In the last few years hairstyles have been undergoing a true “metamorphosis”. These transitions are a result of the specific influence
of major celebrities and media foci. What had become a trend toward long flowing locks was abruptly redirected by the dramatic cropping
of Victoria Beckham’s locks into her now, signature “Pob” (a concave bob). The new direction was affirmed by media darlings Katie
Holmes and Natalie Imbruglia, who also sheared their longer locks for shorter, sassier and chic bob styles.

Even more stars have furthered the trend by taking short hair one step more toward the scalp: celebs like Rihanna and Kristin Kreuk
have decided to expose their ears with cute, short crops.
Because of these influences and the new trends in shorter styles, New York master hairstylist, Christopher Naselli, has taken upon
himself to create a collection of hairstyles for the 2008-2009 Winter season, exclusively for Hairfinder.com. Says Naselli, “The
whole collection, in my eyes, was something that I wanted to be a bit masculine but yet very feminine; kind of a take back to the
60’s and the 80’s; kind of disconnected heavy perimeters with a softer interior. If that makes any sense.”
It does and the looks are strong: bold angles and cut lines with a touch of sixties “mod” and eighties “pop”. The looks are forceful,
yet feminine, simple yet detailed and defined. The collection takes a single model and transforms her look, step by step, from a neck
length bob to a gamine crop. The collection illustrates the drama and metamorphosis that lies in potential in every woman.
Christopher Naselli is the owner and operator of one of the most respected salons in New York City: salon forty east third. He has
more than 15 years of professional experience within the hairstyling industry, impacting mostly in New York and Los Angeles.
He has a loyal following among New York’s elite creative community and his clients include film and television actors, sports figures,
top fashion and news editors. Among his past and present celebrity clients are Rosie Perez, Kristen Bell, Justin Chambers,
Margaret Cho, and Jennifer Carpenter.
