CARLY

CARLY – every time she comes in to see me she has a different hairstyle, from long to bob to this little cute longer pixie. She looks fabulous with all lengths and is so photogenic. Always a pleasure Carly. #razorcut #pixie #davines #pliablepaste #movement #beforeandafter #sfstylist #asianhair

Dekko’s Daily Grind ~ Waves

Jeanette came in with a one length bob and we decided it was time for a change and to take it short. Hair was cut using the razor, the back and one side were taken quite short while keeping the length and weight on the other. Her natural movement just automatically fell into finger waves so we just encouraged them by pushing them in and using Davines strong hold cream gel to keep them in place. Thanks to Jeanette x

My article in MHD’s new blog!!

Thank You to MHDProductions (MyHairdressers.com) for featuring my article about scissor cutting versus razor cutting as one of their articles on their brand new blog. Myhairdressers.com was founded in 2007 and specializes in online training taught by England’s top names in hairdressing.  MHD has since attracted numerous international hairdressers to help support and nurture talents around the world, and now  I am honored to have worked with them by writing hairdressing articles for them since they started.

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)

My Pick ~ Precision Cut and Color Combo

Lovely precise graduated bob/pixie shape haircut on Asian hair enhanced by the mixing of colors – Brunette with Cobalt pieces streaking through it. Lovely work!

Men’s Stuff!

Cool stark strong images for men’s hair by Lucas Dowling. Photo’s taken by Nicole Corbett. Photos from Hairdresser’s Journal UK.

Excerpt from Behind The Chair:

‘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.’

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 : \

Akin Konizi

Came across these strong looks on Hairdressers Journal recently and thought I should share them with you.

Akin Konizi is co-director and creative force behind the successful hob salon group. Akin’s vision has brought hob salons to the forefront of the industry and in 2005, Akin was awarded London Hairdresser of the Year at the British Hairdressing Awards. This was Akin’s first nomination for British Hairdresser of the Year.

Since then, Akin has achieved outstanding success in the prestigious awards. Winning the coveted British Hairdresser of the Year title, two years running in 2008 and 2009.

“The mood for this year’s collection was inspired by strong hard signature geometry evolving into a softer, more wearable street look. In this collection Akin described these looks as Yves Saint Laurent 80’s tailoring, with and androgynous yet glamorous feel.”
