CAST Salon’s Lucy Cardoza created her Frankie collection, which illustrates the new look for men that reflects back to the days of early Elvis, James Dean and the Rat Pack. “Post-war to the 1960s, most men were manual workers with strong religious and family ties,” she says. “Hair was worn with such attitude.”In this collection, Cardoza’s styles encompass conservative influences, mixed with rock ‘n’ roll, and styles from the Cold War era.
This young New York Mafioso-style collection caught the judges’ eye when she was recently announced a finalist in the Australian Hair Expo Awards’ Men’s Hairdressing category. “"These 'old school' looks with new twists make men look really masculine and well-groomed—from the days when men carried combs and tidied their hair throughout the day.” To style the hair in this collection, Cardoza used EVO products.
