Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide had the pleasure of attending George The Salon’s grand opening celebration last week. Owner George Gonzalez recently changed addresses, moving to swanky new digs in Chicago’s Gold Coast. The new salon space is gorgeous, with beautiful fixtures and wood and cement accents. A beautiful space to get beautiful!

Texture Trends #HotHairstyles!

Wella Professionals Global Creative Director Eugene Souleiman designed a wildly powerful tress silhouette with abundant texture for a recent runway show for desinger Esteban Cortazar. “Last season for this same show we braided the hair and when we took the braids out after the show, we liked the texture it created and wanted to bring that back this season,” shares Souleiman. “The soft organic textures and shapes were finished with a wet fringe; it’s as if the girl has just emerged from the humidity of the Amazon jungle and this contrast between wet and dry brings drama and modernity to the look.”texture trends 2

Get The Look:

1. Section the hair into three equal portions, ensuring that the hair is evenly distributed around the head.

2. Create three braids of equal thickness and weight and saturate with EIMI Dynamic Fix hairspray.

3. To quickly set the texture and create a defined shape to the curl, squash the braids between a flat iron.

4. texture trends 3Once dry and cooled, undo the braids and brush through with a bristle brush to create abundant volume. Spray with EIMI Dry Me to emphasize the texture.

5. Apply EIMI Shape Control mousse over the crown and work into hair so it looks “humid.” Rub the palm of your hand upwards against the grain of the hair to create a soft, broken texture.

6. To finish, create a unique shape to the front of each girl’s hair, using hair pins to secure areas and break up the fullness.

Help train those bangs by blow-drying with a round brush, moving them in the direction you want to go, and apply a touch of styling serum to keep them smooth.

DRAMATIC UNDERCUT #HAIRSTYLE


dramatic undercut hairstyle

Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, Tilda Swinton, Jada Pinkett Smith, Kelly Osbourne and Pink are some of the fierce women who have worn a shaved undercut with confidence, and attracted mainstream appeal.  Geneva Cowen, Artistic Director for Sam Villa, says. “In the past, feminine shapes have typically been rounder and men’s shapes leaner, but today we are applying both options to each gender. Shapes that can be styled ultra feminine or masculine, depending on mood.” So whatever cut look you desire, it’s about you!
