COLLECTION| House of Evolution AW12 Hair Trends

Our wonderful sponsors, Toni and Guy are out in full force this afternoon preparing for the House of Evolution showcase due to start at 4pm.  The backstage space is full to capacity with, not only hair stylists but make-up artists, photographers, PR assistants, journalists and designers so it was no suprise that Toni and Guys young and trendy International artistic director Bill Watson was run off his feet and barely able to stop for a chat, speaking to us as he re-pined one models fringe back and inserted more extensions to the ends of another.
The house of Evolution’s range showcases three differing hair trends. Designer Nadine Merabi’s models are featured with tied back, gathered locks, in thick twists and twirls finished off with elegant soft side quiffs. A Japanese influence is present for designer Zeynep Tosun, which sees a low layer of long blonde hair extensions and entwines folded and stitched in sections of hair into either high-top tied back or high-top folded under ponytails. Lastly the statement hair trend for designer Delada, contains swept back tresses into a relatively loose bun to the low right side of the models heads to give a shabby but chic appearance. All are striking and innovative creations on par with the contemporary and edgy clothing from emerging and pioneering designers. Toni and Guy know how to create a showstopper in keeping with the House of Evolution’s ethos.
