Using two of the most characteristic eras when it comes to hairstyles, the baroque period and the roaring twenties for inspiration, the Contra Collection came to life. Using these two eras, the collection transforms the hairstyles of the time period into stunning modern-day masterpieces. The collection has created two new trends, Newstalgia and Rockmantic.
Newstalgia (photos 1 - 6) - These hairstyles feature contrasting light and dark hair color schemes merging the romantic times of the baroque period with a new edge rock and roll style. The hair colors that are used are rich purples, violets, and silver blondes and various shades of gray. The colors give a truly romantic glow with a combination of the rocker's world edge.
Two Haircuts as One
Champagne tones of blonde are presented throughout the brown panels in the short clipped bob that skims over to the one side and covering part of the eye. Just underneath the bob brings the surprise of long brown hair that dips below the model's shoulders. Two haircuts as one.
Blonde Tones over Brown
Racy blonde tones over brown become a cornerstone in waves set close to the head and styled away from the face with an array of curls around the shoulders. The use of a curling iron will help with the coils.
The effect of blonde, gold and light brown hair slices are blended throughout short layers constructed into borderline waves presenting a glimpse of yesteryear, while the rest of the hair flips out over the ears and around the nape accenting the shag. The kiss of former times.
Middle of the Ears Hairstyle
Clippy textured layers become a work of art when there are multiple multihued blondes, browns and caramels displayed in the short hairstyle. Exaggerated heavy bangs hide one eye, exposing the expertise of the clip.
The sides cover the middle of the ears and are combed toward the face. The back is edged up around the nape to flow with the rest of the hairstyle.
Bob with a Close Nape
The extravagance of sizzling reds is portrayed with line upon layer of hair, in the large wide hoop of a band that is designed over the model's forehead. The cut is a type of textured bob, close in at the nape with more length on the sides.
Better than bronze, a gust of fiery reds become most apparent in the long bangs on the model that are wind blown over to the side with a few streaks flittering about in the air. The rest of the hair is combed smoothly around the head, completing the picture of a bob. Totally breathtaking.
Brow Cuffing Bangs
Poised for excellence! Embrace the colors of a rich rose violet, strawberry beige and dark brown that are most appreciated by artists who like to saturate themselves in color. However, not just dream about it, but create a life of blazing rainbows. Thick, long layers are tweaked throughout the hair with brow cuffing bangs.
Long Hair with Crimping
Once again the debut of fantasy reds becomes irresistible. The awareness of the layers becomes a bit more apparent with the crimping and the shorter sections that pouf out from the head. The two strawberry beige strips on both sides, capture the final touch of artistry.
Informal Male Hairstyle
The many shadows of brown are linked to blonde slices throughout this rebel rouser's hair. Choppy clips about the head gather the huge bulk that covers the one eye; while the other side is combed close to the face. Bits of hair are spiked outward from the head to assure an informal hairstyle.
Styled to One Side
Pensively our model becomes deep in thought. His hair is brought over to the one side in one massive bulk exposing the multiple lines of colors. A few rebellious strands announce their unwillingness to join the rest of the hair. Gel and spray will create this hairstyle.
Short Hair with Streaks
Blacker than black hair is integrated with glacier white platinum slices and with this photo we can notice each streak that was especially selected to be placed into perfection, while the bob is edged and clipped around the back into a smooth design. An excellent example of where a bold contrast meets harmony.
Black Hair with Silver Linings
Lofty good looks begin with platinum silver linings against a background of raven black hair. The back is clipped up fairly close. The sides move toward the face in slight tweaks of layers.
The top is combed over into a heavy bulk blanketing one eye and revealing the choppy smooth effects of the creative colors and hairstyle.
