It’s not that usual for a hairdresser to do regular, seasonal fashion-led shoots, so in this instance, Hession Hairdressing is the exception, rather than the rule. The second-generation family business prides itself on providing “hair for every occasion”, and went for some very wearable looks in these modern takes on classic hair styles, helped, of course, along the way by the amazing photography skills of Barry McCall and styling by Sinead Keenan.

The pics get a really cute touch by being styled in the oh-so-very-now Instagram style, which I think is really refreshing for an editorial shoot! It makes things seem that little bit more relaxed. And, having been in Hession (styling a slot for Xposé what feels like years ago), I can tell you that the guys are really up to date and so slick, but at the same time there’s a real traditional Dublin hairdresser feel to the salon, which I love – it hasn’t got the airs and graces that you might associate with this kind of creative output.

To celebrate their new seasonal shoot, Hession Hairdressing is offering a full hair makeover – that’s cut, colour, the works! – to one lucky Fash Mob reader. To enter? Simply leave a comment below! To be eligible for the competition, you must like both Fash Mob and Hession Hairdressing on Facebook. (Please note: your Facebook / Twitter must be active and you must be contactable using it!)

Is it just me or is this shot so Grace Woodward?
