Make Mark Hill part of your daily hair routine and you’ll not only look better, but you’ll also feel happier and more confident knowing you’ve got glossy and healthy locks. I can hear the compliments already…

Britain’s favourite celebrity hairdresser has recently sent me 3 of his new products – including the NEW Styling Primer, the Freeze Hold Spray and the NEW XL Volume Amplifying Shampoo – and challenged me to recreate 3 of my favourite AW15 hair trends using (naturally) Mark Hill products.

AW15’s shows heralded glossy locks, messy plaits at Chanel, poker straight hair at Tommy Hilfiger and Cavalli, slick side ponies at Donna Karan and jewelled hair accessories at Dolce & Gabbana.

Scroll down to see how I recreate 3 of my favourite Fall/Winter15 hair trends.

Center-parted, pin-straight hair style is huge come Fall and with a few hair care & styling tips you’ll be easily recreating this look at home.

Fifty percent of this look is choosing the right shampoo and conditioner. And if your hair tends to be flyaway like mine, use frizz-reducing products. Hallelujah for the newly launched Mark Hill Styling Primer and the Freeze Hold Hairspray that helped me beat freshly shampooed hair get in my way. And yes I did a little desk dance to celebrate my victory against my stubborn, frizzy hair.

  • Towel dry your hair and apply the Styling Primer evenly throughout. This lightweight formulation builds the perfect foundation to style from, providing texture and grip without overloading. The Styling Primer includes heat protection, leaving hair in perfect condition for heat styling.
  • Continue by applying your usual styling products and then dry as normal.
  • I suggest to straighten only the ends of hair to keep it from falling flat.

Let’s face it, it is not always easy to recreate the intricate, flawless hairstyles we see floating down the catwalks at fashion weeks. But if there was ever a time to brush up on your hair braiding skills it’s right now! Braids are a big deal this upcoming season and they tie in perfectly with the 70’s trend.

The Grecian braid works as much at a wedding as it does on the beach, or with a pared-back boyish outfit. The trick is not to have it looking too done or hairsprayed to death.  Extra loose, lived-in looks with plenty of wisps floating around the face are what we love.

  • Wash your hair with the NEW XL Volume Amplifying Shampoo to add strength, body and bounce leaving your hair thicker and fuller. This moisture rich shampoo is packed with active ingredients, including Marine Collagen, which help to improve your hair’s thickness, strength and overall volume without overloading.
  • Continue with XL Amplifying Conditioner for maximum bounce and body and dry as normal.
  • Remember it may take a little practice to perfect a Grecian braid, but there are tonnes of tutorials online to help brush up your braiding skills. Finish with the Freeze Hold Hairspray to ensure your braid will look great all day long.

From precious bouquet of roses to golden grapes, Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter15 catwalk was a triumph of jewelled brooches and pearled headbands. After all the runaways are where designers’ wildest ideas and most imaginative visions come to life. Just look at those jewels!

  • To recreate this look you’ll need a cheaper alternative to Dolce & Gabbana’s pearled headband – head over to your local Accessorize store if you don’t own a bejewelled hair piece.
  • I wanted the hair to be curled but still feel slightly undone and easy at the same time. I like the return to very simple, soft looks we are seeing this season that don’t look over polished or styled. I used my fingers and a wide tooth comb to twirl the hair around the headband – the hair still feels very lived in and has a little glam attitude.
  • Finish with the Freeze Hold Hairspray for a long-lasting hold. Once the hairspray has set, re-brush the curls at the back of the head to ensure movement.

I seriously can’t get enough of these looks. Have you got a favourite? Let me know in your comments below. For more details about Mark Hill or to buy, visit their website here.
