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:
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..
Back in my day in England it was known as the ‘Purdey’, named after Joanna Lumley’s character Purdey who wore this hairdo on the TV show – The Avengers in the 70’s. Also known as the classic ‘Halo’ made famous by Vidal Sassoon’s.

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.
And here are some different views of Emily’s finished haircut:
‘Lucas Dowling of Mieka Hairdressing in Australia took home the win for the 2013 Australian Hair Fashion Awards Men’s Hairdresser of the Year, continuing Mieka Hairdressing’s record as one of Australia’s most highly-awarded salons.
The inspiration for Lucas’s collection comes from the “Teddy Boy”—a British sub-culture of the 1950s. Dandy represents the style of the “dandies” from the Edwardian period; they inspired the “Teds” and fueled the style of American rock ‘n’ roll since its birth in the ’50s. The hair adopts a progressive masculine feel including precision barbering, heavy fringes through to natural curls and quiffs, which are embellished by textured and smooth finishes.’
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 : \
