Chaves asked for something neat and messy before I cut his hair and that’s exactly what he got. I point-cut a lot so he can mess it up with his fingers. For the first look I didn’t use any products and for the second a bit of paste was used, followed by messing it up with my fingers. The cut looks equally good, therefore proves its versatility.

I started turning Klea into a blonde sometime ago, so this time we only did a root touch-up and a toner afterwards. The toner gave her this beige/sandy blond. I straightened the hair completely and then used a really thick curling tong on a few strands to give the hair a bend and make it look natural (and more interesting if you ask me). Straight hair is everywhere in fashion but even if you flat yours out with a straightener, spending these extra five minutes in pulling it apart a bit will result in a fresher take on straight.

For the second look I pulled the hair tightly back into a middle parted low ponytail and hid the elastic by wrapping a strand of hair around it (and pinning it underneath). Middle parted or deep side parted, the low ponytail is one of the hottest looks for this and the next season. Marina Stat did the make-up drawing inspiration from the multi-coloured madness that were the eyes at the Chanel s/s 2014 rtw show.

It’s been such a long time since I cut a boy’s hair this short, so I was very happy when Takis agreed I could do it. I worked with clippers using a bigger comb for the top and no comb at all for the back and the sides, fading between the two lengths. I finally point-cut the front with my scissors.

I cut Julianne’s hair and then styled it. Because it’s naturally wavy, I decided to do a wavy hairstyle and work with a curling tong. Marina Stat did the make-up and we decided to do a distressed prom queen. Now if you look at recent fashion shows and magazines, it looks like the curling tong has gone on a hiatus. That’s why I preferred to leave some natural frizz in the hair, rather than have the perfectly done waves. It must look natural if you use the curling tong, so you have to 1. alternate bigger and smaller pieces of hair and 2. wrap parts of these pieces (in different directions) around the tong, not the whole of them. Definitely leave some of your natural texture in there, even if that means frizz will be visible.
