Earlier in the year i-D Magazine approached Tina Outen with the idea to commission a series of hair tutorials unlike any other. It seemed natural for the two to draw on their shared punk roots and so joining forces Tina Outen and i-D Magazine present the series Hair i-DIY with Tina Outen.
Starting with Tina’s distinctive eye for styling & colour, the i-D archive, London and its sub-cultures, Tina devised her top three inspired looks and demonstrating that today’s trends are often a hybrid of styles Tina shows her hair hybrids in the form of Rockstar Rudegirl, Pretty Punk & Surfer Grunge. Tina’s Rudegirl has a polished, modern, rockstar finish, her punk has a pretty Harajuku twist and her grunge girl is healthy and surf inspired.
Keeping the styles fit for i-DIY Tina uses colouring methords and styling products that can typiclly be found or made at home. In each episode Tina shows how to re-create the style, how to make your own products and how to colour hair using household items such as beetroot, food colouring and fabric dye!

1970s Kings Road punks with a nod to the Prodigy’s Keith Flint, a gang of Rufio style lost boys walked for Katie Eary’s AW14 Menswear show, the ‘Firestarter Hair’ courtesy of none other than Streeter's Tina Outen.
The initial reference came from the designer and an image by famed 90s female photographer Corrine Day. Working closely with Katie Eary, Tina then sought inspiration from the colour palette and print designs in the collection. Having mixed a ‘Fire Gradient’ of suitable hair colours, the look on each model was carefully tailored to suit the individual and complement the clothes. Tina also hand painted patterns from the collection onto hair pieces for the Mickey helmets and where extra height and length was needed on the the boys 'wings' , Tina used weft to finish the look.
