I cut Michael’s hair and gave him this Mad-Men-inspired hairstyle. He liked it so much that he wanted to suggest this hairstyle for a character he will be playing. We’ll have to wait and see about that. Keep in mind that something retro inspired can look really fresh.
The first time I cut Ioanna’s hair (a year ago), I cut it really short and saved her from a really bad haircut because someone had become super-excited with the thinning scissors… Ioanna wanted to grow out her short hair ever since, not because she didn’t like it but because she always felt that all the stages between short hair and a bob are the most interesting. And they are. So, after the short haircut, we cut it once more (wish I had pictures of that!) and six months after that the time for the bob came. Now, Ioanna has the thickest, most voluminous hair than any girl I have ever met. A blunt bob would be catastrophic, so we went for the most feathered version of the bob with a short side-swept fringe. And we both love it. Who said that a bob can’t be interesting then???
Two of my most beloved friends, Alice and Spyros got married this September. The wedding ceremony took place on a different day than the wedding party (and what a party!). Marina Stat did the make-up on both days and took the picture of me giving Alice’s hair its last touch-up before heading for the church. For the ceremony I gave Alice wavy, natural and carefree hair. For the party, I went for a Bardot-inspired, super-long, dip-dyed, wavy, low ponytail but didn’t overdo it at all with the height at the top, because we still didn’t want it to look over-contrived. I also let some wisps of hair in the front free to move with the wind and all the dancing and kept them natural wavy. It may sound all so simple, but plans for her cut and colour on these two days had started at least six months ago. I last coloured her hair four months before the wedding and let the sea and the sun work their magic on it during the time remaining. The last haircut before the wedding was two months before, so the hair would grow as much as possible and still look healthy. Fact: Hair grows so much faster in the summer! Now you know when to try this bob cut you are not so sure about…
Alice’s sister, Marianne was the only person capable of taking decent pictures at the party. Heroine!
Congratulations S&A! I am so, so happy you two met each other.
