FROM THE HAIR DOWN
2017 is here and I’m starting the year with a post all about gender fluid styles
When Toni & Guy Products asked me to be part of this campaign I thought it would be a cool way to challenge myself to bring you a few different outfits and hairstyles including my take on a gender neutral outfit.
I’m always pushing for people to be themselves and not to worry about what others think of you especially when it comes to what you wear and how your hair is styled. How I thought I would do this is by showing you how you can create three different looks using a black base with your outfit and three different hairstyles using Toni & Guy hair products.
So, I hope these three outfits and three hairstyles can inspire you to be a little more gender neutral with some of your future styles…
Starting with the hair in this first look I began by using the heat protection mist to protect my hair from the heat of the hair dryer which I use to get the height and volume I am aiming for with this style, I followed that up by using the styling putty to style up the textured look with height and volume, this is the hairstyle I will go for most days of the week.
Now as I mentioned in the intro I wanted to show you three different outfits using a black base and with this first look I wore a simple black skinny jean from River Island with an ASOS black roll neck jumper and a suede black pair of chelsea boots from ASOS also, making a bit of a statement with the double breasted rust red coat which is also an ASOS piece I really feel could the coat could be a gender fluid coat too. I completed the look with a long necklace over the top of the roll neck jumper.
The second look, again starting with the hair I went for a completely different style than my usual and decided on a messy hair down vibe using the styling fibre which is great for causal everyday textured looks.
Again with the black base but this time I went for a slightly skinnier black jean with rips from Liquor & Poker and a black long sleeve top rather than a t shirt. Footwear this time I thought would work well with the white and black adidas originals but the main gender fluid piece in this outfit is the pink bomber jacket which is also from Liquor & Poker and this 100% could be worn by either sex it is in fact a male bomber jacket but the colour and detail chinese stitching really makes this something your girlfriend/wife could steal from your wardrobe.
The third and final look for this post is one of my favourites! This time I was using the styling clay which is another of my favourite Toni&Guy products. I kept the textured feel, similar to look 1 but this time I pushed my hair back a lot more too give a more sleeker look to match the classier all black outfit. The clay works perfectly for this type of style and as I was wanting a more sleek outcome with the hair I set it using the flexible hold hairspray .
A black base again but I kept everything black this time with a black Zara t shirt, black trousers rather than jeans as it gives a more classier look and I love having the pockets at the side rather the front when wearing a long coat and also love the effect with when sitting on the boots, with the black trousers I wore black leather chelsea boots from Marks & Spencers rather than suede again to keep the slightly more classier feel and completed the look with a black double breasted coat also from Marks & Spencers and my go to round ray ban sunglasses.
