One Look, Two Ways-The Sonnet

Chandler Rollins | August 28, 2013 | 2:24 PM

One look, two ways. The Abba Creative Team’s 2013 collection features versatile haircuts. By adding texture to these polished looks, a playful edge is achieved.

The 2013 Abba collection is a story that finds harmony in poetry, romance and design. Like the sonnets they are inspired by, each cut has a repetitive element with a romantic feel.

One Look, Two Ways-The Sonnet SMOOTH LOOK The shape is soft and feminine, but commands attention through structure. The soft sweeping fringe adds mystery and romance to the shape. This mid length cut sits no longer than the shoulder area, and sweeps gently across the face resulting in a very sexy sophisticated shape.

TEXTURED LOOK Intensify her look by creating ethereal volume on the maximum side and a sleek, polished effect on the minimum side with decorative pins.


One Look, Two Ways-The Sonnet SMOOTH LOOK This short cut presents as a sophisticated, classic look until one quick adjustment in the placement of the fringe turns it into a sassy bold statement.

TEXTURED LOOK Adding permanent texture to this cut creates versatility and adds playful femininity. Using differing rod sizes in an overlapping pattern and placing strategically in the crown area creates natural-looking, easy movement.
