It’s what he’s calling the Indian Princess Pin-up, inspired by the days of the Raj with its elegance and simplicity, swept back to create a clean front but with a slightly messy shape at the back for a sense of only casual grooming.
Sam created the updo for the Graeme Black show at London Fashion Week and he’s shared with us his steps for recreating the look at home…
Sam used Pantene Pro-V Volume & Body Magnifying Hairspray, £2.99, to finish the look but says it’s important to care for hair to ensure it can withstand damaging styling techniques such as tonging and backcombing by using good-quality haircare products regularly.
He recommends Pantene’s new Pro-V Repair & Protect Conditioner, £2.19, an intensive treatment to protect and nourish.
“The key to the look I created for the Graeme Black show is having hair that is shiny and manageable to give the appearance of elegance whilst still looking undone,” he points out.
“But styling can take its toll on hair – so if you want to make the most of this look you need to shampoo and condition your hair from root to tip to help combat damage.”
