This coming seaon is all about the individual, it's about stepping out from the crowd and being seen for your style and uniqueness, says Uros Mikic, Creative Director of Kinky Curly Straight and MATRIX Australia.
During a recent trip to New York, Uros was heavily inspired by the true nature of the city. He fell in love with the variety of cultures, fashion and people roaming the streets, and the individuality of each person he met. To capture this, he brought these sensations to his new hair collection, Streets of New York, which focuses on the original, the individual, the ‘standing out from the crowd’ style of a man.
"In my cuts and styling I was working with texture and form, creating sharp geometrical shapes to achieve a clean look, and introducing intriguing details like braids and sharp lines in the fading to make the cuts unique and bespoke for the individual," he said. "I wanted to create a strong disconnection in the styling of the cuts by way of severe fading or by styling that replicated disconnected segments, to enhance definition between long and short, soft and sharp. The cuts and styling I’ve selected are to create a lean and tall masculine shape – perfect for the modern guy."
