The Next Big Hair Trend is Here, And It's Not About Super Short Hair!

Another trend to look out for is a haircut. This is a haircut that looks good on people of all ages. It's a more chic undercut that still carries a strong edginess to it. The front length is at the collarbone and slightly shorter in the back but without the noticeable A-line look. This cut works well with some texture, such as light waves or natural curls. (No curling irons please.)

Looking at Fashion Week Spring/Fall runway hair styles, it's obvious
that this is what you should be heading towards.

And if you're the more daring woman - take it shorter. You will love yourself for it! Recently supermodel Karen Elson came into the salon for a cut with my mentor/co-worker Joey Martino. After a brief conversation, Joey decided to cut her hair shorter.

But it's not just a short bob... it's a cut that stops at the chin or jawline. Think the roaring 20's.

The catch is the edge where it has was more of a f**ked up feel. It's the only way I can describe it. 

As a hairstylist it's sometimes hard to describe a look. I can't name a technique, or name a tool, (it's not the thinning shears or razor with the guard). 

It's really a feeling, experience and sense of style.

When you think of it, it's perfect as we hit fall and winter with
coats, scarves and hats becoming part of our daily routine.

Here is Orlando Pita describing a version of this look for Carolina Herrera 2013 Spring/Summer at fashion week.
So if you are all about the trends... here it is hot off the press...or runway!
