ROWAN MON­TAGUE

HAIR­STYL­IST

Mon­tague headed to the na­tion’s cap­i­tal to en­sure Nick Kyr­gios was cam­era-ready for this month’s fash­ion fea­ture (p136). “The scenery around Lake Ge­orge was beau­ti­ful,” she re­ports. “And Nick was a plea­sure to work with.” Who says noth­ing ex­cit­ing ever hap­pens in Can­berra?

WHAT ARE THE KEY HAIR TRENDS RIGHT NOW?

There’s been more growth, thanks to the rise of ker­atin treat­ments. They smooth thick, wavy hair and re­duce vol­ume and frizz, mak­ing longer styles an op­tion for those with curly, re­bel­lious hair.

ANY TIPS FOR GET­TING THE RIGHT CUT?

Men need ad­vice on the best cut for their fa­cial struc­ture, and how to main­tain it. Reg­u­lar vis­its to the sa­lon are vi­tal – I rec­om­mend ev­ery four-six weeks.

AND PROD­UCT-WISE?

Use a foun­da­tion prod­uct first to give the right sur­face tex­ture – I like Shu Ue­mura ‘Essence Ab­solue’ for thick and dry hair, or Kevin Mur­phy ‘Hair.re­sort’ for fine hair. Then, when you style with a clay or paste, you’ll need a lot less, it gives the hair a more nat­u­ral look.

YOU’RE ALSO A VINYL BOF­FIN. ANY NEW AD­DI­TIONS?

As well as clas­sics from The Bea­tles and Bowie, I fol­low any­thing PJ Har­vey or The War on Drugs do, and have just bought Ken­drick La­mar’s new al­bum.
