The latest K.MEN collection, MODS AND ROCKERS, begs us to take a deeper look at originality. Drawing inspiration from the 1979 movie, Quadrophenia, in which one of the actors speaks out about making a stand for individuality versus conforming to a particular ‘type’. This series of styles embraces all types of men and adds a modern, unique edge to the classic era’s looks.
Heavily inspired by the idea of a ‘modern age mod’ alongside a new ‘refined rocker’, our looks were created as a montage of 60s cool interspersed with nods to the 80s.
- Prep the hair using STIMULATE-ME.WASH and STIMULATE-ME.RINSE.
- Apply THICK.AGAIN to the hair for hold and blast dry.
- Use a large tong to bend the hair in different directions until you’ve styled to your desired result.
- Finish by applying ROUGH.RIDER to break up each section. For a different finish, try using NIGHT.RIDER or FREE.HOLD.
