It is quite rare for me to do a season trend look, what more a hair trend. Not that I don’t want to do but I didn’t have any information on hand nor am I the expert. Just last week I was at the launch of Shiseido Professional Stage Works Spiky Booster and I was handed the 2014 Spring/Summer hair trends book, which Shiseido Professional named as COLOR ME KNOT. I was so interested with the content and I thought why not share it with you girls too 😀
Just to recap what I said earlier in Shiseido Professional Stage Works Spiky Booster launch post. Mr. Yoshiyuki Takahashi shared the latest trend in Japan. He said that most magazine in Japan now features lots of white-based color coordination. So Shiseido Professional creative team back at Tokyo Japan studied the trend and came up with COLOR ME KNOT. It is a nuance of accentuating the colors of hair and fashion styles in contrast with blank canvas of white. But this White in 2014 Spring/Summer will be powerful, futuristic, sharp, mysterious and goes well with everything. However it will not be completely full white. So for this season, Shiseido Professional had came up with Wet & Dry, Natural & Strong and Tight & Flared hair styles that will complement the white well.
Spring/Summer 2014 Season Trends Main Style
Men’s Style: Deep Side Parts and Wet-Look To Express Male Sensuality
Men’s fashion will have a bold presence for this Spring/Summer 2014 but with a tinge of playfulness and relaxation.
As you can see, the hairstyles will be square and off-the face type, combined with deep side-parts that will emphasizes on masculinity, combined with rough, unruly sense of movement and a wet feel just like freshly towel-dried hair.
This slightly laid back hairstyles on male sensuality will goes well with the fashion trend of formal wear that is worn slightly dishevelled for a pop-like sensation.
Ladies’ Style: Nuanced Styling That Plays With Texture and Shape
The focus for the ladies on the other hand will be on “bold” white, together with powerful fashion styles while highlighting the contrast between light material textures and voluminous silhouettes. Just like the men’s style, this hair trend is also squarish.
This hairstyle add playfulness to the texture and shape, giving it a natural styling finish. While it may seems unworkable or natural, the most important key point is the clean appearance.
As for the makeup, the main trend is natural-looking makeup, focusing on the skin and add a bit of color accents around the eyes.
