What’s not to like in this breakout collection from Krysia Eddery, which earned her a finalist slot in the Southern Hairdresser of the Year category at the 2018 British Hairdressing Awards? According to Eddery, the collection—dubbed Epoque—was inspired by a number of things, including the Sixties, natural, beautiful hair and classic hairdressing. “I do think these looks personify the direction that hair is heading in 2019,” says Eddery, the owner of Perfectly Posh Hair Design in Hungerford, England. “Clients are asking for looks like this and voluminous styles are taking center stage on the catwalk, too.” Can you say right on-trend?
Krysia Eddery colored the hair with Aveda bleach and toner to create an icy blonde hue, then cut locks into a pixie shape before applying a bit of Phomollient and Control Paste for smoothness.
To achieve this elegant, voluminous look, Eddery backcombed the hair before wrapping and molding it into a cylindrical shape. A misting of Shine Spray and Control Force finished the look.
Rollers were used to create height and volume before Eddery backcombed the hair rigorously to give it a full, voluminous effect. She then fashioned it into a classic French roll, holding the design in place with pins and a misting of Control Force.
To achieve this look, Eddery used a wig, cutting and styling it into a smooth bowl shape. Next, she straightened the hair to amplify glossiness before misting the design with Shine Spray.
Eddery applied some wefts to boost fullness before using a pencil tong to create tight curls, which she teased out and backcombed to amplify texture and shape. For the finishing touch, she misted the style with Control Force.
“Lots of backcombing was required for this look,” says Eddery, who also blow-dried the hair to create ample height at the root to achieve the bouffant shape. For the finishing touch, Control Force was misted throughout the style to help the design remain full and high and give it staying power.
