Crown­ing glory

> Big hair is back for women, so are bobs, but out go men's full beards

The Sun (Malaysia) - - BEAUTY -

BIG hair and a move away from com­pletely un­nat­u­ral dyes are big trends dom­i­nat­ing hair styling for women right now, par­tic­u­larly in Ger­many, hair­dressers opined at a re­cent in­dus­try meet.

Long locks with lots of vol­ume, as well as lighter tips, are two of the trends that cus­tomers are de­mand­ing in big num­bers to look "in".

Curly hair has also be­come fash­ion­able again, for both women and men.

Ac­cord­ing to hair­dresser Di­eter Schoell­horn, the un­der­ly­ing trend driv­ing all of this is nat­u­ral­ness, even for dyed hair. "High­lights in a shade that matches your hair colour al­ways look good," Schoell­horn said. He and oth­ers say it's not yet time to count out short hair­cuts, such the bob and the bowl cut, which flat­ter many women, but they should not be shaped too thin. "Vol­ume is also im­por­tant here," he said. For men, Schoell­horn mostly snips the clas­si­cal short hair­cut th­ese days as well as wilder hair­styles. It's also im­por­tant to cus­tomers that the cuts are flex­i­ble for both women and men.

"Nowa­days a hair­cut has to be suit­able for many dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions."

At the re­cent Ger­man Hair­dress­ing Championships, Schoell­horn re­vealed what had fallen out of fash­ion: un­kempt hair and gar­ish colours.

"You can see im­me­di­ately that some­thing is not right. The dye should be as close to a nat­u­ral hue as pos­si­ble."

Full beards, which have been a hip­ster fix­ture around the globe for a cou­ple of sea­sons, are also slowly fall­ing out of fash­ion again.

"Younger cus­tomers are ask­ing for more un­con­ven­tional op­tions, such as mous­taches," ex­plains bar­ber Flo­rian Auzinger. – dpa

This model shows off some of the more re­strained dyes now used in hair, re­plac­ing the even more wildly im­prob­a­ble colours that reigned re­cently.
