Rush Artistic Team Puts a Spin on Classic Hairstyles in Exclusive Collection

No doubt about it: Creative magic happens when artists come together, bringing their distinctive styles and unique skill-sets to the studio, with the overarching goal of lifting artistry to new levels. Witness the Rush Artistic Team’s Lost Rebels collection, seen exclusively on these pages. Strong women, sporting shattered shapes and opposing yet complementary colors of dawn and sunset, are the centerpiece of the portfolio created by International Creative Director Andy Heasman, International Colour Director Chris Williams, Editorial Director Tina Farey, Education Director Paola Pinto, and Rush team members Seung ki Baek, Jamie Benny and MJ Farmer. “Using different textures and techniques enabled us to put a new spin on classic hairstyles, creating looks with an edgy touch that are effortless, modern and cool,” says Heasman.

For a new take on the mullet, the Rush Artistic Team amplified texture by tightly curling the crown section and then shortening the length.

“The key to this look is disconnection,” says Andy Heasman, who along with his team created the textured crown by taking each hair section and disconnecting it from the previous one.

Layering paired with choppy fringe adds sizzle to this stylish shape.

After crimping all the hair, the Rush Artistic Team used a paddle brush to comb strands and create voluminous, frothy texture.

The Rush Artistic Team crafted braids toward the front of the hair, then used a mix of crimping and backcombing to achieve the style’s voluminous effect.

After sectioning the hair with cotton wool, Williams used a freehand color technique to achieve patterned shades in the style.
