James Rowe's dressing and styling tutorial combines two looks that James has used in fashion industry shows, which is a much different market to hair shows. These are looks that incorporate great, fundamental techniques as well as useful insider secrets and tips from the session world. Session hairdressers typically use assistants to assist in applying product, holding hair in place during tricky and complicated manoeuvres and to enable speed during busy photographic shoots and catwalk shows. It is recommended that an assistant is used to recreate these looks.

The first look is a playful, off-centred, classic session Bow. A complex method simplified by intelligent process and anchorage. The second look is a quick-change session look - dramatic, dishevelled and youthful.
