The curtain fringe.
So old mate fringe was so spur of the moment. My appointment with @marthabodahaircutters was booked to go darker again and not to cut it. Ended up doing a big chop, lighter, and rocking some bangs. So random. Anyhoo… I wasn’t overly sure about it but thought what the heck my hair grows back SO quick. BUT THEN all you crazy cats have been so beautiful & positive with your comments… I think old mate fringey might be here to stay!! I do have to stop my hubby from jumping me everyday, though. I had a fringe when we first got together so I think there’s a bit of 19 year old reminiscing going on ????????
Next year you can expect every third woman you follow on Instagram to possess the “curtain fringe” (you know, that long, sweeping fringe that parts in the middle). The haircut has seen a 600% increase in searches on Pinterest and celebrities and bloggers are on the bandwagon (hello Selena Gomez and Sophie Cachia).
“Let your hairstylist know how much time you have to style your hair. This will help them cut you the perfect curtain shape with the right texture to suit your routine,” recommends Raw Salon colour director and advanced stylist, Stella Greenwood.
Customised beauty products.
Ever wished you could mix one lipstick with another to make the perfect shade? Or could find a skincare regimen that targeted your acne and your dryness? Now you can. A wave of new brands offering customised beauty products are gaining momentum.
Ee Ting Ng, founder of customised skincare company, Hop & Cotton, says people are turning away from a one-size-fits-all approach to beauty. “People who are unable to find a solution for their skin issues, or those unwilling to compromise with off-the-shelf products, are starting to turn towards customisation to get exactly what they need,” she explains.
From lipstick (try The Lip Lab), to fragrance (try Fleurage or Aromantik), to foundation (Lancôme’s custom-made foundation Le Teint Particulier will be coming to Australia in the not-too-distant future), to face oils (try The Buff), the future is personalised.
