LFW Hair Inspiration: Retro Waves at SIBLING A/W14

This week I was lucky enough to be asked along to the hair test for SIBLING's A/W 2014 show by the hair sponsor, L'Oreal Paris. The stylist for the test was Syd Hayes (who, on a side note, was totally lovely and down to earth!) and he created a gorgeous, slightly boho, messy retro look inspired by Fleetwood Mac legend Stevie Nicks.

We filmed a little montage of the test on the day, and I also recorded a quick tutorial for my wearable take on the look afterwards too! If you fancy taking a look, here's the video:
Product-wise, Syd's kit list (in order of appearance!) consisted of...


- L'Oreal Elnett Heat Protect Spray for Waves - £5.99 (Currently £3.99 at Boots!)
- L'Oreal Studio Line TXT Texturising Spray - £3.79
- L'Oreal Elnett 'Volume Excess' Hair Spray - £6.60
- Garnier Dry Shampoo (which isn't out yet!)
- A medium-sized curling tong (his was apparently a discontinued one from a professional french brand... snazzy!) This was the one I used
- Hair dryer (any one will do!)
The Inspiration:
The Finished Look:
My version (a little windswept in the glorious english weather!)
What do you guys think? Is this a look you'd wear? I personally love the hat and am going to be wearing me (slightly smaller version, from Topshop!) a lot.

  30. You did a brilliant job achieving the London Fashion Week inspired wavy hair look! Your hair came out looking beautiful. You made it look so easy and got such a wonderful result that it made me wish I had long hair again so I could try using this method.
