The ’80s introduced a subculture of hair and fashion encouraged by heavy-metal music. It was this decade of over-the-top texture, geometric shapes and mohawks that inspired editorial hair stylist Danielle Keasling as she created these finishes.

Keasling worked with two different textures in each model’s hair for a fuller, denser look. “I wanted the two textures to clash, yet harmoniously fit together creating textural interest at any angle.”

"I took this collection back to that era, but with a modern glam twist, by creating micro-crimped texture and soft wave patterns," she says. "I thought this collection would be best in black and white. I wanted people to see the beauty first and then relate to the era. I didn't want to cloud their image with neon lights and mismatched prints."
