cocosa.comss12 trends19Big HairFor SS12, big hair takes a modern direction. It's not about huge hair but about the subtle volume we saw on the Issa catwalk. The big hair here wasn't too literal - it was modern and fresh. SS12 is about big hair that anyone can wear.Wet LookJust-stepped-out-of-the-shower hair was all over the catwalks, with Alexander Wang and Antonio Berardi both backing the trend. This is a new, directional aesthetic for the SS12 season. Use a lightweight oil to avoid a greasy appearance. 1940sA modern take on 1940s hair was seen at Zac Posen, Prada and many more. It's a look that hinges off a clean, fresh approach to retro glamour. It's about the textural movement of 1940s hair, but the style should be finished off in a precise way.adornmentDressing the hair is an easy way to inject an element of trend. I opted to adorn the hair at the House of Holland show with barrette hair clips. The night before the show I spent hours spray-painting the clips to get the desired look.PasteLThis is a younger look which first surfaced for SS11 with the rise of London salon, Bleach, and pink-haired model Charlotte Free. For SS12, pastel hair will come in two guises - coloured spray all over the hair or a fine mist of colour.Adam Reed, creative director of top London salon Percy & Reed, puts down his scissors to talk hot hairhair trends untangled for ss12issaZaC POsENalExaNdEr waNGHOUsE OF HOlLANdTHaKOONinterview by: laura weir

It feels like the strongest show so far, I'm really happy with it. I'm looking forward to seeing the collection on the shelves. What's your favourite look in the House of Holland SS12 collection? The opening look [pictured right] - it just summed up the collection and looked wicked on the model, Josephine. Also, I'm really happy with how the shirting came out - the lightness of the fabrics felt fresh and new for us. I also loved the oversized ombré leopard print, which for the record was not cow print!How are you feeling mentally post-show? Exhausted, drained and excited all at the same time.And physically? Pre y good, considering most seasons I begin or end fashion week with the fl u.You've run the London Marathon, so which is more tiring, that or London Fashion Week? The marathon - nothing in life could ever be as exhausting as the marathon! I wish I could tell you I enjoyed running it. Luckily the satisfaction of telling people I completed it outweighs the pain. What gets you through fashion week? Berocca, my team, and a hell of a lot of white Americanos.How late did you have to work during the week? The night before the show I was in fi  ings until about 2am and then back in the studio fi ve hours later. We hope you didn't suff er any show-related injuries.

About three tubes - I like them both hot and cold. Did you manage to eat your fi ve a day? Defi nitely not. It's really hard to get fi ve a day when you don't even see daylight.You help to cure the poorly dressed. Have you ever considered a career in medicine? Absolutely not. Science was never my strong point.Who is your favourite Dr? Dr Dre.What happens now a er fashion week? We've already started sales, I have meetings, meetings, meetings and then we head to Paris for international sales. Are you taking any time off ?
