Automik, the new collection by British hairdressing star Ken Picton, showcases thick texture and hues borrowed from a warm winter hearth. By karen ford PhotograPhy By andrew o’toole Ken Picton’s new collection, Automik, seen exclusively on these pages, was originally shown at the 2012 British Hairdressing Awards, where Picton was named Wales and Southwest Hairdresser of the Year. “We wanted to create a very autumn and winter feel to the hair so we felt different tones of burnt orange would bring the collection alive,” Picton says. “Add this to the multitextured finishes and it creates on-trend images that make you immediately want to touch the hair.” Picton used a variety of styling techniques to create volume and texture, including crimping, double blow-drying and backcombing. In a nod to trends spotted on the winter catwalks, the collection includes new takes on the braided updo. “The braids and bouncy curls also tie in perfectly with the re-emerging evolution of bohemian chic, as it was embraced by the likes of Isabel Marant and Just Cavalli,” Picton says.
