Sharp, soft, wearable, and tough, hair at Dion Lee AW18 is a tale of two parts.
Eugene Souleiman for ghd professional created two variations on a single look whereby the texture of the hair changed seamlessly from root to tip: sharp, clean, deep side-parts transform into a looser, more natural form in the mid-lengths, and then again to raw, discretely waved ends with movement. Girls with thicker hair had it scooped into low-slung ponytails, others had it loose and tucked behind the ear, and in the pre-show lineup Eugene pressed fine flyaways found on the hairline into the forehead.
“At first glance this hair is simple, but in reality it’s very nuanced. The deep side part lends sharpness, the wisps a soft rawness”, says Eugene.
