on the above picture to see Anthony Naders latest Collection
at Ménage a Trois, Neutral Bay, Sydney, believes
"styling is defiant with free movements" on bobs and
shorter looks. "The exterior of cuts remains sharp or solid
but the interior has a softness and freedom in its texture".

the team at Maurice Meade in Perth we have this collection of
looks from their latest "Revival" release. With the
come-back of an even more glamorous 70's fashion look, the Maurice
Meade team have designed some awesome new styles for your hair.
This revival of the "Shake" is designed to make you
feel "stylish, gorgeous and sexy", and these do just
that! "The shapes will complement any hair type or face shape
and they are also easy to manage for a no fuss style".
No not the tangled type that we want
to remove but knoting your hair to form an upstyle for those of
us with longer hair is definately a look that will give your stayed
longer lengths some style. Whether it's a loose large knot at
the nape to keep your hair off your face or a series of twists
and knots pinned and secured to form an up-style it will give
your look a current flavour.
Which ever version you fancy don't
try and be neat, it is all about keeping a natural touselled look
to the finished style.
Dress the style for special occations
with small star clips and pins scattered at random.
Bobby pins tend to loosen and fall
out throughout the day, so try the finer old fashioned hair pins
to really keep it all in place.
Practice makes perfect, but when
your experimenting with this type of style don't get caught up
in the individual knot or section but stand back and look at the
sillouette as a whole and what it is doing to complement your
These looks are never the same twice
so don't even try!
Cuts will be generally shorter the 'bob' and the 'undercut' being
the shapes for mid to late 2001. Giving your look that 80's feeling
will be the key to getting it right. Checkout Shane Henning's
bob to the left to see what we mean. It's that asymmetric fringe
(bangs) that make it the look to achieve. The boyish undercut
as sported by the model below and left is the latest look for
our celebrities right now with Kate Moss, Fanni Bostrom and Amanda
Brown all sporting their own versions.
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
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.
HairExpo 2001 is over for
another year, and once again we have been treated to the best
the Southern Hemisphere has to offer. Here
are some of the winning shots from the new Australian Hairdresser
of the year, Oscar Cullinan and they are awesome!
Cullinan: The Man!
Fashion Week was bigger and better than ever and we thought
the person to ask about what's hot would be the L'Oreal Hair Director
for the L'Oreal Ready to Wear shows Kenneth Stoddart. Kenneth
predicted the trends in hair fashion so well last year that he
has also been asked to direct hair for the official opening ceremony
and the Alanah Hill, Bettina Liano, Sally Smith and Marc's shows,
wow is he a busy boy!
are his predictions; "the season tends to have a slight
80's influence only tougher, fringes will be big and haircuts
generally stronger and sharper. Undercuts and asymmetric are the
look for the fashionably brave. If your hair is long styles will
be rolled or pinned to appear shorter." So lets wait
and see if Kenneth is proved right in what we are all doing in
6 months from now. Kenneth still works in a salon when not doing
other projects and can be found in the Sydney salon Synergy
these new looks (bottom of page), from Anthony
Nader of Raw Hair, Sydney. These are his submission for
Hair Expo 2001, titled the Raw Collection, I think you can tell
where he got his inspiration from. Each year for Hair Expo the
best hairdressers from around Australia send in collections like
this to be judged by there peers. What this means is that you
can identify a hairdresser who has a similar style or sense of
beauty to your own, so helping you to make the decision of who
you will trust with your locks.
of 'Image of the Year 2001' at the Australian Hairdressing Industry
Awards with his previous collection we thought we should ask Anthony
what is about to happen to our hair. "Fashion for 2001
is all 80's style blouses with ruffles, soft fabrics and knee
high boots, but with hair keep it loose soft and feminine as women
today have no need to be aggressive in their look to assert their
position". Anthony is known for his low maintenance and
sexy styles and says "it still has to suit your face,
so I work with that first". On the colour side of things
Anthony sees "woody browns and toffees" applied
to all of your hair "in a solid fashion".
Tracey Colebrook of
Shibui are predicting
"a year of strong bold hair colour and the return of the
fringe" for 2001.
(that's hairdresser speak for the looks Kate Moss and Jennifer
Aniston are sporting of late) will be the shape of the year. Rob
had a few words of wisdom to share with you when choosing a hairdresser
to give you a deconstructed look; "Structure is easy,
it is what you learn firstly when training to be a hairdresser,
but unstructured cuts as in the deconstructed bob is much harder,
it takes a hairdresser a long while to learn how to break the
rules successfully. Pick a top salon that does things of the minute,
but is not ruled by it, so that you get a look that suits you.
Also look for someone with a few years under their belt who has
had more time to practice breaking the rules".
of top salon Tognini's gives
us the latest hot tips on women's hair:
"For women, texture is becoming
bigger with looser hair that moves. Whatever the length, hair
is not left straight, it is shorter from the top and extended
longer towards the perimeter. Colour should have lots of depth
with rich tones suited to your colouring and the shades are now
richer and stronger. Your hairdresser should be making sure that
they are not blowing your colour out to be too crazy but are working
with lots of pieces in undulating tones using a mixture of 3 colours.
The application of the colour is the key to allowing the look
to live in different shades with light throughout".
Thanks Raw Hair.
