They pride themselves on attracting highly qualified international professionals from London, Milan and Paris with their reputation for being synonymous with superior quality and style.
This Spring/Summer season House of Ernest is going retro and bringing back the 70’s.
The Studio 54 era is heavily featured in this new season collection from House of Ernest; a collection which features bold colours and specialist techniques and includes five signature looks. Trends from the past are re-imagined and reborn combined with a modern edge.
Styles that are timeless and classic like the white blonde Marilyn Monroe ‘cotton candy’ look receive a nudge to the boundaries of hair design when they receive a twist in the form of playful colours like ‘lip-me lavender’ and ‘bluebell madonna’.
The inspired House of Ernest stylist team together with Artistic Director, Nakia Stevens, fused fashion and styles reminiscent of the 70s with the hair trends of the moment to develop this collection.
“This collection is definitely all about colour. Coppery and reds tones are really popular right now and are vibrant colours for summer. In the ‘zest of both worlds’ style we added a romantic, bohemian feel by incorporating a smooth look with tousled ends,” Nakia said,
“Clients usually go lighter in summer so we’ve also included a number of cool, blonde looks which we can adapt to suit everyone.”
‘3D iconic’ has been added to the collection, which has been a bold move for house of Ernest, the inspiration comes from the 1974 structured wedge by Trevor Sorbie for Vidal Sassoon.
“We wanted to do something innovative and daring so we recreated the structured wedge by master stylist Trevor Sorbie. Our sensational Stylist, Greg Churchill, spent hours perfecting the cutting technique to deliver a modern-day interpretation of this unique look. We then combined the cut with a new 3D colouring technique,”
“3D colouring adds another whole dimension to the hair. It was originally adapted by women in Europe who wanted all eyes on them,” Nakia said.
Managing Director of House of Ernest, Marie McCrystal-Jones, has said she is proud not only of the inspired stylist team but also of the new collection which is a modern collection with flair and a distinct basis in 70’s hairstyles.
“Our fabulous new collection is characterised by high volume ends, bright, bold colours and tight curls – House of Ernest’s Spring Summer 2011/12 collection has a style and colour for everyone,” Marie said.
