Illuminate by Nikki Porter @ Rubi Hair

An experiment with light and texture was the cornerstone to this Nikki Porter’s beautiful black & white collection. There is an emphasis on the head shape and how to morph and play on it.

This theme of texture was also threaded through the styling with the use of a double denim androgynous feel infused across the collection; this was then reflected in the hair, complementing it well.

Using a combination of braiding, jewellery and paper to create ‘Illuminate’, touches such as leaving regrowth to elicit more texture within the look and creating a grunge feel were used.

The inclusion of a haircut and color combination really defined the head shape, and the variation of using paper and crocheting hair through holes in the paper, produced an undone messy frizz to the look.
