Bright autumn days shone for members of the hair and beauty industries: The HAARE 2008 enthused participants, visitors and companies alike at the booths of this trade show.
The proof is in the numbers. More than 18,000 visitors attended the NürnbergMesse from October 19th to the 21st. An increase of more than 20 percent compared to the 2004 show. A highlight of the show was the combination of the German and Bavarian Hair Championship.
The HAARE 2008 offered an outstanding mix of shows, competitions, workshops, and information. "The perfect basis for the success of it", says Andreas Popp, President of the German Association of Hairdressers, ZV.
Bouncy curls in combination with long, free spirited tendrils are converted into a head turning updo. Long hair was curled and then pinned on top of the head in a deliberate messy and random fashion.
Long tendrils are pulled out in front to add even more movement. The sides are soft and straight. Mousse and hairspray are essential. A great look for that special night out, for events and celebrations.
Like fire and ice. A clever combination of colors in hair and make-up create a balanced, modern, sophisticated and youthful style. This bob cut at chin length received special treatment with a longer, fringy nape.
The low side partition enhances the flow of red color over the head and on the sides. The silhouette is almost perfectly round and smooth with short, sassy bangs as a delightful contrast.
Updo with Loosely Piled Hair
This princess is not lost and will not be forgotten. A delightful mass of dark hair is loosely piled on top of the head and pinned down in large waves and irregular curls. The very sleek bangs offer a fine contrast to the willfully disarranged top.
Some thinner and more robust tendrils adorn the sides and the back, bringing more interest and movement to this urban fairy-tale updo.
Seduce with flowing curls! A sassy updo with an opulent mass of curls cascading down on one side. The hair is gathered together and loosely pinned on top of the head. Arranged in asymmetrical manner to allow a full flow to one side.
A couple of open tendrils keep the balance on the opposite side. The long bangs are meshed with the rest of the hair that frames the face with much finesse. Apply spray and arrange the locks with your fingers.
Short Bangs for Men
A great look from the office to the party or the game. A classic short men's cut was updated with a lightly longer nape, narrow and short sideburns, short bangs and lots of texture. The hair was layered with longer lengths on the crown and in the neck.
Very Light Blonde Hair
Bangs like fragile icicles form a thin veil that covers the eyes and makes this snow princess irresistible and mysterious. A short layered haircut in a very light blonde was combed towards the face in a criss-crossed fashion where the extra long bangs shroud the look of this not so icy blonde. The cut is versatile and can be worn with many different stylings.
A familiar and timeless look that fits every occasion and environment. However, this blunt bob comes with new and fashionable details like the high side part and tapered sidelines. The spice of this style lies in the coloring. Golden blonde and light blonde highlights are skillfully applied to a dark blonde background.
Sleek Bangs and Curls
Delightful curls and full bangs are the key elements to this, sexy and fun style for long hair. In contrast to the straight and sleek fringe area and tapered, face framing sides, this hairstyle shows tons of large, frolicking curls with the utmost in shine and movement.
The hair on the sides and back is left slightly unkempt for a more casual look.
Small and Large Curls
Happy and elegant with a head full of curls. A bundle of small curled long hair is pinned up from one side and the back to create a partial up-style with an asymmetrical, almost triangular shape.
A narrow front portion including the fringe is generously waved and has some large curls towards the ends. Long layers enhance the bounce and volume of this style.
Extravagant Short Cut
A nod to space age and sci-fi. An extravagant haircut with mixed textures shows one of the most interesting silhouettes of the season. The hair was cut in a round line across the forehead, leaving extra short bangs and very pointed sideburns.
Versatile Short Haircut
Alluring, practical and so very unique. A versatile cut that flatters all women who decide to go short. It has all the fashion elements of this season. Textured asymmetrical lines, a high partition, volume above the ears, small sideburns, lots of shine and an intense hair color. The deep berry tone gets a little surprising lift with a splash of copper in front.
Tomboy meets Diva. This flattering short hairstyle catches you at the first and even more at the second look. The shortest hairs are on the neck and form a nice round silhouette.
On top the longer strands appear to be anchored on the crown and from there they are styled diagonally across the head, flowing down the sides and into the face in fine fringes.
Young sophistication with a modified bob. The classic line with a 60s inspired long and full fringe gets a youthful makeover with the textured cutting lines at the bottom. The cool blonde reminds of a late summer day with its soft shine and the wheat colored strands and platinum highlights. The hair is styled with a flat iron, and the ends are lightly turned outward.
Very Short Haircut
Touchable eye catcher with finesse and versatility. Very short hair on the crown makes room for longer strands with highly textured ends. The bangs are full and just touch the eyebrows with their textured tips.
The real surprise, however, is the color. Underneath the vanilla blonde we get glimpses of a luscious raspberry, peeking through in the bangs and on the sides.
Fashion Bob Hairstyle
Victoria Beckham brought the bob back into fashion focus. Skilled stylists now take it to another level and incorporate new and surprising elements. Here we see the classic contour, smoothly layered in the lower quarter and lengthening abruptly towards the front. The front strands are of equal length and are accentuated with splashes of color.
Two in One Hairstyle
A mix of elements brought to the max. Daring fashionistas combine long and short in the most consequent style. A true and full bob in warm browns with blonde highlights is styled to a wonderful rounded shape. It crowns a fan of straight cut over-shoulder length, super sleek hair in shiny ebony.
