Beauty Tribe: Q&A with Terri Robertson-Kirkwood


Say goodbye to beach waves and embrace a more groomed but still textured look for winter, according to Terri Robertson-Kirkwood, the creative director for Aveda.

Here Terri describes how textured hair becomes more polished this season, and her take on the latest hair trends.

Q: What was your inspiration for the look?

A: Women in the street inspire me, especially in Sydney. I also draw influence from high-end fashion campaigns, French Vogue and what’s happening around the globe but I feel we are not slaves to fashion or trends in Australia, we have our own identity.

Q: Talk us through the looks you created for the David Jones AW15 Fashion Launch.

A: There are two key looks this season: a side swept, low-pinned pony and a loose, tousled style. The texture is soft and light and is a nod to the beautiful textures showcased on the runway this season. Follow the step-by-step guide to recreate the looks here

Q: What do you think of the latest trends?

A: Braids: So over them. They’re fun but not current. We are moving on from the boho look and more towards edgy and groomed.

Wet hair effect: Belongs to summer. 

Buns, knots and ponies: I love them all! I think ponytails will stay low and buns are also sitting low and not as messy, more structured and neat.

Bangs: love!

Bobs: They have graduated to a longer style, and are either up high on the jawline or below the shoulder.

Colour: In winter, girls experiment more with stronger colours and although everyone can play with colour it doesn’t have to be the entire head, you can slot it in with just a panel. Jewelled tones replace pastels, and richness is the key.
