Great post! Vika’s haircut is fierce! I particularly like the subtlety of the top shot, the soft wool and curves of her body contrasting with the sharp pleats of her skirt and the detail on her shoes. It even picks up in her make up with her eyes quite hard and hair soft. Inspirational.
I’m not usually a fan of geometrical, achingly hip haircuts, but this woman really works it. I also like her contrast of hard versus soft which she does in an original way. There are so many floaty dresses paired with tough shoes going around; this is a refreshing twist.
Love it! Vika can carry a hair cut like this because she dresses the part. It’s a total look from head to toe. I love short hair but it’s high maintenance. You would have to get it cut every couple of weeks to keep it looking fresh.
I think this haircut is innovative. I know it had its moment in the 80′s, too, but the fringe is perfect with a great angle and the proportion of fringe to higher shape in the back is really, really good. On the technical side of things, there is a little blendy part right over the ear that needs to be part of that straight line in the back. way cool and refreshing to see someone pull off this look who is young and beautiful. It’s hair model at a hair show hair.
I love the effect of shot # 1! The softness of her skirt blends beautifuly with her top, and the Hair is just perfect for this style! Bold dark eyes to go with the soft texture of her attire. Stunning.
The first pic is exactly the reason to click on every pic to enlarge it. Only when I did, did I see all the great textures she put together from the light of that great skirt to the batwings of that incredible sweater. And the drops!
I adore this look — what a modern day Sally Bowles might look like after rehab. The hair is magnetic and the soft and slouchy clothes lend an air of humanity and warmth to what could be a cold geometry lesson. Well played.
This is fantastic – she reminds me of a friend of my parents in the early to mid 80′s who was devoted to Matsuda and so many soft shouldered, drapey garments, but always had incredibly razor sharp hair. I think she even had it cut once a week.
That top photo has had me pondering for days : what magic made her pick those three items in her wardrobe (grey jumper + pleated, white skirt + shoes), all so dull when taken apart from one another, and all so brilliant, witty, stylish and I should even say obvious when brought together ?… I guess “an inner sense of style” is the answer, and this photo is yet another reminder that it’s not those who try the hardest who achieve it. I happen to like that a lot.
