Pixelated Hair Color

Came across this new color technique recently that was created by Spanish hair research and development company,  X-Presion. What started off as a color mistake, is now all raging over the internet. I thinks it’s really creative, although not sure how many clients will be asking for this one, but seeing anything other than Ombre is fine by me!

So what do you guys think of it?

Here’s some example’s from X-Presion and if you want to read the originally article and interview, here it it:

The latest Bowl Cuts..

Not all bowl cuts look like your mum stuck a bowl on your head and cut around it, I’m sure we’ve all experienced a hairstyle like that when we were young! Or maybe just in England where short hair on a younger kid seemed to be more common, and then with my poker straight Asian hair it was a recipe for disaster back in the day.

Anyway, fast forward to 2014, I came across these adorable multi-tonal ‘bowl cuts’, taken from Hairdresser’s Journal. The hairstyles were done by  Tyler Johnston and Lesley Jennison. The photographer was Jack Eames. The precise technique and skill required to create these modern, cute looks are undeniable. Well done, as we all know how hard these looks were to achieve.

My Pick – Green

I will always remember being told when I lived in Hong Kong that wearing/having green in or on your hair means that you are a ‘lady of the night’ (their words not mine) Since then I’ve always been conscious not to have green in my hair, whether it was extensions (which I had then) or even flowers while living in Asia.

But, fast forward 20years and with all these gorgeous green hair pictures floating around, how can we even resist! Maybe we should just be ‘ladies of the night’ even if for a short stint..could be quite interesting!
