How to Copy 90s Grunge Hair at House of Holland Spring 2013

Give Your Hair a Messy Kick For that House of Holland '90s Grunge Vibe

House of Holland's Spring 13 collection was inspired by '90s disco grunge, with TV references taken from My So Called Life and model Erin Wassen, so it's no surprise the models' hair matched that messy aesthetic. As Henry Holland himself said: "The House of Holland Girl has developed an attitude problem". Adam Reed for Percy & Reed led the BaByliss team backstage at London Fashion Week to create a look that was feminine with an edge: a bold centre parting and a messy kick to give the hair movement. To find out how to create the style yourself and shop the products you'll need, just read more.

  • Use the BaByliss Boutique Italian AC Dryer 2400 (£74.99) to rough dry the hair, then create a bold centre parting.
  • Spritz Oribe Dry Texturising Spray to add volume and give a dry, matt texture.
  • Spray sections of the hair with the Percy & Reed Session Hold Hairspray before using the Babyliss Boutique Soft Waves Tong to give the hair a kick.
  • Smooth the roots and crown of the hair with Percy & Reed Finishing Polish to add a sheen and give the hair a slightly dirty look, as if the hair was in its third day of wear.
  • Pin the hair at either side of the head with bobby pins (you can spray the metallic shades of the collection for that extra effect) and secure subtly at the back of the head to give lift at the crown and make the hair look as if you've just taken off a hat.
