In between owning his own salon, Kinky Curly Straight, winning countless awards, and flourishing in his role as creative director for MATRIX Australia; Hairstylist Inspired by my recent trip to New York I fell in love with the variety the streets of New York had on offer. The soft, the elegant, the tough and the edgy fashion, lifestyle and architecture.

I wanted to play with NY variety and the different looks, forming them into strong structures and then deconstructing the looks to achieve softness and movement with a 1970s bohemian-inspired look.

The cuts have an element of disconnect to create a strong feel while the styling keeps it feminine and soft. It was fun to also incorporate strong men’s barbering techniques like fading into the styling to achieve a harsh, edgy shape.

The shapes were built with texture and volume to create bigger and fuller styles. I used a variety of curling techniques to achieve different textures which enabled me to mould into the desired shape.

My Urban Queens wear soft subtle colours, sun-kissed highlights reminiscent of the sunny, easy-going 1970s bohemian days.

Cape Town:Stormy clouds encouraging attitude galore with this soft undone cloud of hair that plays with texture and structure.
