Ben is very creative and loves experimenting and creating different styles with hair up and has a lot of experience with trying out different looks. Whilst working at Nicky Clarke’s he entered and won a Soiree where he had to design two looks from a film. For the Soiree Ben chose James Bond as his theme and two contrasting looks which blew the judges away . His eye for detail allows him to create beautiful up dos for any occasion. In this instance he needed to create a 1920s look on Long hair. A combination of curling and setting created
the perfect faux bob look.
Louise, who is a makeup artist as well as our Colour Director, also has a natural knack at creating the perfect look no matter what. After researching the vintage styles she perfectly matched the foundation ( making it paler than usual), emphasised the eyebrows to create a thicker arch (which was the height of fashion) and embellished the lips to create a fuller more vibrant look. The eyes were a pure masterpiece. Combining Charlotte Tilbury’s beautiful shades of gold and purples she created a smokey eye. Louise’s hot tip with smokey eyes is “it’s all about patience and blending and more blending”. The eyes were finished off with a gentle brown eyeliner and subtle flick which was softer than the more common harsh black liner.
