Like no other season, summer always instills in us the want for a change and something new. Quickened by the first rays of sunshine and cozy warmth, a new desire awakens - to change things and to even head out on an adventure.
It is the perfect time to bring a change: the visions for the hair trends of spring and summer 2009 by the Zentralverband des Deutschen Friseurhandwerks (ZV), the Association of the German Hairstyling Trade, are an ideal basis for this. The new creations demonstrate the virtuous skills of their makers and have the potential to become the classics of tomorrow.

From soft, flowing textures that are radiating natural wholesomeness, to luxurious retro looks that conjure up the glamour of days gone by all the way to extremely graphic looks that are futuristic in their expressiveness: Summer presents itself with a cornucopia of styling variations.
Styles for women are dominated by feminine big hair and pixies are back, bedazzling us with their unconventional and feisty charm. Men set their bets on surprising accents: Looks that incorporate skilled breaks of tradition through an artistic play with contrasts. Nerd style, Elvis quiff or perhaps vertical high hair? It does not matter as long as there is a casual and authentic appeal to it all.
A must for this summer: Highlights that provide at times subtle and every now and then bold reflexes while bringing out the glow of the base color; all together with shapes that are airy and vivacious. For hair looking as if it was kissed by the sun and caressed by a gentle ocean breeze.
