Session stylist Blake Henderson used Fudge Professional to style the hair looks for the Daniel W Fletcher AW23 Show. His inspiration was Teddy Boy Hair of the 1950s. Here’s how he did it!
Daniel W Fletcher‘s collection consisted of 9 different suits, created in partnership with Huntsman Savile Row, who provided the tailoring for the collection. “The inspiration behind the hair looks was the sleek Teddy Boy hair of the 1950’s but with a modern twist”, explains Blake Henderson. “The Teddy Boy style is also a big inspiration behind Fletchers collection and decision to partner with Huntsman Savile Row, as Savile Row were behind the initial Teddy Boy craze back in the 1950’s.”
Blake used a variety of Fudge Professional styling products to create the Teddy Boy inspired look. He combed back and slicked down the hair with a generous helping of Fudge Professional Hair Shaper. This was distributed evenly throughout the hair to provide the hair with extreme shine and hold. He used a diffuser until the hair and product had completely set. Once slicked back, he held the hair in place using Skyscraper. To achieve the finish he used Hed Shine Spray to ensure a slick, shiny finish.
Models with longer hair started with two horizontal sections. The top section was then sicked back, following the same method as the above. On other models, front framing pieces were twisted round into spirals and set into place on the models forehead.
Whilst the Teddy Boy hairstyle usually has a high finish, the look Blake created was a modern interpretation of this, completed with twirled face framing pieces and shiny finish. This modern twist on a traditional hairstyle captured the essence of Fletchers collection, taking a traditional tailored suit making it for the modern day.
