The Tikadi Essex salon in the United Kingdom specializes in hair color— but, the High Street hot-spot has also gained a name for its creative cutting and fashion-forward styling.

In this, the Essentia Collection, Tikadi stylist Hayley Quinlin created four looks designed to showcase glossy fnishes.

Quinlin was inspired by soft, feminine silhouettes that exposed simplistic forms. Through a series of texture-enhancing stylers and thermal tools, these structured and versatile shapes were designed to reveal the vulnerable nature of beauty itself.
