Whip your hair back and forth!

Get to touch, feel and experience the hairdos, which were exhibited at the ramps of Milan, Paris, London and New York, right here in Chennai.

Bewitching. The display of magnetic hairdos at Schwarzkopf essential looks’ 13 , has the audience stuck to their seats like iron chips. With each new look displayed at the launch of its new colour range – Igora Royal, there is an arousal of consciousness among women as they tousle and stroke their locks, only to feel the lack of something – the colours.

Crisp reds, stunning chocolates and vivid blonds give that elvish touch to the hair that falls obediently, forming a neat curtain before the eyes. You are almost tempted to part it along the radiant highlights, but restrain yourself in the fear of destroying that beautiful symmetry that could give an inferiority complex to geometry in itself.

“Monomodes!” – the first hair design in the Colour buzz collection is on display at the Leela Palace. The crowd isn’t prepared for this. Their seats rattle and soon they are teleported into the sixties, shaking hands with the groundbreaking designers such as Pierre Cardin and Marrie Quaint.  The clean cuts, the smooth tranistion of colours and the neat tapering at the back is almost like an ode to the 60s vibe. The copper pastel colours alternating with shades of brown and bronze make one’s hair a perpetual ‘crowning glory’, as top model, Lisa Hayden, present among the crowd, puts it.

A silent mutiny to the symmetry of monomodes, is the next – White angles. Like the pleats in a Kimono and the precision folds done in Origami, the cuts look sculptured – straight and neat. A triangular A shaped pattern at the back, red longer locks in the front, violet shorter locks in the right – disorientated yet organised, it seems like a puzzle yet to be fixed.

Forget the 60’s, forget the Japanese. Let’s talk about the modern luxe. Glam chic lets you loose your eccentricity, lets you blend in and still stand out. The strong red highlights are hidden and the urban with an interplay of urban and beige colours that darkens at the top and lightens a bit to form the curls at the end, like the winding threads of a gold yarn.

‘If my mama likes the look, it’s not the look I want’ – this defines electric youth. Disheveled and rebellious, the cuts are tailored by chaotic chopping, with no rules what-so-ever. Not glamorous or shiny, the pastel colours on bold fringes and randomly taken sections is a conscious effort in creating a devil maker look. Well, a hair cut is not like a helmet, anyways.

The four new trends have their own set of crowds. If you had your hair-fetish voice within you raising to get one on yourself, let it dominate your heart voice for once.
