The shake bob combined with colour gives definition and a modern edge to the classic bob.

Isabell Edet 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".

From 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".

August/September 2001


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 face shape.

These looks are never the same twice so don't even try!



VirtualHairCare predicts:

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.

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.

May 2001:

Australian 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!

Anyway here 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 Hair.

Feb 2001:

Check out 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.

As winner 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".

Jan 2001;

Rob Hastie and Tracey Colebrook of Shibui are predicting "a year of strong bold hair colour and the return of the fringe" for 2001.

"Deconstructed Bob's" (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".

Bennie Tognini 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.
