Spring is upon us, so what better time to revamp your hair and grab yourself a brand new look?
If you’re stuck for ideas, Rogue Hair Belfast have some pro advice for achieving the latest on-trend styles.
Boasting the only two L’Oreal ID Artists in Northern Ireland, they’ are noted for being one step ahead of the rest in showcasing key hair looks for each season.
Rogue Hair have won multiple awards over the years, including once again being shortlisted as regional finalists for the 2016 L’Oreal Colour Trophy. The team are showing no sign of slowing down and have shared their four favourite looks for SS 16…
Inspired by the 90’s themes so evident on the catwalks, from the original supermodels and movie’s such as Pulp Fiction to artists such as Gwen Stefanie and the Prodigy, Rogue have created a collection of four very different looks and capitalised on their expertise in colour by incorporating a variety of colour pop and colour melting techniques to highlight the edgy cuts created.
So look no further for the next look you should be rocking now that spring has officially sprung!
1. The Undercut
An undercut (left) creates an edgy but highly versatile style which can be worn flat and chic or quiffed with loads of texture depending on the occasion.
A full head of platinum was applied using new super product Olaplex to keep the hair in good condition, Olaplex is a fluid which is added to the colour to protect the internal structure of the hair during the lightening process.
This provided the basis for the dusty lilac pastel tones with a deeper tone applied to the roots to create a deliberate roots effect in contrast to the lightened ends resulting in a stunning punky grunge effect.
Rogue used L’Oreal’s Techni Art sleek and swing styler to create control and natural movement and finished the look with texture dust to give definition.
Maintain the look by topping up in between colours with pastel toners, the great thing about pre-lightened hair is that you can play about with different tones and change regularly as toners wash out easily.
2. Inverted Bob
Inspired by Mrs Mia Wallace and as seen on Giorgio Armani’s catwalk for SS16, this inverted bob (right) is another 90’s inspired trend, a timeless classic that keeps coming back on trend.
This particular look has been brought bang up to date with a spectacular colour re-invention.
Highlighting the blunt cut fringe, this pop of colour really brings the wow factor for a very cool and quirky look. A colour melting technique was used through the lengths to blend the cool brown into cool blonde creating this ‘in your face’ two-tone effect.
Rogue used L’Oreal’s Techni Art Liss control cream for the smooth and sleek high shine finish.
Maintain the look by topping up the colour with frosty milkshake toners to keep up the icy cool tone.
This style is inspired by the Ashish models’ summer sequence at London Fashion week, where the Dehli born designer covered not only his clothes with sequins and glitter but also the models hair.
The look, as re-created by Rogue, also takes on the underwear as outerwear theme with slicked back wet-look hair and dazzling adornments. It’s a great Saturday night style for the most daring fashionista.
Get the look by using L’Oreal’s Wet Domination extreme splash gel and sprinkle on the glitter – the gel acts like a glue and holds the glitter in place perfectly for a night out!
Alternatively, this look works well as a panel on just one side with relaxed, disheveled waves – super easy to create at home!
4. Pink hair don’t care!
This curled easy-to-wear look is Rogue’s interpretation of the spiral perm of the 90’s, but it’s worn looser and with subtle highlights of Rose Quartz to give it that edgy 2016 feel.
It’s a natural look with an unnatural twist. This colour was created using a concoction of colours to give the cleanest and best results.
Rogue created the spiral curls using L’oreal’s full volume mousse and Techni Pli setting spray after which the hair was pin curled and left to set.
The stunning look was finished off with Wild Stylers Savage Panache dry touch powder spray to create outrageous textures in the hair.
