Burberry Hair Look: Easy Like Sunday Morning

If you’ve mastered my ultimate nude look from the Burberry September ‘17 show, try Sam McKnight’s backstage hair look on for size to finish off the new season’s easy breezy vibe. Here, Sam talks us through creating the look at home.

Burberry Backstage Images

The Burberry SS’18 show, inspired by their heritage check, was a celebration of different textures and patterns. Backstage at the show, I created a totally honest and raw new nude makeup look to complement the collection, and Sam McKnight and his team created a hair look to match.

Sunday Morning Vibes

Sam’s vision for the show was to give the models laid-back ‘Sunday morning lazy hair’, with individual tousled and textured locks, with even the male models showing a hint of nonchalance with their styling. I love low-maintenance locks to complement nude makeup, so follow Sam’s steps to perfect this show style to finish off your Burberry look.

Get the look

Follow these steps to create Sam’s Sunday morning locks…

  1. Begin with clean hair.
  2. Liberally spray with Cool Girl by Hair by Sam McKnight to create texture with a matte finish.
  3. For frizzy hair, apply a touch of Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Crème where needed.
  4. Gather hair into a low pony tail at the nape of the neck and tie with elastic matching natural hair colour.
  5. For bobbed hair, reactivate texture with a light mist of water and once dry liberally spritz with Cool Girl by Sam McKnight.
  6. For men’s hair, reactivate texture with a light mist of water, once dry apply Magic Move Red for definition and rugged texture.
