SPANISH HAIRDRESSER OF THE YEAR
Illumination stands for beauty, glamour, pleasure and sexyness. All the things a modern woman exudes today. It has something sensual and intense – a strong luminosity. The results from pure femininity and individuality. And thus some will be like struck by lightning at the sight and fashion-appeal of the “Illumination” woman. This is exactly the effect created by the Intercoiffure Mondial Artistic Team with its latest trend collection “Illumination 2014″.Four extraordinary hair fashion looks with customized cut and colour ideas: Tungsten styles with eccentric bobs, Poetic Halo looks as nostalgic glamour curls, Solar Eclipse with graphic cuts and Lustrous Romance with elegant waves for avant-garde divas. “Illumination” takes you to a lifestyle universe that demonstrates innovative techniques but at the same time also allows a poetic, emotional interpretation of a theme. “Illumination” electrifies illuminates or flashes – Vision of the Elite.
Loud, electrifying and with audacious glamour: “Tungsten” styles want maximum attention for a feminine punk appeal. Young fashion power in vinyl, leather and fur. The cuts are edgy with hard contours: short bobs with voluminous texture and graphical short cuts with eccentric details. The futuristic looks are endowed with neon-purple streaks and colour effects in dip-dye technique. “Tungsten” lifestyle: “What we wade into, we will carry off!”
High fashion in black and white: “Solar Eclipse” beams the sixties to the future and appears heavenly purist. An abstract shape pattern in artful Op-Art is reinvented: graphical cuts and monochrome hair colour underline the strict texture. The perfect up-do style with its sharp contour has the makings of a sculpture. “Solar Eclipse” appears futuristic, bright and daring – looks so exciting and spectacular as the sky phenomenon.
Dramatically romantic as in a daydream:the lifestyle universe of “Poetic Halo” is nostalgic and feminine in a hyper modern way. Undone up-dos with braided hair bands in pastel tones and soft curls in elaborate complexity are the styles of cool princesses who love to stand in the light. With it, light outfits of feathers and multi necklaces. Poetical looks – fabulous, mysterious and sometimes magical in delicate mint sorbet.
Extra extravagant! “Lustrous Romance” styles have a glowing trend effect. A tribute to Dior’s “New Look”: shiny big hair creations, XL chignons with rhinestone jewelry and opulent waves. Copper à la Rita Hayworth or glam brunette as once Ava Gardner. The forties as inspiration for modern elegance and diva looks deluxe: impressive and sophisticated. “Lustrous Romance” as the perfect, feminine new fashion sphere.
