Page Boy with Texture
The classic page boy turns exciting with new texture all around its edges. The asymmetrical bangs and a grandiose party of light and dark hair colors are completed with sharp points that can be styled into the face or used for special effects when the hair is spiked up.
The neck is graduated and the main body of hair is finely layered to achieve the gorgeous round shape. In its styling options this cut spans the spectrum from smooth and classy to punky. You can pick your flavor of the day and use simple tricks and products to transform yourself in minutes.
Short Hair Spiked Up
Get on the wild side with a spiked up page boy. It is the very same cut as before, but now it has a new trendy punk vibe. The hair is lifted up to sharp spikes on the crown, the sides and back are textured with modeling paste and styled wild but down with some curved volume.
Two long accent strands follow the line of her jaw for another surprising special effect. Caramel highlights are layered into the brown base color making this scenario especially exciting.
Short and Classy
Long top hair is layered thoroughly for volume and a dynamic fall. The cutting edge feathery texture was created with the sharp blade of a razor, which keeps it soft. An asymmetrical fringe ends in a long point alongside her cheek and gives her a very elegant flair while the ruffled structure and messy volume keeps things on the casual and sassy side.
Colors come in blonde tones with darker brown on the roots and a golden brown hue in between. These contrast have a lively effect on the hair.
Being a little backwards can be this stylish! The feathery short cut in the previous image is now styled in the opposite direction and falls to the back in a stylish wave. This generates great volume and a spirited dynamic.
Sides and neck are simple and narrow, leaving the focus on the top hair, which is also enhanced by the highlights. The darker roots make the light effects stand out and together the hair colors underline the movement and deep dimension of the cut.
A beautiful styling with effortless and casual elegance that is perfect for professional women who need an easy to style look, which is beautiful in the office and gives them a fashion icon status at happy hour as well.
This sophisticated bob plays in soft curves around the base of her neck and accentuates her face with an oval frame. The collar bone length is very flattering and also allows her to experiment with many styling ideas. The hair is long enough for ponytails and upstyles.
This beautiful design displays elegant simplicity with smooth styling and gentle movement. Layers are cut in the interior with a razor to add shape and movement. Her hair color looks very natural with the darker roots that are blended into the gold, medium beige blonde lengths.
Could you guess that this is the same haircut that you just saw in its sophisticated, smooth form? It is even the same model! Now with a natural styling the hairstyle turns her from ladylike to sensual with a hint of rock and roll. With the side part a pretty asymmetry emerges and the disheveled waves speak for themselves.
The hair barely touches her shoulders, a perfect length to keep the hair manageable while enjoying the luxury of longer hair.
With this hairstyle you can just imagine her floating across a flower filled meadow or down the hallway of a grand mansion. A bit of Gone With The Wind and Jane Austen is infused into the beautiful curls, which emerge from a sleeker top in the lower half.
So vintage and so beautiful. Unpretentious but utterly captivating. The formerly open curly style is now rolled up, tugged and pinned to a gorgeous creation that is fit for the big ballroom. Her hair is parted in the center and smoothed back, without strictness but instead with a soft curve on the sides.
The lengths are rolled to small barrels and fastened invisibly with hairpins that should be in a similar brown color as the hair. Understated make-up in natural colors is ideal with this hairstyle.
Remember Archie? Exaggerated looks in a strong color are often the trademark of some of our favorite drawn characters. ZV makes it easy now for fashion minded men to show their expressive side with shaved sides that transition into a section of clipped short hair that runs around the back of the head.
The top shows a strong contrast in length. Here the bangs are lifted in a happy and feisty curve. His hair color is a dark copper red, perfect with his freckles and light skin tone.
A-student with a twist. Nerdy looks are among the most coveted today and what is not to love about a well groomed gent with some humor and a great style. The striped bow tie is the ideal accessory for his clean short cut with the molded styling.
Anti frizz and modeling products keep the surface smooth and make the handsome wave in his combed back bangs happen.
Contrasts create fashionable tension. In this style it is the mix of the ruffled and strongly textured back against the sleek bangs, which were styled straight up. A small shaved stripe just above his ears makes for an extravagant touch. This undercut is less than an inch wide, but has a huge impact.
The front is more than twice as long as the rest of the hair which is about the same all around. The rough part can be styled with the fingers, but you'll need a fine toothed comb for the refined smoothness of the lifted up fringe.
There is a method and a strong design to his wild look. An undercut defines the sides, a short clipped perimeter keeps things in a more traditional realm and the longer hair on his crown is cut in a triangular shape with the longest part in front. This is where all convention ends and the fun starts.
His styling emphasizes shape, but also bets on heavy texture. A good styling cream textures the hair and keeps the long strands falling over his forehead in a true Hollywood style. Forever the rebel, he does not give up on refined style.
His dashing look is the result of amazing perfection in a cut that uses a calculated and consequent point-cut technique. The hair just flows without any harsh lines or great contrasts. Smooth and seductive with extreme simplicity.
The hair gradually increases in length from the short neck and back. The distinct shape will be more visible in the alternative styling of the next image, but here he uses the smooth combed back version in combination with a short stubble beard to turn knees into jelly.
Wavy Fringe with Glasses
Clark Kent showed us what lives beneath a geeky exterior and made strong rimmed glasses a symbol for male mystery. His cut has a gradual increase in length from a very short back to the fringe and the design is all about flow and smooth transitions.
His distinct side part plays into the retro theme which is completed by the dapper wave that floats along the side of his forehead. Well groomed stubbles in his face make it all even more attractive.
