Crimping, curling, straightening, extending. Yes, the skills of the hairdresser are many and varied - and the stylists at Acutabove are certainly put through their paces when it comes to the fashion shoots for Strawberry Line Times. This month they took our two models back to the 1940s with stunning affect with Chloe’s blonde bun a complex texture of intricately woven hair while a synthetic bun roll was used to create Indie’s Victory Roll to give height and stability.
