This fabulous stratospheric style with hair piled casually on top up to there, crimping in strategic places and wisps of hair on the forehead was one of the looks Nominated for the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) 2017.   It did not win. But it is a winner. Congratulations to Christian James of Shade Studio. For more NAHA winners for 2017 and 2016, put NAHA in to the Search Box, top left of this page, and scroll down a few pages.
