us with #HJLoves and #HJColourReel so we can see your creations.

Anyone else itching to get back into the salon? 🤚 I couldn’t wait any longer, I’ve treated myself to a new dolls head and lots of new colours. It’s time to get creative again! . I’ve been feeling massively inspired recently by @lydwolfehair , @caseyc_hair , @glam.by.heather & @jaymz.marsters with their lockdown colour creations. Go check them out because there’s some legendary creations on their pages! Check @caseyc_hair especially he’s got some amazing education videos! . Created this face frame moment using @crazycolorltd from my favourites @salonsdirect. Face frame was created using peacock blue with graphite. The root was done mixing @crazycolorau canary yellow with peacock blue with conditioner to create this fresh mint colour. Once the root was painted I created a colour melt using @notanothersalon perfect bleed technique using marshmallow with a dash of cyclamen to add a punch more depth to the pink. Every third section I sliced in some canary yellow into the mix to add a bit of pop! . Prepped with @kmshairuk Styled using @ghdhair gold straighteners brushed out using @kentsalonuk KS01 cushion oval brush to create this waved look! . Loved creating this look. What’s your thoughts? . . . . . #brighthair #hairdressing #hairdresser #hairstyle #haircolor #shineline #rainbowhair #hairtutorial #ombre #allure #cosmopolitan #behindthechair #hairgoals #coloredhair #vividhair #hairtrends #unicorn #neonhair #asmr #curlyhair #love #creativehair #brighton #ukhairdressing #colour #colouredhair #crazycolour #pinkhair #hjcolourreel

Love this natural twist on the mermaid braid

@lydwolfehair

The pop of pink really gives this pixie shag hybrid another dimension.

⁣ INSPIRED BY ✨ ROKH AW20⁣ ⁣ I actually did this days ago but have been struck down with some kinda bug 🤒 (thankfully not corona) so been staring at it wistfully from across the room until finally getting the energy to get a piccy today. ⁣ ⁣ Cut an old blockhead used for practising graduated bobs into this – some kinda pixie/ shag 😍⁣ ⁣ Colour formulas in my next post 🔜 using @goldwelluk Colorance and styled with a little @kmshairuk Dry Wax ⁣ ⁣ I’ve been staring at this too much. @jackmead_stylist is definitely done with me overthinking every mannequin head on this lockdown. ⁣ ⁣ But am I the only one who’s finding having more time to think means more time for self doubt? I hope not ❤️⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣#hairsocialsstyle #hairsocialstyle @hairsocials @karoliinasaunders . . . #colourpalette ⁣⁣#iamgoldwell #goldwellcolorance #ukhairdresser #crafthairdresser #shaghaircut #pixieshag #lockdownlife #lockdownhair #limage_gmbh #pinkhair #pinkhaircolor #pinkhairdontcare #mulletsofinstagram #mullethaircut #aw20 #hjcoloureel ⁣⁣ ⁣

Channeling the glamour with this accessorised faux bob.

We love Marge’s wedge/firefly haircut (which Jordanna did for HJ Goes Live)

View this post on Instagram

This is Marge, my quarantine client. What have you all been up to?! I've done 1 haircut throughout the whole 3 weeks 🙈. The rest of my time has been spent watching peaky blinders, waking the dog, reorganizing drawers and reading books. All quarantine to do list and suggestions welcome please! Thank you yo everyone that tuned into IG live @hairdressersjournal yesterday for my version of the wedge or firefly, and amazing to see everyone else version of it. For more IG live cuts or colour demos, please DM me. #quarantinelife #wedge #firefly #precisioncutting #headblock #cuttingeducation #haircut #haireducation #IGlive #hairstylist #graduation . . . . @wellahair @wellahairuk @mizutaniukandireland @cobellasalon
