Inspired by the Sunset

The last two months have been non-stop for us. Photo shoots in London, delivering shows and education to salons around the UK and a few international shows thrown in for good measure.

Hooker & Young

Michel Young and Gary Hooker bringing you the latest on all things hair…

We’re recently back from Moscow, where we were invited to put on a show at the Russian Hairdressing Awards. The night was incredible and it was a real honour to be part of such a wonderful event.

We created an avant-guard show of 15 models – a tall order to say the least! Completely worth it though, when you see your vision and hard work on the runway in front of thousands of hairdressers. We just love flying the flag for British hairdressing.

With summer just around the corner, we thought we’d bring you a little something to get you in the mood. As much as we’d like to, we can’t transport you to a beach or make you a cocktail right now, but what we can do is tempt you with these glam after-beach waves! And an utterly-gorgeous hair colour.

Our model is the very beautiful Alisha Cowie, who just so happens to be the current Miss England. She recently swapped her long dark locks for this very on-trend Moroccan-inspired look. And we love it.

Jonathan Turner, from Hooker & Young Jesmond, has been looking after Alisha’s hair during her reign as Miss England and created this gorgeous textured bob, which we think looks absolutely stunning.

It’s also really versatile; a relaxed, yet sophisticated, style that can be worn looser and more disheveled for daytime and fuller, with more body, in the evening.

The beautiful multi-tonal colour was created by Paul Ferguson & Loren Williams from Hooker & Young Ponteland, using a colour palette inspired by a Moroccan sunset over a desert landscape.

Smouldering, mysterious and every inch gorgeous, we’re just loving Alisha’s new look for summer 2019.

Michael Young and Gary Hooker run Hooker & Young, with five salons region-wide.
