The collection, "Brace" showcases '80s British Youth culture,through UK 'skinhead' styling. Shot on location, this collection is emotive, captivating and made memorable throughout a range of original looks.

Inspired by a time and place in which the Lead Hairdresser of this collection Kieran Hanley was raised, and also the movie, This is England, Brace epitomises an era, whilst proclaiming impending men's fashion and hair trends.

More about Kieran Hanley:

"Six years ago I began my apprenticeship back in the UK, my grandfather was a barber in the British Army and I think deep down I was destined to follow his footsteps in some way. In 2010, I moved to Melbourne for a fresh start and quickly found my feet with Rokk Ebony. Ever since that point I have grown as a stylist with a list of celebrity clients, awards and being fortunate enough to educate others on an international scale. I have discovered my niche in cutting, particularly with men's hairstyling. I feel that my extensive skill set, incredible passion and unmistakable accent help me stand out from the crowd," says Hanley.
