Considered a pioneer of the super hot and "hair contouring" trend that's been sweeping the red carpet, UK based hair stylist and art director at Charles Worthington, Marc Trinder tells Marie Claire just what the deal is with this flattering look...
"By using light and dark tones to create shadow and depth on the face, as well as applying colour in specific areas of the hair, you can completely alter either an entire face shape or specific areas.
"It is completely bespoke to each individual. We experiment with a different colour for different face shapes to see what tones might elongate or create a more oval shape on the chin, for example."
