"I was invited to a summer party and the theme was "Black and White". Rather than copying everyone else and going for a black top and white bottoms, I decided to colour my hair
. So that I didn’t get bored of it (and so I didn’t shock my colleagues!) I decided to use a temporary silver spray."
I have really brown hair
, so the contrast between my base colour and the coloured spray would have been quite striking, and I wanted something elegant for the party. I decided to backcomb my hair
on top to create a graphic-looking quiff
. I then tied it up into a neat chignon
. To hold the style in place I used hairspray. That’s when the colour comes in.
I sprayed my silver hairspray
across my whole hair, focusing on the top of my hair to create a striking contrast with my base colour. Not only did the product fix my hairstyle in place, but it gave me a wonderful grey colour. Luckily, the spray washes out with one wash! Pleased and confident about the result, I went to the party and the colour got a great reception!" © Pixelformula/Alexis Mabille Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2013 © Jean Louis David
