Inspiration. Short hair is making a comeback for 2018. This short soft sassy style has style. “The textured asymmetric layered hair was razor cut and colored in tumbled reds and coppers,” said Vivienne Mackinder, who knows how to make an asymmetric cut look soft and feminine, not hard edged at all. The hair was painted with slices of color intensities and free hand painted with the copper and reds by Joico.  How to get this look, check out Vivienne Mackinder Workshops, CLICK HERE

This short ruffle-y cut, super soft, pretty, easy, was created by Jerome Pisonneault for the opening of La Coupe’s Salon in Toronto. In 1977. The back went up at the back, to fit in with the high ruffled and frilled collars so popular that season. The front fringe was cut asymmetrically, shorter over one eye, with wisps strategically cut into the hair all around the face. For more details and more Toronto Cuts, click HERE
