Hair Inspiration: The Hat Trick collection is a continuation of Tinie Tempah’s brand’s original aesthetic, offering functional and stylish luxury sportswear to the modern-day British man (or woman). Tapping into the 1990s sports luxe theme of the collection, hair was kept clean and natural. Crops were textured with a dry finish, with long locks gelled to perfection.

‘Las Vegas Party Boys’ at Liam Hodges
Session stylist: Matt Mulhall at Fudge Professional
Hair Inspiration: This show was reminiscent of a trip to Las Vegas, with the models looking like they’d just stepped off the plane after a night of partying, keen to keep the good vibes going strong. This tribute to Sin City featured trash-glam styling, dirty flat hairstyles and outrageous tattoos.
The products: Fudge Professional Vinyl Pomade RRP £13.95 and Fudge Professional Skyscraper Extra RRP £10.45
‘Deconstructed Braids and Curls’ at Bianca Saunders
Session stylist: Dexter Johnson and the Toni & Guy session team
Hair Inspiration: Bianca’s collection is focused on challenging social norms and what masculinity means today. Therefore the braids, and soft and natural texture that Toni & Guy team created added a feminine feel to the collection.
The products: label.m Anti-Frizz Lotion, label.m Anti-Frizz Cream and label.m Anti-Frizz Mist
‘Groomed Hippie’ at Oliver Spencer
Session stylist: Johnnie Sapong at The Wall Group for Electric Hair
Hair Inspiration: This is a man who is a modern hippie, free and wild but still with a fresh look and a touch of rockabilly vibes. This hippie is a rocker at heart.
The products: Electric oC-2 Smoothing Cream £18.50, Electric oC-5 Volume Liquid Mist £20.00, Electric oC-4 Shaping Paste £16.50 and Electric oC7 e.Spray £19.00
‘Natural and Free Flowing’ at Wood Wood
Session stylist: Jan Przemyk for AOFM Pro using R+Co
Hair Inspiration: The hair took on a texure that reflected being in great outdoors. The particular type of texture was inspired by being caught in the rain and leaving your hair to dry without touching it so there was a lot of movement but not any real volume.
The products: R+Co ONE Prep Spray, R+Co ROCKAWAY Salt Spray, R+Co SPIRITUALIZED Dry Shampoo Mist and R+Co TROPHY Shine + Texture Spray
