So there's a man called Barney Martin who you may or may not have had the pleasure of meeting/hearing about. He has a little hair salon tucked away in Surry Hills and is Pantene's Expert Stylist because he's rather handy with a hairdryer (and all the other tools that mega famous hairstylists use). He's back in his homeland at the mo, creating hairstyles with Sam McKnight and the like (a bit of rhyming never goes amiss on a Thursday afternoon) for LFW.
On Tuesday, he worked with international stylist Malcolm Edwards to create the jaw-dropping Issa style that used more product that he had ever seen. Translation: product volumes that are beyond the realms of our imagination. Try it. Z'here . . .
STEP 1: Blow-dry hair upside down using lots of mousse to push the roots up. (Try Pantene Sheer Volume Body Builder Mousse, $6.99 or Frédéric Fekkai Coiff Strong Hold Volume Mousse, $46.)
STEP 2: Next, section from the recession of the hairline (about eye level) to the crown; then take this triangle of hair and pin it out of the way.

STEP 4: Backcomb the front section of your hair to create the quiff (we added a sponge to keep the lift).
STEP 5: Then braid the hair from the pony at the top, knot and pin into place.
