issue ten : the icons & iconoclasts

In the run-up to launching our tenth issue, I was looking for iconoclastic collaborators to work with. Naturally, Tabitha James Kraan came to mind. An industry leader in effective, luxury, organic hair care. TJK has been breaking the rules for more than 20 years in her quest to deliver a salon-quality range that was kind not only to our hair but our health and that of the Planets too. We decided on a competition to find our new hair icons. The muses were chosen on their hair type alone – demonstrating that TJK products do not discriminate against any hair! Each winner received a complete product set which they were asked to use in the run up to the shoot (and beyond).

I’m delighted to introduce you to the new hair icons. Sally, Jo, Jemma, Aliya, Anoushka and Agatha. They travelled down to London from all over the country to have their hair transformed by a hair icon! We drew on inspiration from some of the most iconic hairstyles of the 20th century and gave them a modern twist. We left the makeup simple and contemporary to let the hair, and the women, shine.

Spoiler alert! We even got a sneak peek into a product prototype for their long-overdue Sessions Stylist range. Keep those peepers peeled all your sessions stylists, something exciting is on the horizon!)


Sally used the Scented Organic Hair Oil treatment overnight and washed her hair with the Amber Rose Hair Cleanser.

The Amber Rose 4-in-1 Conditioner was used to finish and volumise the hair, followed by a TJK prototype styling spray to volumise and mould the hair while being finger-dried.


Jo’s hair was prepped and primed with 4-in-1 Conditioner.

Dry Shampoo Fair was then applied to the roots to pad the hair out.

The 4-in-1 Conditioner was used once again to smooth and dress the finish.


For Aliyah’s look, the Scented Organic Hair Oil was applied and worn lightly. The 4-in-1 Conditioner was then applied to dress and finish the curls.


TJK Dry Shampoo for dark hair was applied to volumise Anoushka’s roots.

The 4-in-1 Conditioner was smoothed into her mid-lengths and ends to add beautiful volume and texture.


Jemma’s hair was washed using the organic Hair Cleanser.

Tabitha then combined the 4-in-1 Conditioner & Scented Organic Hair Oil to dress Jemma’s hair, keeping it natural and softening the shrinkage.


Agatha’s gorgeous red hair had a pre-wash treatment with the Scented Organic Hair Oil, followed by the Clean Shampoo and finished with Clean Conditioner. The 4-in-1 Conditioner was then applied to protect the hair before blow-drying, and also used to finish the hair for final styling.

Khandiz used Twelve Beauty Skincare and Ere Perez cosmetics throughout.
