We’re always on the look out for a new hair colour trend, from rainbow brights to ombre styles. So when hair colour pro, Josh Wood, offered us an exclusive sneak peek behind the scenes to see his colour creations for Mary Katrantzou’s Autumn/Winter ’19 catwalk show, we jumped at the chance. And we were not disappointed!
Josh is the go-to catwalk colourist for designer’s wanting innovative hair colour, alongside the styling, to top off their collections. He was the man behind the candyfloss hair hues at Marc Jacobs’ Spring/Summer Show, cementing pastels as the hottest shades of the season. He was also a pioneer of the grey hair trend, turning supermodel Kristen McMenamy a stunning silver shade.
With Mary Katrantzou’s signature kaleidoscope prints always on our fashion wish list, we couldn’t wait to see what their collab would bring. In the week before Mary’s London Fashion Week show we headed over to Josh Wood’s London Atelier, to see the show prep in action.
Josh explains the inspiration behind the looks. “Mary’s collection is sectioned into four worlds relating to the four elements; earth, wind, fire and water. We’ve worked with the amazing fabrics in the collection to create two patterned hair techniques that we’ve called ‘Colour Clouds’ and ‘Horizon Colour’.
