Press already this year has been sensational for me. From appearing in weekly’s like CLOSER MAGAZINE and LOOK magazine to monthly’s ELLE magazine, VOGUE UK and NEVER UNDER DRESSED as well as an overwhelming amount of Industry Press.
WHOCANCUTIT.CO.UK Wrote a fantastic feature on me at the beginning of the year, including some of my top tips for Spring/Summer, see below.
2014 is finally here but last year was one to remember for so many reasons, not least the gorgeous red carpet and catwalk hair that inspired us all and the countless new products and tools which hit the market to help us all create fabulous hair.
It was also a great year for Angel Montague-Sayers, Art Director at Sally Montague Hair Group, Derbyshire, who was named 2013 ‘IT Girl’ at the Creative Head It List and was a finalist at the 2013 Shu Uemura: Art of Hair Muse Image Awards and in the Hair magazine Backstage Stylist category.
She looks back on the memorable year.
What was your hair highlight of 2013?
I loved seeing models storm down the runway with short, choppy punk inspired wigs. I certainly didn’t expect it for S/S14 – I love the element of surprise that Fashion Week brings.
What was a your favourite red carpet look of the year?
I adored the hair Nicole Richie rocked for the Met Ball back in May. I thought it looked stunning against her complexion and worked great with the burgundy lip.
What would you say was the best product of the year? Cloud Nine’s new must-have Magical Potion, which is a lightweight, conditioning spray to be used pre blow-dry. It lowers drying time by 50% and protects against heat.
Who was the most stylish celebrity of 2013?
I love Suki Waterhouse’s style. Her fringe is perfect and she looks amazing on the ELLE magazine January 2014 cover. I am a massive Arctic Monkey’s fan and love Alex Turner’s style revolution. At the moment he’s channeling a dapper 50s film star, which is my favourite era for men’s hair.
What can we look forward to in terms of hair trends in 2014?
I’m a fanatic about braids. Luckily they’ve freshened up for S/S14 and are now coiled around the head, which instantly remind me of Heidi in the Swiss Alps! 70s curls made a few appearances at Fashion Week and at the other end of the spectrum, sleek ironed hair could be making a comeback for the summer months.
And finally what is your top hair tip for the readers?
Replace high, head-pinching ponytails with a cool, low maintenance alternative. This season is all about low, lazy-looking ponies that instantly update your look and can be worn in a variety of ways. To nail this trend you must keep texture to a minimum and not over-fuss with curls or waves. Another tip is to drop each curl into the palm of your hand and scrunch, when using a wand. This helps sets the curl and helps improve the shape.
