Ethically produced, demi-couture brand Nicol & Ford presented their new collection at Afterpay Australian Fashion Week (AAFW), with camp-style pieces and hair looks by professional hair partner Redken, writes Ashleigh Matheson.

“Today is a magical experience, we have been inspired by the artist Leonor Fini and his incredible artworks,” hair director Di Georviski revealed backstage.

“The hair is big, which has been so much fun to bring back onto the runway,” she shared. “We’ve really worked to create that body, it’s just been so much fun! We blow-dried the hair with Guts, we prepped it, we’ve put Fashion Work 12 in it, we’ve tonged it, we’ve backcombed it, brushed it out, and finished it off with Quick Tease.”

Di’s hero products for the day were Redken’s Quick Tease, Guts, and Fashion Work 12.

A true extravaganza of epic proportions in the middle of Fashion Week.

Get the look:

“Prep the hair with Redken Guts Volume Spray Foam and dry the product into the hair. Begin at the roots and create incisions one inch apart down to the ends of the hair mesh. Back-comb the mesh of hair using Redken Quick Tease 15 Backcombing Finishing Spray then, tong the hair mesh in a coil curl. To finish, brush out and add Redken Fashion Work 12 Working Spray to elevate the hair.”
