LFW Hair Secrets

The need-to-know on next season's top tricks


By Bella Blissett
Amidst the melee, hairspray slipstream and more brushes than you can shake a blusher at backstage, some words of true wisdom emerge. Not even two full days into London and the session stylists have done us proud with hair tips. So good are they we've been dying to have a go ourselves.

Here's our top of the tips rundown so far:
Felder Felder's Toothbrush Trick
Adam Reed and Paul Percival have spent the last week buying wooden toothbrushes by the barrel load. Stating that wooden brushes cause less static than your common or garden plastic one, they popped a bit of Sebastien Professional Shine Crafter wax onto the bristles and used it to smooth flyaways around the parting. That's what we call smart slicking.

The Sausage Bob at Clements Ribeiro
Don't fancy going for the chop? Sam McKnight's faux bob at Clements will prove to be your saviour. Braiding a small underneath section to create an anchor, he pulled the rest of the hair back into a baggy pony, tied an elastic mid way down the tail and wrapped it around a styling sausage. A quick nip, tuck and pin at the base of the neck followed by a spritz of Pantene Classic Hairspray and you can cheat your way to short.

Brow Borderlines at DAKS
If spring summer 2013 has a strong hair trend thus far, it has to be side partings. Up or down, the rest of your hair can go swing for it - as long as you get the depth of your parting right. Backstage at DAKS, Luke Hersheson imagined a piece of thread running down from the hairline to the 3/4 mark along the brow to judge just where his deep side part should start. A blast of L'Oreal Paris Infinium Hairspray ensured it stayed just so.
