Volumelike in the 70s.

You know I love volume and I know you love volume too. So lets go into a little detail on a more retro take on volume.

Volume at the bottom, like in the 70s. Like Farrah. What if we started going less volume at the crown, at the roots, and embraced a more massive balance all throughout? Id say its a good idea. Its a bit more of a flowier fullness and Id even say that perhaps the full teased crown doesnt have a monopoly on hot girl volume.

Make room for even, consistent volume. I suspect were going to see more all over fullness and less rooty fullness in the coming years.

All over fullness is best achieved by making big curls starting halfway down your hairshaft, then shaking out vigorously when necessary. I have formed a beautiful habit of shaking every 30 minutes. Oh, and dont forget the product! Oribe Dry Texture Spray will give you that 70s hair.

Do you plan to go for bottom fullness? Or will you keep with your rooty fullness? I wont judge either waywere talking about hair here.

Ive been feeling a little uninspired lately. Blogginwise. I miss this blog and its always on my mind. I have a million ideas for upcoming projects, some that will even be happening in May! Im really looking forward to showing them to you all.

Ive been working on a million projects around my home these days and its pretty much day and night. On the weekends I find myself checking the free section of craigslist and going to flea markets to bargain as low as I can for little items to spruce up my home. (Not the same as my hair sprucing!) I recently found these girls at the Green Flea and couldnt leave without them. Their hair puts me in a dream.

When you were little and youd watch movies with your friends or family, would you yell out Im her for the prettiest girl in the movie? I hope you did because my friends, cousins and sisters and I did that too. I would watch Princess Bride and Splash and I would refuse to watch the movie if I couldnt be Buttercup or Madison. This applied to all major Disney movies too. Even the Jungle Book. Which only has a girl in it for 15 seconds.

Anyway, in this case, I get to be the pink one. But if one of you called it first, then Ill be the orange girl. Id settle for any of these girls. I love them, and their hair and their cheeks and their flowers. Theyve got my mind spinning with inspiration.

..And also caffeine.

Androgynous Hair trends.

The other day I was consulting a male client who wanted his hair cut like one of the girls I work with. Yes, she has a long pixie, but you still dont see a guy pointing to a girl for hair inspiration every day. Its happened a few different times, with both men and women. Men are wearing more feminine hair cuts and clothes (skinny jeans, etc.) and women are also going more simple with hair and wardrobe (blazers, trousers and oxfords are everywhere!). Ultra layered cuts are definitely making their exit and more natural, flowing styles are what Im doing more every day at the salon. Women are wearing more soft, natural looks..less done altogether.

Whenever I think about how the lines are blurring more and more with men and womens styles, I think about the late 70s and early 80s. Specifically David Bowie. He looked very much like a beautiful woman. (I mean that in the nicest way)


Also, if you take away their beards and sexy hairy chests, the Bee Gees all have lady hair.


Annie Lenox was all about the dude do.


Ok, both Annie Lenox and Jamie Lee Curtis look crazy similar to David Bowie. Also in a good way.


What do you think about the newest androgynous hair trends?

~In case it wasnt obvious, this was one of my all time favorite posts to write and research. Thanks to David and the Bee Gees having such nice, slender legs and chests.~
