New Victorian Hair Inspired By A Hat - 2017

This “New Victoria” hair got a full page in my column of the March  2017 issue of Peluquerias Magazine.  “It was inspired by the shapes of women’s fashions in the Victorian age,” said Jovan Hampton of the Susan Alon Salon in Los Angeles. “I wanted the look  to be strong but feminine.  The braided bang came across like the no-fuss brim of a hat and I piled the hair on the top as if it could have been flowers.  I wasn’t aiming for perfection; the natural movement, an undone-ness was more important.”

 Holiday Hair Idea: Regal Crown Braid - 2015

This ethereal look shows many different textures while still keeping a soft, effortless appearance, by Alice Ness, an educator for The Temple, a Paul Mitchell Partner School.   After micro crimping the bottom portion of the models’ hair, everything was pulled up into a regal crown braid. For another texture element, the top of the hair was curled and styled to give volume and height. Created at a Modern Artist Session in NYC, this is a great holiday hair idea.
