Collection Inspiration | "Our collection was inspired by a recent trip to Eastern Europe. While in Bolgaria we came across this beautiful ancient metal plate that was in one of the museums and took a photo of it. From this photograph we created a print which then inspired the whole collection which is about ancient rituals and symbols as well as a mixed metal colour palette," Co-Directors and Co-Owners, Hayley Smith and Laurie Smith. 

Hair Inspiration | “We wanted to create a helmet like shape teamed with hard partings inspired form ancient Eastern European statues and textures,” says Original Mineral's Global Creative Director Janelle Chaplin.


How-To Steps: 

1. Prep dry hair with a light spray of Original Mineral Know Knott Conditioning Detangler. 

2. Section hair into specific straight-line partings on the curve to create an unusual geometric zigzag shape.

3. Apply generous amounts of Original Mineral Style Guru Styling Cream, compacting each section down tight to the head shape.

4. Finish with a heaving painting of Original Mineral Frizzy Logic Shine Serum.
