:: Spotlight :: Kevin Murphy styles Ashkar Line at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 2015

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

The Kevin Murphy team, directed by James Nicholson, styled the hair for the recent Ashkar Line runway show at this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Sydney. A mix of urban street and city chic, the collection focused on fresh, contemporary cuts, balancing innovation and wearability. Jamie Ashkar and Tristan Melle launched the label in 2012, and since then have been taking the fashion industry by storm.

Hair Director and Kevin Murphy session master James Nicholson created a relaxed, contemporary look for Ashkar Line’s MBFWA SS16 collection, featuring a mix of textures from wet to dry with effortless control around the hairline and natural texture falling through the back, which was gently captured at the base in a stitched origami inspired fold.

How to create the look at home:

1. Prime hair with KEVIN.MURPHY’s new UN.TANGLED de-tangler and leave-in conditioner

2. Prep the hair by blow drying in KEVIN.MURPHY HAIR.RESORT.SPRAY with a large KEVIN.MURPHY ROLL.BRUSH pulling all the hair back off the face

3. Tie a simple knot at the base of the hair and stitch in to the middle of the origami fold using linen thread from the KEVIN.MURPHY SEWING.KIT. Leave the ends out to exaggerate the fold

4. Finish with KEVIN.MURPHY UN.DRESSED and KEVIN.MURPHY SESSION.SPRAY for control and shine
