st kilda hairdresser's spellbound - a whimsical colourful journey celebrating bold felinity by Dani Blakeley

Behind every Yoshiko Hair collection there is an ideal not always related to hair, which is basis of a theme. Yoshiko Hair Salon Director and L'Oreal Australia Colour-ist Ambassador Dani ofter draws her inspiration from spheres outside the hairdressing world. Although these collections are fashion forward, they are relatable to consumer based hairdressing. It is very important to Dani that new techniques are developed in the process. For educational purposes and exciting clients / hairdressers alike.

Inspiration for this collection was drawn from patterns seen in feathers and fur. As with the Bird of Paradise from the PNG. These birds are very colourful and textured. "To be natural yet unnatural in their appearance" Dani. In the cuts we see softened undercuts and lines. While screen printing and freehand colour techniques help give a natural fee.

Inspirational Spellbound has been featured in magazines around the globe. Including gracing European covers.
