Not content with just being a hair salon, #BLOW is here to push your boundaries with its new retro sci-fi shoot. As the only Manic Panic salon in Europe, award-winning #BLOW is not so much a mad hatters as a mistress of fantasy with most of Scotland under its spell.

For its latest photoshoot, #BLOW transformed its Shawlands salon and training academy into its very own spaceship. Taking inspiration from retro sci-fi creatures and high-fashion femme-fatales, #BLOW styled its girl gang of bloggers and regulars in some of the best of Scottish design from Isolated Heroes to Ryan Cowie and Trash Rack, and finished the looks with some retro meets futuristic hairstyling, mixing Manic Panic colours to create modern-day Jetsons and Barbarellas.

Shot by Erica Von Stein and styled by the #BLOW team, the models had exaggerated styles to match their out-of-this-world hair colors, custom created using Manic Panic. Glasgow's Academy of Makeup team split the girl gang into two groups featuring bright geometric shapes and contoured glitter faces to create the fantasy look, inspired by Star Trek and retro science fiction.

As Europe’s first and only Manic Panic Colour Asylum, #BLOW has experts when it comes to styling and creating unique color mixes. The Manic Panic collection has over 40 colours that can be expertly blended in-house to create a range of looks from pastel shades to rainbow brights. In the latest shoot, #BLOW showcased its range of talents by creating everything from deep petrols, rich oranges to peachy pinks.

Working with Scotland’s hottest photographers, influencers and fashion designers, it’s the creativity of this Glasgow salon that’s captured both Manic Panic and the world's attention.
