Hair Expo 2001 we have the news on all things hair and hairdressing, we have the hair styles, the hair colours and the perming and straightening tips of 2001 for you to review. also plenty on the hot new trend of Hair Expo 2001 hair extensions.

The Looks:

Cuts were generally shorter and either heavily layered to the point of being almost disconnected (not blended) or the hairdressers were showing off the most beautiful of classic bobs. The images to the left from some of the winners show this classic shape in its latest interpretation.

The Hot New Trends:

The use of extensions to add colour to almost any hair cut was very evident at Hair Expo 2001. This trend is not for the shy, it is funky almost punky, with ribbons of the brightest colours inserted underneath the surface of your own hair so that they peak out from below.

This is not just fun it has some very particle reasoning behind it too. If you wanted to die your own hair these shades, not only could it be very damaging but would also tend to fade quite quickly, which are both non-issues with extensions.

But if you were after a fun colour for your own hair there were plenty to choose from too. Almost all the top hairdressing product manufactuers have been developing some very bright new shades. So look out next session as hair is going to be awash in colour in more ways than one!
