Heralding the new term, we’re keen to see hairdressing creatives pushing a strong colour story for a positive Autumn/Winter season. This release comes from HOB Academy, representing the large London-based salon group and led by 4-times British hairdresser of the Year Akin Konizi.
Akin is International creative director at HOB and tells us: “Based on the 80’s underground club scene, this collection represents a group of individuals with their own identity, after hours. Drawing inspiration from the punk movement but also each individual tribe of each of the girls, embracing their look and identity. Working with geometry that can be worn with texture and bold colour placements.”
