A new collection by Aussie salon Orb Hair & Beauty extends a pop culture metaphor to glorious lengths. BY Karen Ford PHoToGraPHY BY daVId MannaH The Glam collection from Down Under salon Orb Hair & Beauty of New Farm in Queensland, Australia honors the decade that yielded a range of durable style trends, including glitter rock. “Glam is the perfect name because we wanted to show a contemporary collection with glam ’70s influences,” says Deborah Paton, Orb’s owner. Paton teamed up with Orb Senior Stylist Keith Siong to create this collection, exclusive to American Salon . The team was inspired by the variety of styles the decade offered, from feminine to androgynous. “Hair was styled with volume in different places to reflect some of the shapes and trends,” Paton says. Texture was achieved with triple-barrel curling irons and texture setting, a technique where each section is backcombed before being ironed and brushed out.
