Moody Blues by Kieran Tudor

Moody Blues Collection extract taken from Behind The Chair:

‘Forget about rigidity, structure, formalism and order. Here we have a slouchy, chic, mix-and-match vibe. Somehow still proper, but with huge dollops of innovation and a fresh take on the standard beehive, blunt bob, shag and long layers. All doused in the dusky light of a midwinter afternoon – that time of exquisite anticipation between day and night.’

The ‘IT’ style

I would call this the extreme wig version of the ‘it’ style that you see everywhere, as in, the bob, one length, no layers with an added heavy fringe.

This cute look was done by Arturo Swayze  (editorial stylist) on Rila Fukushima (Japanese fashion model and actress).

Here’s another version I came across on Christine-lewis/tumblr which showed the similar look, sharper, stronger with a shorter fringe, love them! (Make up by Christine Lewis, Photo by Franklin Thompson)

Dekko’s Daily Grind ~ Nancy

Nancy came into Dekko wanting to donate all her hair to charity. She really wasn’t too worried about going too short so we decided to take all her hair off to chin length. I cut her hair with the razor to try to bring out any movement and wave that she might have in her hair. It was a good move, because as soon as the weight came off the hair, lots of kicks and twists came through in her hair which allowed me to work with it and create a cutesy messy bob shape that she could also wear smooth if she needed to.

Here’s Nancy before her haircut:

This is after the haircut, (sorry about picture quality in these) we styled it with some Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray and finished off with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray:

My Pick ~ Modern Bowl Cut

Really love this modern take on the Halo Haircut. Not quite as precise as the classic bowl cut, but I love this one because it’s abit rougher around the edges and the sides are abit shorter giving it a cross between a halo and a touch of mullet. Love it!

Unfortunately I came across this haircut but it had no credit for the haircut, and you know how that bugs me so much, I will continue to hunt down the producer of this great look and once I find out, I’ll let you all know..

Dekko’s Daily Grind ~ Emily

Sweet Emily has been a client of Dekko’s/mine since she was in her teens, back then she had long crazy thick hair that hung down her back. During the past 10 years, we’ve been changing her up with different looks, long layers, rocker layers, all types of fringes and lots of fun stuff with colors too.

This hairstyle was by far the most drastic change Emily had, we decided to go with a very loose razored organic look, working with the movement that was already in her hair. The haircut was done quite freely, and kept very unstructured, working the shape n  as the hair was drying. What we ended up with was this cute flippy textured asymmetrical look that needed no work put into it.

Here’s a picture of Emily before the haircut:

Thanks Emily for posing for us, we had fun.

Dekko’s Daily Grind ~ Daniela

I’ve known this crazy lovely mad cow for over 10 years and have had the pleasure in not only working with her but to

continue to have her in my life. Daniela used to work with us back in the Architect and Heroes days but has since gone onto being an actress, student and a perpetual mover!

Daniela grew her hair out and I mean ‘grew it out’, we hadn’t seen her for years and she came into Dekko Salon looking like Chrystal Gayle.

The first time we cut Daniela’s hair off we went for a messy bob, chin length. We wanted it so that she could wear it both messy and neater. Razored off through the ends with a lot of weight taken off, here’s Daniela’s first hairchop..

So anyway, 6months later Daniela came back in and we decided to go even shorter and to make it abit looser, funkier and more fun. Again we used the razor and shaped the back into the neck, made one side slightly shorter and left the longer look through the other side. It was so much fun, Thanks Luv’ for a fun time..

Such a photogenic girl! By the way excuse the wonky pictures on this one, just couldn’t get it straight : \
