Lob length, this length, is the way to go now, more than ever. It is more sophisticated and less boring than the long hair everyone has. These gorgeous curls were photographed backstage at the Intercoiffure America Canada Fall Atelier for 2016, By the Nouveau Creative Team “FEMinMen” Gender-Bending Collection, led by Perry Monge.

(Comments are appreciated on my blog and under photos on my website too.)  This wide crimped flat on top hairstyle from La Coupe’s iconic 1975 “Sleeper” Collection is one of my favorites.  It was the first time the crimper was used in the modern era, a 50 year old antique crimping machine then-hairstylist Elmer Olsen found in his Grandmother’s attic. Hair History.  Really.  For more and more versions on this iconic look, click HERE

Braids Wrap Around Neck Like A Sweater – 2016

Braids Wrap Around Neck Like A Sweater – 2016

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

The ends of a loose braid are wrapped around the neck to mimic a cable knit sweater.  Presented on stage by Goldwell USA at the Intercoiffure America Canada Fall 2016 Atelier, the texture was micro-crimped before the braiding. Nuances of ceramic pink with a deep silver and sky give this blonde with an ice silver background a little bit of subtle color that anyone would want, to make that little bit of stylish difference to this practical, pretty and fashion forward look.

Lace “Hair” Comes To The Head – 2016

Lace "Hair" Comes To The Head - 2016

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

A lovely lace look comes to the head, by Sharon Blain for the Intercoiffure Fall Atelier as part of her Twisted Aura Collection which wowed them at the Waldorf Astoria last weekend.  The collection presented on stage was inspired by Alexander McQueen after a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.  “I was desperate to re-create the looks for hair,” Sharon Blain informed the audience at her knock-out show.   Lace is everywhere right now, so why not lace on the head. To construct this look, the model had a cap placed over her head covering her own hair, the swirls and hair for the laced look were added just like a beautiful hairstyle which included, later, some unusual hair texture being added at the back.  To see more of all this brilliance, click HERE

Colorific Hair From Russia With Love – 2016

Colorific Hair From Russia With Love – 2016

Photo: Lion Photo

Colorific hair color from Russia With Love. The color is like a painting, as lovingly created as a work of art. Subtle, pretty, well done. Color by Irina Mikulo and Lerka Chernyaeva, who also did the haircut, both of Hair Fcker Studio of St. Petersburg, Russian Federation. The name, which started as and is still used sometimes, HairFucker Studio, changes sometimes to HairFcker.  It is a very controversial name, which must have been the intention!   Their videos and photos are getting noticed, for the hair.  This photo was found on hairbrained.com, one of their first fans in the US.
