Black and White by BUNDYBUNDY

Sixties hair
 
BUNDYBUNDY's latest trend collection
 
In 2006 the world of fashion is dominated by contrasting looks. Marc Jacobs, Comme des Garcons, Karl Lagerfeld, Victor & Rolf and Armani have one thing in common: they all work with the dynamics of black and white, oscillating between innocence and the mythical, sometimes frivolous facets of life.
 
A BUNDYBUNDY woman is sure to indulge in all these aspects - this multifaceted collection is dedicated to her. The highly innovative cutting techniques give BUNDYBUNDY's female customers the freedom of choice between a straightforward business look, a trendy styling or the diva look.
 
"Hairdo in progress" is the motto BUNDYBUNDY has just adopted: to deserve its name, every haircut must allow for a minimum of three different hairstyles! As Gertrude Stein might have put it: a bob is not a bob is a bob. Come on and join us - BUNDYBUNDY is throwing all conventional hair stylists' rules overboard! Nothing is impossible. BUNDYBUNDY is turning the industry's practices upside down.
 
BUNDYBUNDY's trends in cutting techniques
 
How to adapt the sixties look for the year 2006 - that was the question. In view of the latest hair mega-trend, the young and dynamic BUNDYBUNDY artistic team, headed by Hannes Steinmetz, dug into our corporate archives: it was back then that celebrated world-champion hair stylists Hans and Georg Bundy made an international name for themselves with innovative ideas and styling. Staying true to their belief in constant change, the new trend collection 2006 only vaguely resembles the design used back then.
 
Unlike in times past, layered and asymmetrical bobs and pageboy cuts now have a softer touch and the hair's natural volume is enhanced by supreme cutting techniques. However, these haircuts have clean lines and therefore translate the intense and stylish sixties look into today's world. Here's an interesting tidbit: Hans and Georg Bundy's couture concepts came to stay for more than four decades.
 
BUNDYBUNDY trend colors and hair care
 
In Austria and beyond, BUNDYBUNDY is always on the cutting edge of style. Therefore, BUNDYBUNDY's hair artists always strive to enhance each and every customer's innate beauty instead of suggesting a total changeover that might soon be out of style. For the 2006 season, BUNDYBUNDY suggests emphasizing your hair's natural color with top-of-the-line coloring products, transforming an average red hair color into a stunning copper red and a boring brown into a luminous chestnut. The latest trend in hair coloring at BUNDYBUNDY is called Colorpainting. We use up to six different shades of color to achieve a highly personalized coloring offering a uniquely fascinating look.
 
And here's more pleasant trend news from the world of BUNDYBUNDY: BUNDYBUNDY women are rediscovering the sixties hype in all its aspects: hair care, blow-drying and styling. There has been a growing number of customers asking for a unique "couture" hairstyle to honor special occasions. Elaborate hairpieces are requested frequently, and sometimes, customers ask for trendy hair extensions. Not surprisingly, BUNDYBUNDY salons are Austria's prime address for getting that extra special look.
 

Short Circle Cut

Short layered circle cut with a contour that follows the shape of the skull
 
This hairstyle (as well as the styles shown in photos two and three) is created using the same cut. This haircut is a short-layered circle cut with a weight line that follows below the parietal ridge and dips around the crown area to just above the occipital bone. The layered cut is textured to give a softer contour following the shape of the skull and minimizing the bulk of the weight line.
 
The hair color is a bold, neutral blonde: it's an ultra-pale shade that makes a great medium for the style. The styling is simple, consisting of blowing out the hair using a vented brush and a light hold product. A dab of smoothing serum applied afterward adds definition to the hair.
 

Haircut Styled for Maximum Volume

Here we see the short layered cut styled with maximum volume. In this hairstyle the hair is plied before drying with a firm hold styling product - such as a sculpting paste or gel - and blow-dry styled with a vented brush for maximum lift.
 
The fullness and volume create a soft, yet funky style. The post-styling addition of wax-based pomade can reinforce the structure of the style and add definition to the locks.
 

Hair Backcombed into a Roll

The last version of styling based on the same short haircut as photos one and two is a very carefully sculpted and structured look inspired by the "pompadour" of yesteryear. The hair of the sides, crown and nape are smoothed upward in a curve that follows the skull's contours.
 
A fringe area where the length of the hair is backcombed into a bulky mass and smoothed into a roll. This style requires liberal use of a strong, structure enhancing product (usually wax-based) and a finishing coat of hairspray to create a sleek, smooth finish and maximum hold.
 

Silky Glossy Red Hair

This photo and photo five and six are all images of hairstyles based on another cut. In this instance we have a shoulder length, razor-executed circle cut in a fiery red shade of color. The first style is blown-out smooth with a round brush and a medium hold styling product.
 
The brush is then used to flip up the ends of the style and create an asymmetrical hairstyle that is silky and glossy. A light mist of hairspray and the edge of a hairbrush or the flat of a comb can be used to keep the style sleek and smooth.
 

Red Curls

Red hair with curl created via a wet roller set
 
The second incarnation of the "red haircut" shows a "max volume" option for those who love curl. This curl can be created through a few different methods: rollers or styling appliances. The easiest and most long-lasting curl would be created via wet roller set.
 
After shampooing and conditioning, saturate the hair using a medium-to-firm-hold styling product. Divide the hair into slices and wrap the hair around small to medium rollers so that the rollers come to rest half-off base. Once dry, brush out the hair and style it as desired. A dab of smoothing serum and/or hairspray can add definition to the curl and reinforce the hold.
 

Smoothed Back

Red hair backcombed to create lift and smoothed back
 
This third style of the "red cut" is the most-structured of the three. The hair is divided into four main sections: top and fringe, left side, right side, and crown and nape. The hair is blown-out to a mostly dry state and then the hairstyle is constructed. Use a strong-hold product such as a wax-based mousse or similar style of product.
 
Start with the side sections and smooth them back toward the crown of the head and secure the hair at the crown. The next stage is to style the hair in the crown area and smooth it forward to curve along the side of the face. The final section in the top and front should be backcombed lightly to create a little lift in the front and then smoothed back to cover the crown and obscure the anchor points there.
 

Pageboy Cut

Chestnut brown hair cut into a pageboy
 
The rich, natural chestnut brown color of the hair of this model is cut into a pageboy cut. The hair is cut off to the base of the neck and it is trimmed to frame around the face. The fringe area is curved to hug the brow line closely. The ends of the hair are textured to create a soft line along the perimeter of the hairstyle.
 
The hair is styled by blowing out with a round brush using a smoothing serum and light-hold styling product. After drying and initial styling a dab of smoothing serum on the palms and spread over the head will enhance the shine and smooth finish of the hair.
 

Longest Lasting Curl

Medium hair with long lasting curl
 
This hairstyle takes the pageboy cut and adds volume and structure by creating masses of curl. The longest lasting curl is created by wrapping the hair on medium rollers and drying it. Direct the rollers to follow the contour of the skull. Once dry, brush out the curls and backcomb the hair to enhance the volume in certain areas.
 
A light mist of spray and scrunching will create definition in the style and add stability and structure. Avoid making the style too uniform as the asymmetry and rougher finish creates an edgy look that will better serve to update a classic hairstyle.
