How-To: The Military Fob

The Christopher Raeburn Autumn/Winter 2016 collection is inspired by red military garments from guards at Buckingham palace. Details include technical hand-embroidery on wool and silk with jacquards for an experimental look.

 “On seeing the collection with takes on militant looks, I wanted to do something with the hair that played on this theme. I created a polished but controlled look and incorporated an extreme side parting to finish.” -  Maria Kovacs, TIGI European Session Director

Kovacs created an understated, natural look with a dramatic side parting. Clean, youthful and glossy, hairs tucked into clothes to naturally create volume around the face. The smooth roots and ends are effortless in creating a young, updated ‘fob’ which effortlessly translates from catwalk to reality for an everyday Autumn/Winter look.

Step-by-step:

1.  Prep the hair by spritzing CATWALK by TIGIBodifying Spray onto dry hair
