Ash Brown Step by Step
This look is all about the sophisticated rebel – a look the brand reinterpreted to include quintessential “chunky highlights” modernised with a brand-new ash colour palette. This looks stays true to its rebel roots with a messy texture and a soft fringe for an edgy, modern vibe. This colour is based on an ash and chocolate palette which redefines the concept of a brunette with a bold contrast. The cut is then a layered look with a soft fringe to showcase an effortlessly chic vibe of the ’90s girl whilst the texture is kept messy for “a touch of a rebel in a sophisticated look” vibe. The fashion gets back to basics with a denim shirt tucked into oversized ripped jeans accessorised with platform sports sandals.
