What are some changes you have seen in hairstyling during the span of your career?
“Few days ago I spoke with Patrick Cameron about the trends for 2017 and are related to volumetric accessories, asymmetrical and even different, depending on each style, of course! Sophisticated technology has revolutionized our lives. The once-surprising and shocking has become part of the everyday. So now the handmade craft and objects once considered simple and everyday become more desirable, elevated through sensorial craftsmanship into a new form: premium humble. Hand-crafted aesthetics – a seemingly random flaw or fingerprint of personality – create a beautiful über-authenticity that drives out the ghost of the boring, over-groomed perfection. Instead, character creation is daringly “normal,” honest, uncomplicated, decidedly comfortable…and effortlessly you. REINVENTING THE PAST TO CREATE THE FUTURE! Traditional techniques – braiding, tapestry – are combined with 21st century cut and colour to create something truly stunning. A refined, soft simplicity in haircuts provides the perfect canvas for colour and styling to be perfectly matched to the individual.”
What are the trends you see related to hair-style for 2017?
“There’s a strong movement today towards a brave and bold individuality. Statement looks that come from the inside-out, bringing your inner life onto the surface. People want to push and intensify their personal character, going daringly and deliberately beyond a standardized beauty look. Colour turns into shape. Form is an illusion of the eye. Cut reveals colour – that in turn reveals depth and surprises, reacting dynamically with light to catch your eye. Strong, graphical colour combines with digital glitch aesthetics to turn heads.”
