Create the look: Grungy grey

The new Mineral Collection: An exciting collection of shades inspired by earth, minerals and stone for saturated but not heavy colour results. The A/W 2015 Collection's marbled colours and untamed textures mirror what the elements do to nature, in hair.

Craft the latest looks, inspired by the way that wind and weather can lighten colour: by the accidental textured layers created by a pulled-off hat; by just-opened-upbraids that retain the ghost of their shapes. It’s about texturising colour: using knots, twists, plaits and braids as an in-process technique for colour and styling. Crafted functionality is elevated into a strong beauty look.

STEP 02:

Start from one side, take diagonal wave sections (depth of each section can vary, work visually). Alternate the following colours on each section on to the mid-lengths and ends; Colour A, Colour B,  Colour A and Colour C. Continue this colour combination until both sides are complete.
