"Milano Style Line" by Itely Hairfashion
Bold and brave is the theme for the Milano Style Line. There are some subtle looks, styles, and cuts in the mix but the real emphasis is on being daring and bold; taking a risk and never looking back.
What has been created is hair art. Styled one way, you can be all business and ready for the office. Styled another way, you are ready for a night out on the town. Versatility, flexibility, fun, and exciting; that is what this hairstyles collection shoots for and they definitely more than score as you will surely see.
With extreme length on one side (a half bob, if you will), dramatic part, and extreme chopping all around the other side to the back, this short hairstyle is stunning and sophisticated all at the same time. Pomade or gel can help with the shorter pieces while a flat iron will help to keep the longer part super sleek.
Though the main color is a honey blonde, “satin shading” is what makes the hue pop as different colors have been applied on the individual sections (light golden and bronze). The mix of shades helps to balance out the cut and to keep it funky yet sophisticated.
This men’s cut has lighter shades carefully placed throughout the top. The top hair remains longer while the sides and back are short but not too tapered as to blend with the rest of the hair. The top has been left longer to allow it to be styled back, not too severely though.
It is a professional look that exudes style. Pomade or styling gel was used to achieve the “wet look”. Leaving the face free, nothing is left to the imagination, and it makes you look like a confident man inside and out.
Men’s hairstyle with a long taper down the back while messily spiked up through the very long front. Slightly parted to one side but still mussed up. Other longer pieces around the crown are also spiked up, using your fingers as your main tool along with hairspray or wax/pomade.
This will ensure that your gutsy and untamed look with stay intact throughout all of you adventures or at least give you an adventurous spirit. It is a fun way to make growing out hair appear stylish and funky as well as extremely daring.
Yes, I Dare
Daring ladies, you have met your match with this pitch black short and layered shag inspired hairstyle with thick side swept bangs.
A mix of gray bits (chrome, steel, and/or silver) along with air force blue helps to add even more depth to the cut and color while the addition of red on the longer sides (sideburn area) completes the contrast.
Joy of Living
Long taper in the back that is gradually layered up to mix with the thick top and bangs, along with long side pieces. Perfect for anyone with thick hair who is looking for a nice, bold chop that can be styled by using a dryer and a flat brush to keep volume at bay.
If you have thinner hair and desire more volume, a round brush is fine followed by a flat iron to make the “Joy of Living” style even sleeker and more sophisticated. Brush most of the hair to one side and finish with pomade/wax to ensure that your style stays in place. All of this will just enhance the shine and brilliance and who does not want that?
With one side and the back super short and choppy, a lot of length is left on the top, so there is so much that can be done. Curls are bold, fun, and work extremely well with the bold blonde hair color infused with darker shades, more prominent in certain sections.
Brush all the long hair forward and curl the very top with a curling iron to create dramatic spirals then sweep the bang area over to one side and lightly curl it with a flat iron. Scrunch the hair and curls with your fingers and hairspray to make it look even wilder. The sides can be tamed with gel or pomade or funked out with the same products. The top curls give central volume while the light front makes the style more delicate and free.
An extreme side part, defined layers, and perfectly placed caramel/honey highlights compliment this long, chestnut style that adds an element of mystery as one eye is somewhat covered. Hair is pulled to one side with the layers and angles lightly curled with a flat iron and secured with anti-frizz serum, creating the ultimate in sleek shine.
The hair color is done with various shades of Colorly 2020 and is extremely sophisticated but still bold without going too crazy or feeling too much unlike yourself.
The hair is completely blown out and styled to one side. The side with less hair is slightly twisted and clipped to the back while the other side has been gathered and loosely rolled under, clipped with a bobby pin under the ear. The rest of the loose pieces are clipped all around. The alternation of light and dark colors brings volume to the style, like a 3D effect.
This is a fun way to wear your hair up. It looks seemingly effortless and slightly undone. It is a very relaxed style with a nice touch of sophistication and perfect for anyone wanting to step out of the typical bun box.
Rays of Light
Deep angles and layers accentuate the face in a super positive way and a long forelock covers one eye, adding to the allure of the dynamic hairstyle. Lighter highlights have been placed all over to create depth and contrast, as if the sun did all of the work.
If you want to play with extreme hair color, in the funky sense, while still maintaining a somewhat sophisticated style, this is the best way to do it. The base is a darker brown and the hair is parted dramatically to one side. Up until the top layer, the color stays rich in its chestnut feel and then deep layers have perfectly placed marsala, pale pink, fuchsia, and burgundy highlights, with loose curls only accentuating the bright colors.
A stylist will bring your hair to one side for perfect color placement as well as angle/layer sculpting, depending on how your hair is to begin with. The hair will be dried with a round brush for root volume and perfect flipping while a curling or flat iron will be used to achieve the waves, finished with hairspray. This is, for sure, a color win.
To achieve this skyscraper of an updo, leave a small segment of the front loose while you pull the rest into a high ponytail. Proceed to curl the hair that is swept up and secure with bobby pins, layering the curls on top of each other.
Then take the front pieces and divide them into two segments. Go on and braid or twist them and secure them around the ponytail with another pin. Finish off with hairspray to keep the look tight for as long as you choose to wear it.
This long hairstyle is not your typical platinum blonde look as it has so many fun additions to it. A look with unexpected color accents, unusual and intense. It is earthily funky, if you will.
Start with a platinum blonde base, a deep middle part and then add shades like apricot, rose, bronze, gold, and/or peach to the underneath of one side while choosing just one color for a few peek-a-boo strands on the other.
Loose waves can be achieved by either using a thick flat iron or braiding the hair overnight and letting it air dry. Tame with hairspray or anti-frizz serum.
A platinum blonde base with peek-a-boo apricot, rose, gold, and bronze streaks helps to start this super fun take on the disco era.
Make several tight braids all around the hair, using a touch of hairspray for hold and then let it air dry, preferably overnight. After the hair is dry, take the braids out and then brush out the natural crimps that the braids have helped to create. Use a big wooden brush to increase the chance of volume and continue to add hairspray so that you achieve that maximum in hold and fullness.
If you can find a crimper at a beauty supply store or the salon, that will work wonders but you must tease and/or brush the crimps and waves out for fullness and fun. The mixed in hair colors help add to the look by giving it some colorful charm.
Wisteria and apricot tones blend amazingly well with an icy platinum base that has been gathered to one side.
An unkempt knot is created via bobby pins keeping it very loose yet still secure enough for movement. One side is slightly covering an eye to add to the mystery while the whole look is finished off with hairspray. It is extremely Bohemian chic while staying trendy and casual but simply elegant.
