MEN'S COLLECTION: "Camolife" - Strong Parts and Sleek/Short Looks

By Lauren Salapatek | 06/12/2014 3:06:00 PM


Rugged Men in camouflage gear is the name of the game in this hair collection by Rokstar Salonz's Brodie-Lee Stubbins. Strong parts, distressed texture and sophisticated lines are seen throughout. Here's what Stubbins has to say about these looks:

1. What was the inspiration behind the shoot?

"Camolife is inspired by the camo print that seems to be inescapable in every clothing store most seasons. Trending colors and textures with mood."

2. What is the hair fashion direction for men displayed in this collection?

"In this collection, the hair on each model plays with rough texture and disturbed direction along with strong sophisticated part lines. Styling is the key to this collection."

3. What are the cutting and styling techniques used? Which products?

"The looks are all created by using scissor-over-comb and razor techniques to soften the lines and create focal points. Etching and pencil cutting with a razor is essential in this collection for adding distressed texture. I used Sebastian Texturizer to enhance natural movement in the hair and give it a rougher edge. I finished with the Sebastian Shine crafter for ultimate shine. The waves in Camolife are created with the Cloud Nine Micro Wand, my perfect styling tool for men's hair."
