Big hair with bundles of touchable texture was Gary Murdoch's vision when crafting these breathtaking afro hairstyles
BBH fired some quick questions at Gary and here's what he had to say about working with afro hair...
How long have you been styling afro hair?
I have been styling afro hair for over nine years
Why do you like working with this hair type?
Afro hair has a fantastic texture, which gives you versatility. Stylists often make the mistake that afro hair isn't versatile, but that's not true. You can create great shapes because of this texture
How are you inspired?
I am inspired by everything around me, all the time. I think it comes subconsciously as I absorb things when travelling, working and playing
What are the benefits of using hair extensions?
Extensions are obviously ideal for adding length and texture, but I like to use them for adding vibrant colours, which can be difficult to achieve on afro hair
Who would be your dream client and why?
Rihanna has a great style and is a real trendsetter, so I'd definitely like to work with her
What are your must-have products when styling?
Arosci Seven Day Straightening Lotion is a must-have product. It creates a beautifully smooth and straight finish
