This hair cuts are interesting, a dramatic effect created by hiding a very important element in a face. At first I asked myself â€˜how can they see?â€™, but enlarging I noticed that their eyes arenâ€™t that hiddenâ€¦ I like how the woman in the top has gone all the way with that hair colour, lipstick, nail polish and retro futurist total black. Very, very interesting!
However, for everyday life, Iâ€™m not sure about this styleâ€¦ Iâ€™m always disturbed when I have a conversation with someone whose eyes you canâ€™t totally see, either because of hair or sunglasses. Some people would even believe itâ€™s rude to never reveal such an expressive part of a humanâ€™s face.
PS. Sart, you were being filmed in the first pic, werenâ€™t you? Iâ€™d like to see that footage…
PSS. I love love love the cracked blue wood in the second picture!
Great hair color! The bob with bangs is a great signature look. I love how the blue-green color is almost black which matches her nails. It’s a classic with a twist of the modern. This is very well done!
I’ve seen a lot of this lately with the bangs covering the eyes. It’s a good look on the runway, but how practical is it? How would you feel trying to have a conversation with someone whose hair is in their face and covering their eyes?
the first lady is a work of art. The colors in her hair, the fiercly severe cut of the coat at her shoulders, the black nails and dark dark lips…Smashing. As for the hair on both ladies…it’s cool but so blatently impractical. Like a woman who wears 6 inch stiletto platforms that are a size too small and winds up hobbling everywhere she goes, just to “look good”. It’s great for photography and art…even the runway..but for every day? Color me skeptical.
Hello, oh am I the first? Ok. person above: great hair color! Wonder how she managed to get it that blue… with “directions”? The color + hair cut matches great with the shape of her face and her handback. pretty artificial but straight concept. she Â´s a bit tensed, her hand looks so cramped. anyway. - person below: compared to the look above she looks much more ordinary, there are hundreds of women beeing styled like her in the streets. but I like it, though. and, big Plus: she is not skinny. I really miss pictures of normal weight women here. Its so easy to look good when you are thin. I like her tight jeans.
In the bottom photo I can’t see her eyes at all. And with the black leather and dark background the effect for me is ominous.
I really like the top photo. The shiny (teal?) hair and black jacket, the shiny black bag reflecting blues, even the photographer and car in the background – all shiny blue/black. And in spite of her clenched fist and serious expression the effect for me is the expectation of instant energy, as if she is about to fly off!
Having bangs in my eyes would drive me nuts. Obviously tricky to pull off too. In the first pic, you can still sort see her eyes and it could be interpreted as mysterious and sophisticated…second pic just looks sort of foolish, as in “Who turned out the lights?!”
this is so weird. i had a dream the other night that my hair looked like this. i love the look but oy, in my dream i was so annoyed that my hair was in my eyes. the green color is very pretty. it’s kind of an updated version of the 90′s look – anyone remember the dotcom dye jobs?
I’ve seen this haircut all over the place. While it is appealingly severe, it’s (in my opinion) too trendy. And it can look like a motorcycle helmet that is slowly falling forward over the wearer’s face …
Cuts like these are interesting because, while at the heart of it a modern interpretation of a past cut, the low-lying bang is something almost revolutionary. We’ve all seen the bob, straight-edged bangs, etc. But when cuts are unique, they complete outfits like a good hat. And good hats are rare.
It’s so severe and mysterious on her already v. defined features, but it looks great on her. And I love the blue, it adds color to her seemingly colorless wardrobe (although the pieces she works with are simply incredible)
Normally people sort of hide behind the long fringe or wild color, but the top girl so owns it in a fashionista kick butt way. She’s gorgeous. The bottom woman is more conventional- a cross between Chrissy Hynde and Joey Ramone- not that there’s anything wrong with it. Just a slightly more predictable alternative.
I really like that look, its chic without being trendy, and very classic. I’ve had bangs for about 8 years – still do. They’ve been very short to eye length and everywhere in between. I love that length but its hard to keep it from poking you in the eye. Love the blue too, how great is that!?
as two photos together i love first of all the color and pattern, also the repitition of two similar but different styles taken up by these chicks. however i dont get the ‘style’ factor and dont get how ppl can go ‘ooh fab’.
The blue color is inconsistent on too fine hair, and the bottom cut just reaks of impracticality. how many ppl would one bang into with the curtains down? johnny ramone always had eyes poking below the fringe. but we are in 2008 hey? anything goes…
this is prolly too negative for posting, however i can see why they have been published as they are’interesting’. i love the photographer being photographed.
Doesn’t anyone else think her hair is actually ridiculous and would be sure to drive even a sane person crazy? Can you imagine how many hundreds of times a day you’d be brushing them from out in front of your eyes? And also, since I’m obiviously missing the chic statement here, I’ll take my criticism one, ugly step farther . . . doesn’t she look JUST like a deranged Katie Holmes in that first shot? Someone needs to have her thetans audited . . .
Beautiful peacock gradient hair…looks very natural in a way as another comment mentioned. The boxy jacket silhouette w/ the shoulder pads complete the volumous look. Plus the fact everything is in black, slims her down and creates an even stronger boxy silhouette.
PLEASE, PLEASE! SOMEBODY HELP ME: I need to know where to go in the Seattle area for a great haircut. So far, I got hideous “layers” or the Kathy Holmes/Victoria Bekham long in the front-short in the back bob. So out! Please help me!
to momo at 11:02: I have very curly hair and after years of simple layered haircuts to simply avoid the “pyramid” look, I found a stylist that encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone. now I have a short, angled bob that I get compliments on daily! If you find someone who understands curly hair, there is so much more to do with it than we all originally think when coming to terms with our hair.
When I was 14 I tried to dye my black hair electric blue with Crazy Colour. It took me ages to pluck up the courage but I didn’t realise you had to bleach your hair first – duh! I ended up with very soft, shiny still-black hair.
When Q magazine had Chrissie Hynde answer questions from readers, one asked how she could ever see anything with her fringe over her eyes. She said (endearingly) that she can’t see a thing, and when she’s home, she just clips it right back all the time.
But how can you see?! I know…sometimes fashion is not meant to be practical. Who cares if it looks great, right? At least when you get hit by that bus when you cross the road from not being able to see, you look gorgeous!
The cuts are totaly fierce! I love it and I totally adore the lady with the Miu Miu Patent Gathered Bag which are so hard to find these days even second hand designer stores are sold out in Hong Kong.
Too bad if you look like that on the Gold Coast (Australia), people would judge you straight away! I guess it’s the Gold Coast where everyone are to scared to be different. I totally don’t belong here (Gold Coast that is).
LOVE the blue-haired gal. Her hair isn’t even just plain blue; it’s a mixture of seagreen, turqoise, and a little bit of violet on the crown, I think. It looks fantastic, especially with such a precise cut – every hair is in its place – and her pale skin. She’s totally rocking the look with that enigmatic, Mona Lisa ghost of a smile.
If she were to walk down the main city street Queen Street in Auckland, New Zealand everyone would goggle at her and wonder at her daring. Auckland is like the Gold Coast; as kee kee said, it is hard to be different and unique here, especially because NZers have a condition called Tall Poppy Syndrome (basically a fear of standing out from the crowd).
LOL @ Tina’s comment about being knocked over by a bus (’cause you can’t see where you’re going with that kind of haircut). At least your hair will look fabulous in your open casket …
i have very long bangs and i can see just fine. usually they lay just right so that people can even see my eyes. people often look more dramatic in pictures than in everyday life. keep in mind that the shadows from the bangs in these photographs make the optical area seem darker than it would face to face.
I love weirdly colored hair when it works. And it works on blue hair chick. It really requires a great cut and so many times you see these girls running around sporting pink or blue hair with grown-out styles. You gotta be chic about it or you look lazy. This lady rocks it. She even rocks something I dislike – 80′s shoulderpads. Yes…they work ON HER. Don’t try this at home youngsters.
The bottom girl calls to mind Chrissy Hines’ sexy, overgorwn bangs. A great screen to hide behind.
the ‘lady with the blue hair’ is katie shillingford from dazed & confused magazine. she used to live with gareth pugh and is one of his muses. she’s totally lovely and her hair is constantly changing colours.. and her style is always spot on
