Upcoming Winter Hair 2014 /2015
Hair trends change seasonally. In order to keep up (or stay ahead) of the trends we look to the collections released by our industry’s leaders. This season I had the pleasure of attending the Global Colour Event in Germany, hosted by our supplier Goldwell.
This season’s collection was named “Traditional Rebels”. Here is some of the basic breakdown for the collection:
Start with an inspiration, then deconstruct it. Preserve the essence, mix in some cultural references and then reconstruct it to create something new. It’s the hottest trend in fashion: taking elements from the past and bringing it to the future with a completely new twist.
Hair color follows fashion with a new and elegant palette. Beautiful monochromatic colors are disrupted by bands of deeply saturated and heavily pigmented shades, ranging from warm to cool neutrals.
We can showcase and underline our individual style with the “Bandeau
Technique”. A technique the Creative Color Zoom Team has developed
for the Traditional Rebels Collection. The bandeau by definition is a fabric,
which wraps the head or body to emphasize the shape. Becoming an
accessory or statement to the clothing. The bandeau in hair is the perfect
way to create a color statement and to showcase the shape of a cut or the
texture. Becoming an individual statement of its own
Cutting and Styling:
The “Bandeau Technique” works within the cut as well. Modern precision
is emphasizedby the circular sections of the bandeau as the points
allow the erratic round interior texture to become modern and unique.
The cuts are rounded but with angular elements which creates a perfect
harmony/disharmony effect. Interior layers were integrated to create a
movement and a new raw edge in each style. Show your craftsmanship
in each look by slice cutting, (deep) point cutting or freehand (slice) cutting
to give the cut a raw undone edge but with an unexpected elegance at the
It’s up to you.
