LCM AW14

It’s Paul’s 2nd season working with Fudge at London Collections Men and Fudge are sponsoring more shows than ever before.

“It was a pleasure working with a team of such talented people and everyone bouncing off of each other in such high pressured moments back stage”. The Art Team this season included stylists from Fudge salons all over the UK as well as stylists from Italy, Slovenia and Holland. 

Over the 3 days Fudge had sponsored over 20 shows and Paul was fortunate enough to dominate back stage alongside John Vial and Cinta Miller heading up and working on 8 shows in total. The busy schedule meant we had several art teams working across central London. over the 3 days Paul worked on hair for designers such as Katie Eary, KTZ, Christopher Shannon and A.SAUVAGE, Kit Neale, James Long, MAN, Craig Green and more.

Super shiny and slick hair are going to be 2 HOT trends in AW14. Across the 3 days shiny hair with texture was most notably at Burberry Prorsum, Hackett and Christopher Raeburn. The super slick version made an appearance at J.W.Anderson, Lee Roach and Jonathan Saunders.

Fringes were also huge this season for a modern twist on a bowl cut at Sibling and long fringes at Kit Neale. Paintbox by Fudge was also in demand with an authentic punk look being recreated by Tina Outen at Katie Eary. A.SAUVAGE went for an orphan warrior look to contrast with the clean, tailored collection. 

The super shiny look continued at Christopher Shannon where the models were made to look like they had been out in the rain playing football. To create the look Fudge Hair Gum was applied to give the wet look before individual strands were placed across the face.

We also created super slicked back hair for KTZ using Fudge Hair Cement to damp down the hair before combing the hair back and setting with a hairdryer. The final look was completed withFudge Head Shine to give a super shiny finish.

It was no surprise to see key trend is slicked hair as shown in Alan Taylor, Matthew Miller and Topshop. That said we’ve seen huge diversity, everything from skin heads to waist length hair at Astrid Anderson, to painted on hair lines at Bobby Abley. Paul Phillips commented “It’s so inspirational working with mens hair in such different ways these days, a lot of techniques that would normally be used on women and women only are now being transferred over into mens hairdressing”.
