Waxing Nostalgic

Kerry Mather creates glamorous cuts and curls in a retro collection.

Past meets present in this exclusive body of work from Kerry Mather, owner of KJM Salons in Fleet, Hampshire, England and 2014 finalist of the British Hairdressing Awards–Southern Region. “I wanted to create a veil of nostalgia and innocence around this collection while still keeping it contemporary,” Mather says. “The images blend strong iconic shapes, movement and striking silhouettes.”
