Sydney by Mark Woolley
The styles of Mark Woolley's "Sydney" collection are at once traditional and ultimately modern.
The looks are completely wearable and well-suited to the upbeat tempo of cosmopolitan living. They are hairstyles that would be right at home in any metropolitan city in the world.
Punky Hair Style
The cut: This short hairstyle is a spiky, straight, gamine-cut that's full of punky style. Choppy and chunky texturing and smoothly-straightened locks give the hair a fun edge.
The color: The cool, pale blonde of the hair color with the darker scalp area give definition to the style.
The style: To create the style, apply styling gel to towel-dried hair along with a protective leave-in conditioner. Blow-dry the hair straight and use a flat-iron to smooth the locks into a random pattern. Use a pomade or wax to define the locks and add strength to the spikes.
Long Natural Curls
The cut: The model's long, natural curls are layered just a little to control the bulk at the ends.
The color: A multi-tonal brown with subtle highlighting adds depth to the hair and gives the skin a balance of warm for a just-back-from-holiday look.
The style: To create the hairstyle, the hair is blown dry using styling mousse and thermal styling protective products with a diffused blow-dryer. Follow it up with a light misting of styling spritz and gentle scrunching with the fingers to add definition to the natural curl. Separate the curls with the fingers to ensure maximum movement.
The cut: Long, romantic, golden blonde curls. The cut is deeply layered and softly textured for lightness and movement.
The color: The warm golden blonde of the hair color with the darker scalp area give a natural sun-bleached look with defining highlights and depth.
The style: The hair is towel-dried and applied with protective products and styling mousse for soft hold. The hair is blown-dry using a round brush and curled with a large-barrel iron. The curls are styled with the fingers and a pomade or smoothing serum for added curl definition.
Layered Long Hair
The cut: The combination of a smooth, sleek fringe with the layered lengths gives a flattering look to long straight hair.
The color: The hair is a rich dark, chocolate brown with warmth from subtle highlighting.
The style: The hair is styled by applying styling gel and protective product for thermal styling then blown-out using a round brush at the fringe area and upper portion of the head. The ends are dried using a diffuser and the fingers to scrunch the length into soft waves. A touch of smoothing serum is then used to define the waves and separate the strands for visual interest.
