Fusion by BUNDY BUNDY
The new BUNDY BUNDY trend
Once again, the very first to translate the latest trends into hairstyling fashion are BUNDY BUNDY, the leading Austrian hairstylists. This time they've picked up the in-word fusion. Insiders have been hearing the word repeatedly - especially backstage at the top designer shows in New York, Milan, Paris and London. What does fusion mean? Fusion is the refinement of the ordinary, creating an unprecedented, excitingly fresh style.
The new BUNDY BUNDY look calls into question all of the previous conventions. For example, what is the evening hairstyle for 2002 and what are appropriate hairstyles for the office? The BUNDY BUNDY hair professionals manage this balancing act. Through their perfect mastery and intensive analysis, they set the fashion between optimal innovation and wearability.
Now, with the presentation of these styling ideas for the fall/winter season, the BUNDY BUNDY style is obvious. All the old clichés merge, that's the pioneering character of the latest BUNDY BUNDY look.
After seeing this presentation, it'll be clear that a page-boy cut doesn't have to be plain and a mohawk isn't necessarily a punk haircut. This step was made possible by BUNDY BUNDY's continual pursuit of the most advanced cutting techniques and the world's best styling and coloring products.
And BUNDY BUNDY handle a fashion novelty like hair-pieces in a playful and avant-gardistic way. Instead of the usual manner of just attaching pieces of the same hair color, the BUNDY BUNDY design team had the idea of implementing provocative techno-colors as a contrast and styling element to the chosen basic hair color.
The new BUNDY BUNDY shades and cuts
The only thing that stayed the same this fall/winter season at BUNDY BUNDY is the usual luxury service they offer their elite and upcoming clientèle. Did you notice that the young woman with the mohawk and the diva with the wavy hairstyle are one and the same person? The BUNDY BUNDY principle provides that every haircut must facilitate at least three styling variations, which allows every client to indulge in topsy-turvy creativity.
And as far as coloring is concerned, the BUNDY BUNDY coloring experts have developed new streaking techniques That cast an iridescent sheen to the hairstyle. Strands in honey and amber make blond hair more interesting. And with rosewood and panther-black, darker types appear mysterious and trendy.
Female Mohawk Style
Let's take a walk on the wild side with this faux Mohawk style. Created from a base of a contoured shag hairstyle, the hair is laden with product for structure and stiffness and blown out into and upward and central direction.
This Mohawk style necessitates a firm hold styling product (such as a wax-based paste or pomade) and liberal application of hairspray can also assist in adding firmness to the hair which will give it added structure.
Note how the sweeping curves of the hair showcase the gradient color effects and imitate the look of flames. And even with all this, the look still doesn't seem punkish.
Here we have a long straight style whose ends - while not precisely layered - are textured to create a softening effect and prevent a hard edged cut line.
The hair is parted ever-so-slightly off-center and smoothed to follow the contour of the head and is gathered into two pigtails at the top of the shoulders on either side of the neck.
The ultra-smooth styling is intended to highlight the special color effect in the hair. The lower portions of the pigtails abruptly shift from deep cherry-wood auburn to a flame orange-red. Note how the severe styling elongates the face.
Here we revisit the woman with the Mohawk style. This is a less dramatic hairstyle, but is equally edgy and suited to a night on the town.
The elongated, contoured shag is plied with styling gel and protective products while damp and blown-out using a large round brush. The hair is directed forward to frame the face and enhance the balance of the features. The round brush gives a large curve to the hair.
The addition of styling pomade to the dried hair allows for the creation of definition and points in the choppy texture of the hair.
Hip Conservative Look
This is a final revision of the Mohawk and the edgy hairstyle. The shag cut is shown here blown-out with emphasis on minimizing volume and enhancing the appearance of the texturing of the hair.
The use of a blow-dryer and round brush with a firm hold styling product such as a wax-based paste will allow the hair to be directed with definition and soft contours.
Short Wavy Hair Style
This short wavy hair style is created on the base of a layered bob cut. The layering is focused primarily around the forward perimeter of the hair framing the face.
The soft bends and S-curves in the hairstyle could easily be created using an old-fashioned technique for styling known as finger-waving.
The damp hair is plied with styling gel and is arranged using a comb and the fingers into a series of curves and ridges. The hair is then dried and the now hardened shapes are loosened and combed or brushed out into a softer styling arrangement.
A dab of pomade on the fingertips will allow you to add definition to the waves and create more controlled ends.
Edgy Short Bob Cut
The short wavy hair style is seen here in a smooth, straight style that showcases both the face-framing layers and the box layering that helps to reduce the bulk in the hairstyle's lower portions.
The hair is plied with a firm-hold (possibly wax-based) product and is blown out smooth using a round brush. The wax-based product will allow the hair to form defined segments enhancing the layering.
Additional smoothing can be achieved using a flat iron to create a soft curve. The finished look is structured and edgy, yet conservative enough for any business setting.
Here we have a shoulder-length bob cut that is deeply textured using a razor tool. The ends of the hair are softened dramatically, creating a light edge in the style.
The hair is styled smooth with a deep side-parting through blow-drying and flat-iron smoothing. The use of a malleable styling product helps to give the hair hold and mobility that can be adjusted and tweaked as desired.
This is a clean, chic look that will make the grade in any professional setting and still be glamorous enough to make the cut on any red carpet.
Here we have a bold and dramatic hairstyle built on a long layered cut. The hair is likely naturally straight, but styled anyway to enhance the straightness and structure of the cut and style.
The blown-out and ironed-smooth locks are enhanced and adorned by and with micro-braid extensions that hang on either side of the face, anchored in the hair to either side of the central parting.
This technique of applying extension hair is a great way to introduce a touch of color and pizzazz into an otherwise hard to color hairstyle. It is certainly a healthy alternative to trying to lighten the naturally black hair to the level of color necessary to achieve the blonde color shown.
The shoulder-length bob may have been the epitome of professional chic, but the base cut lends itself to more than one interpretation for styling.
Shown here, we have a high-volume look created with the use of volumizing products and blow-dry styling for lift.
Add in the generous use of backcombing and ruffing with a brush and you create a fullness that gives an otherwise, simple sleek look an edgy, modern silhouette.
While it may be a bit much for boardrooms and conference tables, it is certainly suited to runways and catwalks.
