Hairstyles Spring Summer 08
Infusing modern elements in classic shapes is the season's recipe to fabulous modern hairstyles. Carpy Coiffeur takes basic shapes and lightens them up with new textures, varying lengths and precious colors.
Androgynous is the theme and you'll see many women sporting short haircuts and men with long and soft curls. At the same time the hair fashion playground between those extremes is wide and open. It invites to try out different textures, lengths and to push the color to its lustrous limit.
Bangs from Ear to Ear
The fringe (bangs) of all fringes spans from one ear to the other and barely covers the eyebrows with its straight line. The edge is textured just a minimum to soften the line. Androgynous, modern and ready for the city.
This very short haircut keeps you cool in many aspects and is a masterful example of how beautiful simplicity can be. The hair color of dark espresso enhances the energy.
The neat cutting lines of this short hairstyle and straight styling remind of 1930s boy cuts but have some added features that makes them trendy hits today. The gently graduated neck keeps the hair close to the scalp and sets the theme for the smooth roundness for the silhouette.
Cut-in sideburns use their sharp angle as a stylish contrast and the long fringe dominates the front. Ash blonde comes across as an understatement, however an eccentric one.
Cool, unpredictable and strong yet at the same time playful, expressive and attractive is the language of this winning combination of haircut, styling and hair color. The short ear to ear cutting line of the basic bowl cut is interrupted by textured strands of varying lengths that break up the strictness.
The surface shows strands styled against the grain that bring in modern movement and reflect the light in iridescent rays of style.
Bad Boy Appeal
With varying lengths the fringe and the sides give this hairstyle a rugged and modern edge. With the smooth styling and the overall rounded silhouette the handsome hairstyle keeps a groomed appearance suitable for all occasions and surroundings.
Of course it also comes with innumerable styling options and the dark color gives the man's look an extra dose of the bad boy appeal that we all love.
