Intercoiffure Austria 08

Bold hairstyles
 
If I chose one word to describe this collection of styles from Intercoiffure Austria that word would be BOLD. The styles are bold in all elements: bold cuts, bold color, bold styling, and each of the styles create a different look and feel for the model.
 
Some looks are the type you might see on an everyday woman while others you aren't likely to see outside of a catwalk. However, they are all BOLD and beautiful.
 

Framing the Eyes and Cheekbones

Short haircut with a blocked off nape
 
Pixie with hair framing the eyes and cheekbones
 
It shimmers and shines with warmth and spice glowing like burnished copper. This super short contour haircut features a blocked off nape with an angle to a point at the center back. The front features a fringe and a smooth curving line that frames the eyes and cheekbones. The whole is textured with a razor tool to soften and shape the ends.
 
The hair is styled for smoothness with a gentle blow-dry technique using a flat brush and the added application of a flat iron for sleekness and glassy finish. The cut and styling are perfect for those with fine hair types.
 

Bob with Bed-Head Styling

Short bob with choppy texture
 
Soft like a downy feather comforter with a silk cover. This pale blonde look is a box-layered bob with a choppy texture and bed-head styling. The layers are textured with a razor tool to create the choppy, roughed-up look.
 
The finished cut is blow-dried with a texturing product like wax-based mousse and the fingers to generate the shaken look. A dab of pomade on the fingers is used to add some definition. It's a great style for a woman with medium texture hair for an easy, breezy style.
 

Choppy Pixie Hairstyle

Purple hair coloring
 
This choppy, chunky, pixie-style cut is made all the more dramatic with a bold blast of plum purple. The base color of the hair was obviously lifted to a pale level before the color was applied, creating the brighter contrasting chips of fuchsia amid the plum tones.
 
The cut is created using a razor tool for an airy, edgy look. Blow-dry styling and a stiff-hold styling product is the key to making this style really POP. It's a look best-suited to medium-textured straight hair types.
 

Smooth Curves

Bob with accent hair colors
 
Smooth, silky curves are the hallmarks of this modified bob cut. The cut features a long fringe section and the ends are razor cut for smoothness and to create wispy layers to frame the face. Visual interest is added by the interspersed highlighting and accent colors you see: pale beige blonde streaks with a handful of coppery accents.
 
The hair is styled with blow-drying with a round brush and light-hold styling product. It is parted on the side with a slightly angled part and directed to create gentle curves to caress the face and offset the angles and sharp features of the model's face.
 

Sun-Bleached Blonde Hair

Hair cut with a razor tool
 
With sun-bleached blonde coloring (indicated by the darker new-growth area) and a swing cut this look is bold and playful. The hair is cut with an angled line toward the front using a razor-tool for texturing and is styled for smoothness and freedom of movement.
 
The look is likely achieved through the use of a blow-dryer and flat paddle brush with a light styling product and smoothing serum. An additional pass with a flat iron will give a glossy finish. This is a great look for a woman with medium or fine textured straight hair.
 

Choppy Hair in the Crown

Careless hairstyle with an orange hair color
 
Here we see a pixie-cut in a flaming orange blaze of color. The cut is executed with steep layering and creates elongated lines in the style. The layers are textured with a razor tool, creating longer choppy locks in the crown and top sections.
 
The styling is a carefully-cultivated blend of the bed-head look and wind-blown carelessness. The forward-directed locks give weight to the fringe area and focus attention to the face. Get this look by using a firm styling product and a blow-dryer with a flat brush. A dab of pomade will help to smooth sections and give definition to the ends of the hair.
 

Partial Up-Style

Updo with sausage curls
 
This partial up-style is executed in beautiful sable strands. The top, sides and crown sections are carefully woven into a cap of silken stands. The remaining lengths of hair are allowed to fall along the nape of the neck in thick, ropey sausage curls.
 
The look is evocative of the Renaissance when ladies wore close-fitting caps and gathered their hair into nets. This style gives you all of the romance and elegance of that look using only your own hair.
 

Full-Volume Up-Style

Full-volume up-style with a sleek bouffant egg shape
 
Sleek bouffant updo
 
This full-volume up-style is deceptively simple-looking and builds on a multi-layered French twist to create a bold, charming look. The hair is carefully smoothed and directed to the crown of the head to create a sleek bouffant egg. The top section of the hair is curled and backcombed to give maximum lift and fullness in the stop portion of the style.
 
The smooth, ovoid shape of the up-style is accentuated by the nearly-hidden under-curl at the crown and the artfully crafted chain of hair along the left side of the style. This is a lovely style and would be ideal for a fancy-dress gala or perhaps a baroque-style wedding.
