With the first shows of the season underway London Collections Men already up to view on GQ magazine theirs is so much to tempt you guys and my personal favourite was Richard Nicoll those shirts with ruffles are just something else ! Angela our session stylist was backstage and the hair was slick, groomed and held in place with a hair pin it was the coolest look to go with the bright colours, the tailoring and kitsch 70’s look. Their was lots of layering, checks and patterns which are some of the keys looks that were on the run way.

So lets get started on what you need to do to recreate the look….


The two hair looks above are perfect for the current trend hair is groomed,slick and polished to go with the smart tailoring out there. Or a looser more all american boy which suits the more casual / preppy look. To create our look on the left hair is cut short on the back and side leaving longer layers on top great for hair with natural movement as little effort is needed simply blowdry using fingers or small round brush then using a 10p side amount of  L’Oreal poker paste rub into palms and apply through hair to give a powerful hold yet, still allows hair to move by having a re-workable formula allowing  you to create texture.

To create the look on the right apply 10p size amount of Poker Paste to damp hair, add a low side part, use a small round brush to lift the front section, once dry add a little more poker paste, I also like to add a few drops of mythic oil to the paste mix well together before applying to dry hair really give a high shine. Then comb to the side up and away from the face. this look really compliments the tailoring out their right now.

Experiment with patterns, its all about the clash don’t be afraid to mix it up. If your not brave enough to go the whole way think about at least two statement pieces, like a pattern shirt with a stripe tie or a paisley hankie in your top pocket can liven up a pin stripe suit just remember to vary the size stick to this is the one simple rule and you can’t go wrong. As its all about style then it’s important to look after your clothes invest in a good clothes brush as just by brushing down your jacket / jumper after use will extend the life of your clothes, to complete your look it’s now become acceptable for guys to carry bags so you should own at least one great bag to carry essentials in as you never know it may be needed for the unexpected stay over.
