Life through a lens

Suzie McGill

Mull-et over

"A mullet-inspired look with length at the back and added texture on top for lots of movement. I love that this style looks slightly ‘wet’ in appearance which gives it character. A texturising spray such as a salt spray is key to finish this kind of style."

Party at the back

"Taking inspiration from the firefly/wedge cut but with a more contemporary finish, this style is iconic and speaks volumes. It’s all about precision with this look to create a stunning and stand-out shape."

Black and blue

"These shades are a match made in heaven for me as they provide the ultimate mirror-like shine. With this hair look we wanted to enhance the colouring with a super sleek and short bob but we kept the hair longer at the back to create a unique, graphic shape. It really was all about the lines with this cut. We used the colour and styling to enhance the cut, but also the styling and cut really enhances the colour too. Everything works together."

The power pixie

"It doesn’t get much better than this –a killer short crop paired with vibrant pieces of colour. We wanted the blue to stand out as much as possible on this crop and therefore teamed it with a beautiful icy grey tone and some texture."

Sunshine shades

“I became a finalist for HJ’s Colour Technician of the Year category, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional, for the first time with this image in 2020. I absolutely love the mix of tones, and I was planning to do something completely different, but I followed my gut and changed it to this on the day. It just proves you should always follow your instincts."

Powerful pink

"It’s all about the colour with this look. Featuring beautiful pastel pink and subtle copper tones, the seamless blend gives this hair colour a rose gold and opulent finish that’s simply mesmerising. We teamed this with a statement side parting and styled with mega volume to really show off the two colours together."

Bobbing along

"This textured bob is such a beautiful look that will come back in style time and time again due to its versatility. The key to this look was creating texture into the cut through layers and different lengths and enhancing this with matte styling products such as pomades to provide a matte yet messy style."
