BLURRED by Raffel Pages
A collection of hairstyles inspired by the workshop of the artist. That corner and intimate place, poetic, where codes and concepts are fused, where dissonance is welcome and where the true personality flourishes to defend and claim their own style, creativity and originality.
BLURRED is a minimalist collection, with intimate inspiration and very much linked to emotions. With clear English Style inspiration on the one hand and a more muse and romantic inspiration on the other, creating a masculine look to accentuate femininity and the aura of intimacy.
As for color, the hair becomes a canvas where the brush strokes can be fine and imperfect or thick and incomplete, all fused but in harmony. With multi-relief tones and playing with the key color of this season, which is undoubtedly tone peach.
Look with Elements of Masculinity
This look is proof that long hair and elements of masculinity can complement each other perfectly.
The model’s chestnut brown hair has been cut into a very long, connected layers style. The hair around the face is especially layered and feathered by using thinning shears and a stylist’s razor. The feathered look around the face softens the masculinity of this hairstyle considerably.
The weight-line of the cut is very heavy and thick, most probably thanks to hair extensions to make this style look even more impressive. The root to mid lengths are kept straight, while luxurious waves unfurl along the lower mid lengths to tips.
Style for Thick Long Hair
This style is much more relaxed and informal than the previous image, although elements of romantic masculinity and a sense of rogue rebellion still enfold the overall style. The model’s hair is very long and very thick; once again most probably with the help of hair extensions.
Her hair has been back-combed extensively, with the surface of the hair gently combed with a boar-bristle brush to get that super thick, fashionably dishevelled look. The colorist incorporated a light golden brown color around the face to lighten up the heaviness of the look, and to add a sweet touch charm.
Simple Hairstyle with Layers
This pageboy look seems to be all the rage right now. This hairstyle is deceptively simple, yet stunningly aesthetic at the same time.
The model’s naturally medium-thick, wavy hair has been cut into connected layers on the top part of her head, with exaggerated layers at the back. The sides are short and styled to the front of the ears, like one would do with a short style.
Short Cropped Hair
This is an image that immediately makes one think of a fusion between the Military and a Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot. The model’s hair has been cropped very short, especially along the sides and back.
You’ll note a very definitive “step” in length between the length of the top hair and that of the sides and back of the pixie. The hair at the sides is sheared short enough that you can almost see pale skin showing through.
This type of extreme short length makes for a perfectly neat and structured hairstyle that flourishes on precision. The longer, thinned out bangs add a bit of femininity to the mix.
Long Layered Bob with Bangs
This is absolutely stunning!
The model’s hair has been cut into a long layered bob with very thick bangs long enough to completely cover her eyebrows. The tips of the connected layers have been thinned out extensively with both thinning shears and a stylist’s razor in order to create that super shaggy, feathery look.
The base color is a very rich medium copper-red, while the stylist added licks of lighter copper highlights along the tips of the hair especially around the face.
Hairstyle with a Dreamy Frame
This is actually a cut and color that is not utilized nearly enough these days.
The model’s very long hair is kept one-length, although the tips have been thinned out slightly to reduce the weight of the hair. The hair at the sides of her face has also been feathered faintly to create a dreamy frame. Her bangs are thick with a solid weight-line that bends inwards very slightly to follow the form of her forehead.
The medium champagne - ash blonde mix color of this hairstyle is one of the most impressive elements of the look. The color play between the tones showcases the whole style beautifully.
Gradually Increasing Hair Length
This style is a flawless synthesis of English romanticism and androgynous chic.
The model’s hair has been cut into a medium length style where the hair length increases very gradually from an eyebrow level fringe to a shoulder length back. The angle of this gradient is so gentle that the weight line of the style seems like a solid “slide” from short to long.
The stylist used his thinning shears flawlessly along the tips of the hair to increase the movement of light at the tips, without breaking the seemingly solid weight line. The dark ash-champagne blonde mix once again accentuates the elements of this style.
