Viewing 'Fashion Week' Category
This collection explores the idea of bi-levels in the hair. To showcase the personality and individuality of each look and model, the hair has been created with a tiered structure in colour and shape. The combination of strong carved sections with soft details sets this collection alight.

As fashion week wrapped up, the HARE & BONE Art Team were invited to Chicago to present 10 looks at a global hair conference. Sam, Jamie and Amelia created the hair that was then showcased to over 25,000 people. Taking inspiration from the European club scene, the team produced a catwalk show during the three-day international hairdressing event, before flying back to celebrate our Esher salon’s fifth birthday.
“The team and I had an incredible experience delivering our latest collection ‘Hardcore Happiness’ in Chicago. The concept of the show was inspired by the underground rave scene of the 90s and currently spreading across Europe. We looked to Berlin for inspiration and incorporated a slight goth tone to the collection. We opened the catwalk show with a feeling of oppression and conforming, staged to look like models queueing outside Berghain. The colours we used on the hair were deep and oily but then we pulled the wigs off on stage to showcase strong, textured 00s-inspired cuts The show was all about self-expression, and the colour work was inspired by lights and lasers of a club, representing that sense of release you feel when lost in music.”
As LFW week comes to a close, we take a look at another very special show Sam Burnett was lead stylist on for Vin + Omi. The sustainable, anti-establishment duo, who was recently named the UK’s ‘most interesting fashion designers’ by The Wardrobe Crisis showcased their latest offering at One Hundred Shoreditch. Inspired by the punk movement, Sam and his team of season stylists created bold looks that added further drama to the show.
“Creating such directional hair looks for Vin + Omi is always a real pleasure, especially as we’re supporting designers working sustainably, spreading such a positive message in the fashion world. The looks themselves were created with some intricate graphic braiding that was extended through length, punk-inspired liberty spikes and classic mohawk shapes. It’s always great to be at the forefront of London Fashion Week creating trends and influencing movement within hair.”
