Nordic violet.

Melissa's hair is very much like the Nordic violet and pearl blonde I used in Jasmin's hair for Naval Marigold.

I used Wella Illumina to tone the hair, refreshing the blonde in between colour visits. Not only does Illumina give a beautiful tonal and irrediridescent look, the shine on the hair is stunning.

To style I used Wella Perfect Setting and blasted the hair dry. I then used Thermal Image and created a wave with the GHD styler and brushed it out for a lived in effect.

Naval Marigold is a harmonious story inspired by the strength of naval hues and the warmth of garden shades. A trend prediction for spring/summer which is all about contradiction; a cool warmth and an androgynous feminity.   

Strawberry blonde with antique rose highlights and a whimsical blonde using washed peach and hints of Nordic violet and pearl. 

Hair, styling and photography: Megan Desmond. 

Models: Adrienne Nicholls and Jasmin Johnston. 
Makeup Artist: Sara Phanekham.

With special thanks to Melissa Findley.

Let me introduce myself!

My name is Megan Desmond and I am a senior stylist and also assistant co-ordinator at Hairroom Melboure in the CBD. I have been working here close to a decade and am much loved for my gentle and honest approach to hairdressing.

I also run the blog Megan & Melbourne and love to work as a hairdresser or stylist on shoots whenever I can. This is something you will be seeing more of over the coming years as I merge my passion for hairdressing and fashion into this blog and editorials for Hairroom.

I am also very passionate about all the products we use and sell here at the salon. We stock Wella SP, Wella Care and Styling, Sebastian, Nioxin, Macadamia Natural Oil brushes, GHD irons and dryers, White Sands and Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics.

I look forward to taking you on this journey with me and to share with you not only my work, but also my trend predictions, make up looks and promotions.
