Inspired by the Mediterranean, Asta Resort showcased its new collection at Afterpay Australian Fashion Week, featuring sophisticated resort wear and seamlessly styled top knots from hair partner Redken, writes Ashleigh Matheson.

We spoke to hair director Jacky Chan backstage to find out the inspiration behind the hair looks.

“The inspiration mainly comes from what the brand is about itself. Asta Resort wear embodies that girl who wants to chill on the beach, enjoy her days and getting lost in time – so having that lovely, organic, natural, wet-look about the hair, but being slightly dried into as well because of the girl being lost in time.”

“It’s a look that’s quite versatile,” Jacky continyed. “She can be laying on the beach or she can be out having a dance with the hairstyle. Just like the outfit, it very much speaks for itself.”

Jacky revealed, “Quick Blow-Out by Redken is a go-to product for me because it reconditions the hair, heat protects and dries the hair within half the time – for me it’s defiantly a go-to product for fashion week.”

Tip top, top-knot perfection.
