Henry Holland Style

Hey!! I haven't blogged in so so long, I've just been so busy with college that I just couldn't find the time to blog about anything. So I thought I'd get back into the swing of things by posting about something quite simple but definitely FUN, one of my favourite fashion designers and one of my biggest style icons...Mr.Henry Holland. Enjoy!

Henry Holland
Henry Holland is a fashion designer based in the UK, he was born in Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester and moved to London to study at the London College of Printing. After graduating with BA (Hons) in Fashion Journalism he got a job working as a stylist and fashion editor for magazines such as Sneak and Bliss, all before hitting fashion designer stardom in 2006. Henry gained recognition with his 'Fashion Groupies' t-shirt collection, which featured a hint of 80's bold and colourful-fashion rhyming slogans. He hit mainstream when designer friends of his wore each others t-shirt to bow at the end of their shows that season, the two were non-other than Gareth Pugh and Giles Deacon.

Now you've had a little insight into the past of Henry Holland, it's time to talk style. For me, Henry is honestly quite spectacular when it comes to fashion style! he knows exactly what works on him and certainly isn't afraid of a bold statement or never-ending patterns. He is all what London fashion is I guess (I'm not from or live in London) his style is now and somehow the future also, he is quite the trendsetter, trust me, he is electric and brave at times but wears everything with pride and confidence and that is why I love Henry Holland so much. Below are images of my favourite outfits worn by Henry Holland...

Also I personally think Henry with glasses is better than Henry without glass?

The Legendary Quiff

You cannot post about Henry Holland and not mention his iconic quiff. Literally ahead of fashion, his dress sense, his celebrity friends, the quiff standing tall is what Henry Holland is known for. And when I read that when he had his hair slicked back and everybody ignored him because they didn't realize who he was, really made me laugh. His quick-wit humour is also a reason to love him. If you're interested in getting a quiff like Henry's then click here where he explains his daily tutorial. For my quiff I use the following products...

Label.m Honey and Oat Shampoo and Conditioner, £12.25 and £15.15
These are two of the nicest things I have ever smelled in my life, and would recommend these products to anyone, great choice from me if I do say so haha! Also the best products I have tried for getting hair products out of my hair and for leaving my hair feeling soft, fresh and with a healthy shine.

Professional Touch Salon Styling Mousse £2.00 (roughly)
This mousse I guess would be classed as like drugstore standard, unlike the Label.m products I own, however it is the best mousse I have ever used, and I have used quite a lot of mousses, anyway I know by all means that I can get a better mousse and at some point I will, but for now this is fine and I'm really used to using it, anyway it's worth about £2. I have read reviews about this product that aren't the best, but I find it leaves my hair voluminous and not dry and hard like the other mousses I have used. Anyway it's worth a try, you never know you might like it.

BaByliss Pro Speed 2200 £25.00
This honestly isn't that bad of a hair dryer, and honestly when I purchased it I wasn't expecting too much however it's better than I did first imagine. Again I know that there are much better hair dryers but again definitely worth the £25.00 Once the mousse is in my hair, I blow dry my hair into a vertical position, enough so that it doesn't fall down when the hairdryer is turned off. 

Label.m Matt Paste £22.75
Again the best product I have used to shape and construct my hair into place. The price does seem quite expensive, but it has lasted me since just before Christmas, early December I would say and I'm still not that close to finishing it yet, so in that respect it's worth it I guess, I just look at it the better quality it is the less you need at a time. Also after getting my hair cut, with this stuff, I don't even need hairspray to hold my quiff in place. If you're wondering what I ask for when I get my haircut, I get short back and sides but with a little length kept on the top. The sides I get faded from a 2 down to a 0 and the top cut in layers to add a little definition and messiness I suppose. Finally I have it cut shorter at my crown and gradually longer towards the fringe, to get that growing quiff effect.

Wella Silvikrin Classic £2.99
When needed I keep it simple with the Wella Silvikrin Classic and again I have used many different hairsprays but still find the cheaper one the best. The hold is the best and the actual size of the can is quite impressive. Although I do have to point something out, and that is when too much is used, it leaves your hair looking greasy and your hair goes all hard and crispy...really unattractive. Just thought I would let you all be aware of the dangers. OK I may be over-reacting.

Well that is it, I hope you enjoyed my post about Henry Holland and I won't leave it this long before uploading another post. Please remember to follow me on Twitter and Instagram etc. my links our on my homepage, and if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment.
