"I really don't see shorter hair as a trend for this season, but if your client is going to wear it, make it work. To make it great, it should be shiny, messy and versatile."
|Graduate designers from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco offered great fashion, and Tokyo for Workgroup LTD created stunning hair to go with their work.|
|"My favorite new cuts are short on the side and back, and long on top," said Jimmy Paul for Bumble and bumble, who led a team for Nanette Lepore. "It's a variation on Linda Evangelista's iconic cut. There is a real ease to this look, no hard lines, not geometric. It has nonchalance."||"This season we are going to see a rise in shorter hair cuts," says Edward Tricomi, who designed the hair for the Joanna Mastroianni show. "The great thing about these cuts is the amount of styling versatility."|
|"This is the year people can take advantage of short hair, as long as it has a line and a message," says Garren who, with his team, styled models for Anna Sui. "On this model, a heavy, blunt fringe really works. Short hair must have shape and products must be used to make it modern."|
There wasn't a lot of short hair on the runway for the Fall '08 season, but each look that did emerge made a strong statement. Nothing was left to chance-lots of product and prim and proper placement made every silhouette shown in this portfolio worth a mention.
