âI really donât 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.â
|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.|
|âMy favorite new cuts are short on the side and back, and long on top,â said Jimmy Paul for Bumble and bumble, who led a team for Nanette Lepore. âItâs a variation on Linda Evangelistaâs iconic cut. There is a real ease to this look, no hard lines, not geometric. It has nonchalance.â||âThis season we are going to see a rise in shorter hair cuts,â says Edward Tricomi, who designed the hair for the Joanna Mastroianni show. âThe great thing about these cuts is the amount of styling versatility.â|
|âThis is the year people can take advantage of short hair, as long as it has a line and a message,â says Garren who, with his team, styled models for Anna Sui. âOn this model, a heavy, blunt fringe really works. Short hair must have shape and products must be used to make it modern.â|
There wasnât a lot of short hair on the runway for the Fall â08 season, but each look that did emerge made a strong statement. Nothing was left to chanceâlots of product and prim and proper placement made every silhouette shown in this portfolio worth a mention.
