The Swirl

In this styling tutorial Trevor Sorbie’s Director and Head of Education, Ryan Forsythe presents a more editorial style, perfect for photoshoots or fashion shows, recreating a look from his recent collection ‘Grey Area’. 

The Swirl is a strong graphic look, using stronghold gel to create the continuous swirling motion on sides of the head. The inspiration for the style came from crop circles and Carl Krull’s  line drawing. 

In the video, Ryan will run you through the essential steps to sculpt the hair consistently and with ease, from wetting it through product application and recreating on the other side, maintaining balance within the style. 

Aside from carefully choosing the model and her hair of the right thickness, Ryan utilises colour and dark roots to create contrast within the style and make the shape really stand out.
