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:

Oscars 2015

I wasn’t too inspired tonight with the hair to write a full post about the Academy Awards this year. So instead I pulled the top 4 of my hair favorites. Although I have to say that Lady Gaga’s segment brought tears to my eyes as did John Legend and Common’s.

Rosamund Pike with her undercut and updo combo. Haircut by Tina Haukjaer Anderson.

Rita Ora looking fabulous, much better than her 3seconds on Fifty Shades of Grey.

Emma Stone, it really doesn’t matter what her hairs like really cos she’s so cute and gorgeous no matter what.

Viola Davis with her natural curls, flying under the radar, but I spotted her cool hair!

My Pick–Short Bob

Yet another cute bob to help all you people who are thinking of changing their looks this year and are wanting to choose a variation of a bob. I love this one because it short, sassy and sexy, it has plenty of movement and also has that feminine short choppy fringe, Lovely!

Golden Globes 2015 Hair

‘Downton Abbey’ certainly comes to my  mind with this years Globes hair. I noticed there were a lot of waves going on, polished neat hair that shows the 20’s influence’s coming through.   I have to say when it comes to Finger Waving, no one does it better than those hairstylists who coif the hair and wigs on Downton.  To me, Hair dressing, especially finger waving is a special talent that less hairdressers are able to achieve. I am always amazed when I’m watching the hair on the show,‘kudos to those talented people.

With that in mind, here are some ‘Downton’ inspired looks that I loved. My top favorite is Jessica Chastain with her fabulous wavy one sided classic look. Others shown are Alison Williams,  Ruth Wilson, Zosia Mamet, Diane Kruger and Amy Adams, all with their classy wavy hair.

Other styles of hair that I admired from tonight that stood out for me are – Rosamund Pike with her perfect Vidal Sassoon Bob cut by Tina Haukjaer Anderson , Sienna Miller with her razored Bob, Helen Mirren with her classic short hairstyle, Emily Blunt with here braided hair ‘do’, Kelly Osborne with her purple hawk, and just because she’s cute Emma Stone with her messy bob. I chose these because they are not the usual ‘Award’ show hairdo’s so always lovely to see.

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 ~ Flick

I love this one because of the simple 2  color mix as well as the sexy  sweep of the hair with the natural looking flicks at the back.One of my favorite techniques is to see the combination of black with brown or in this case, reddy brown, it gives it a basic yet striking contrast and would be great for any client who wants a subtle color change. This haircut was done by Antoinette Beenders who is Aveda’s Global Creative Director. Nice!!
