A 'Mod' hair moment

As the 60's swing back into the forefront of fashion - with them comes the beehive, backcombing, bobs and bangs.

Mod hair is fast becoming the current hair trend of celebrities and fashion darlings... and what perfect timing to coincide with the mass of suede skirts and roll necks that have infiltrated the shops for Winter.

The 'mod look' is contrasting between short sharp cool cropped cuts - think of the 60's muses, supermodels Twiggy and Peggy Moffitt with Vidal Sasson's asymmetrical five point cut and iconic 'It' girl Edie Sedgwick, and big sexy backcombed dos with teased side swept partings, headbands and a ton of volume a la 60's bombshells and doe eyed fashion icons Jean Shrimpton and Brigitte Bardot.

Celebrities currently rocking 60's style tresses include Lana Del Ray, Cara Delevigne and Emma Stone.

If you aren't feeling going for a full on mod chop then create a 60's inspired look with a silk headband, black hair ribbon or a simple hair update... A chic fringe will transform your hairstyle and can be catered to your personal style and face shape. Go for sweeping bangs to add sass or brave a full fringe like British model and actress Karen Gillan.

We even offer a complimentary fringe trim service between hair cut appointments to keep your hair out of your peepers and looking fresh!

For a 60s style quick fix try our 6 steps to creating a beehive up do...

1. Prep your hair using a dry shampoo such as Kevin Murphy Fresh Hair, spray into the roots and rub well before brushing through. This will create texture and volume.
2. Using a fine tooth comb, backcomb around the crown area and then work from each side backcombing sections into the middle of your head to meet at the back.
3. Pull you hair round to left and secure with grips at the nape and up.
4. Gently brush your hair in the opposite direction, roll the hair under itself and pin again with grips.
5. Backcomb the front sections and tuck a few sections behind your left ear.
6. Add a spritz of
Davines Texturizer and muss up with your fingers for added texture, finish with a spray of Davines Medium Hold Hairspray.
