According to Luis Alvarez, Aquage co-founder, the bold approach to men’s fashion demands new groomers that focus on ultra-vivid, unexpected texture. “While many seem ever-fascinated with the fade, there are so many ways to take men’s grooming beyond the hair cut through transforming texture with salon products,” Alvarez says.
“With men, it’s that little bit of off that’s so on right now,” Alvarez says. “They can now dress their hair without having to use a pomade or traditional men’s product. Guys don’t layer like women do—they stick to one product.” It’s all about product selection, he says, that makes the difference.”

It makes sense that the annual Costume Institute Gala is one of the most glamorous evenings of the year; the Met Ball kicks off the Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. With great fashion comes great hair, and we have a selection of some of the best, most fashionable styles from the 2014 event.
Ponytails come and go, but the hardware Eugene Souleiman incorporated into textured urban ponytails for the Missoni Spring/Summer 2014 show at London Fashion Week will be hard to forget – WOW!

It all started in 1977 when sisters Snooky and Tish Bellomo offered interesting, fun and eclectic items in their St. Mark’s Place store in NYC. No other store could compete with their hot and fun beauty products so the sisters ran with it…especially their fun hair colors. Credited with beginning the trend (and a leader in the category), devoted fans still count on Manic Panic to help them express their own color wheel. Cyndi Lauper, a fan of the yellow, once called in a Manic “Panic” as she was low on her stash.
When not attending trade shows, Snooky and Tish (not hairdressers) perform as back up singers in a rock band, but it appears their true passion is sporting vibrant hair colors. Snooky always stays in the blue family while Tish stays pinkish, but loves to play around.
MODERN caught up with the ever fabulous Snooky and Tish to learn about their own shades and to learn more them. They really are fantastic.
Matrix Professional Haircare and Color Artistic Educator Adam Sculnick took inspiration from the 1950s pop art movement for his latest collection. He shared his color formulas, styling techniques and his thoughts on the collection with MODERN.
“The bold colors, contrasting textures and impacting images of the women of cartoons and 1950s pop art trend inspired !Pop!,” Sculnick says. “My collection of colors, cuts and styles are crafted after legendary trends like Jessica Rabbit, Roy Lichtenstein and the Archie comics.”
Sculnick says this is his largest project to-date and was excited for the challenge of recreating classic cartoon imagery in a modern, evolved way.
Slicked back hair with shaved sides and an undercut back has dominated the runways and magazines since last year. The trend is still going strong, especially for men with wavy, curly, and thick hair that benefit from significant pruning. This clean cut yet edgy look isn’t going anywhere but has constant variations depending on personal style. This style will sit through at least the first quarter of 2014.
