Global hair editorial guru, Kevin Murphy, is heading back home to Australia to direct the hair for the Myer SS15 Fashion Launch Parade.
The much-anticipated event will be held at Carriageworks in Sydney on Thursday 7 August, showcasing the latest looks in fashion, hair and make-up to a VIP audience.
This year will feature the latest designer labels to join the Myer family, including, By Johnny, Little Joe Woman and L by Lisa Ho, with acclaimed fashion designer, Alex Perry, opening the show. The event will also see the Face of Myer, Jennifer Hawkins, walk the runway, as well as Myer Ambassadors Kris Smith and Kate Peck.
Assisted by a team of 24 Session.Stylists, Murphy will be responsible for the creation and execution of the hairstyles of the parade’s female and male models, with James Nicholson and Nathan Gorman at the helm as co-hair directors. The hair look will see pops of pastels incorporated, including candy pinks and purples, baby blue, lemon and mint green, with the aim of amplifying the depth of colour in the SS15 Collection as well as complementing the soft makeup look.
“I’m very excited to be working with Myer on this prestigious event for the sixth season,” says Murphy.
“Spring Summer collections are always playful and colourful, so it really is a time when we can experiment with hair on the runway, which I’m looking forward to.”
“We wanted the hair look to be whimsical and romantic, taking inspiration from water and the ocean”
“Soft pastels and hair colour is really the trend of the season, but we wanted the look to be classic still, so the style of the hair has notes of the 190s and 1940s”

Step 3: Loosely braid both sides back toward the nape
Step 4: Stitch with hair elastic, rolling up away from hairline, toward the nape. The aim is to create a Katharine Hepburn silhouette

Step 6: It’s time to get creative with colour! Pick your favourite Color.Bug ($24.95) and rub into the hair, then finish with Shimmer.Shine ($39.95).
