Shot timelessly in black and white, The British Hairdressing Awards’ Scottish Hairdresser of the Year Phillip Bell of Ishoka, Aberdeen, merged contemporary styling with a classic old Hollywood aesthetic in his collection submission.
The basis of the collection is in the creation of shapes, both geometric and exaggerated. The result is the fusion of texture and technique in the formation of alluring, contemporary hair. The looks deliberately clash textures, creating juxtaposition in the absence of colour and forming bold, interesting shapes that veer towards futurism and Avant Garde. Conversely, the black and white photographic aesthetic is inspired by old Hollywood legends such as Lauren Bacall.
Some bold lips and the odd winged liner shows just how much you can do without colour, manipulating texture and shape in a collection that shines technically and creatively.
