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.


What’s not to love about this stunning block colour/colour melt from Casey at CHAIR Salons?


Pony goals! A braid really does up an updo, doesn’t it?


Technicolor dreams from Portland Pulp Riot Artist Meg Moon.

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 , & @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 #behindthechair #hairgoals #coloredhair #vividhair #hairtrends #unicorn #neonhair #asmr #curlyhair #creativehair #colour #colouredhair #crazycolour #hjcolourreel #fellowshipcolourimage20 #fellowshipsnapshot20 #fellowshiplockdownlook

Love this natural twist on the mermaid braid


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