Nicky Oliver opened the doors of his spacious five storey salon back in 1990 in Manchester’s eclectic Northern Quarter. Now firmly on the map as Manchester’s leading salon, Nicky Oliver and his team enjoy both national and international acclaim. The Saturday Telegraph Magazine featured Nicky as one of Britain’s top colorists. Check out two intriguing collections from Nicky Oliver, Manchester.

Sophistication by Nicky Oliver

For this collection I was inspired by computer technology, the workings of inside the machine. The Matrix had a direct impact on me and this is where my idea first began. From here I looked at what makes technology work and and the how the chips, wires, mother boards and other parts interact with each other. I brought in a cyber feel to the collection by using minimal, but structured garments.

Contemporary by Davina Graham

I have always appreciated the style and grace that film stars carry,  especially from the 1950’s and 1960’s. It was this effortless sophistication which I wanted to take though into my collection. I decided to give it a contemporary twist to bring the styles into the modern day and show that glamour can work just as effectively in the twenty first century.
