Unkempt hair is the new chic

The Sun (Malaysia) - - BEAUTY -

THE punk trend is back, and this time it's in­flu­enc­ing hair­styles. You can go for a messy look, or a smooth, straight fringe as part of an oth­er­wise wild hair­style.

Roberto Laraia, an art di­rec­tor for hair, ex­plains how stylists are pick­ing up punk de­tails, rather than the com­plete punk look, for a tamer ver­sion that is be­ing dubbed "punk chic".

The in­spi­ra­tion is of course the punk wave of the 1970s and 80s, as well as the pre­ced­ing mod fash­ion of 1960s Eng­land. The hair­cuts range from ca­sual to more wild.

For men, the hair is styled in a stud­iedly unkempt way. Women's hair­styles in­clude long side par­ti­tions and vo­lu­mi­nous front fringes that are styled up­wards.

When it comes to the colour, Laraia says nat­u­ral tones are dead cen­tre of hair fash­ion right now. "Gen­er­ally speak­ing, the colour of the hair should fit and adapt to the per­son's skin type and the colour of their eyes."

For more ma­ture men, there's a sil­ver lin­ing in this new colour aes­thetic, says Laraia. Grey is what matches their skin best, and they should at all costs avoid dy­ing their hair."A lot of the time, grey hair looks just great on a man." – dpa

Mod­els in Er­furt, Ger­many demon­strate punk chic with the unkempt look and more nat­u­ral colours than in the re­cent past. Fringes, as with the man at left, are also the shape of things to come.
