The 40’s Making a Comeback: Rolls, Flat Waves, Low Side Parts

The 40's Making a Comeback: Rolls, Flat Waves, Low Side Parts

Via ModernSalon.Com

According to Wade Blackford, a KEVIN.MURPHY Ceative Team & Style Master Educator and Creative Team Educator for Chumba Concept Salons in Australia, the ‘40s will make a big come back in summer 2014 with rolls off the face and onto the face, flat waves and very low side parts.

“Don’t think big think small,” says Blackford. “You will see messy or neat hair, but it won’t be big. Elegance is still in. Think haircut shapes from Mad Men but stylized so they don’t flatter the housewife like in the past few seasons, but more femme fatale.

‘70s Rock ‘n’ Roll haircuts are on their way back with a return to texture and a more natural feel. Color will move back toward more natural tones while brights and fluorescents “are on their way out.” Reds and Corals will be us for another season and will be featured strongly editorially.

2014 Top Men’s Trends

2014 Men's Trends

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.

2014 Men's Hair Trends.

A man’s grooming routine is often passed down from generation to generation—whether he’s guided by his father on how to shave his neck, watched his uncle comb his hair, learned to clean under his nails before a date, he will carry those experiences with him throughout his life.

For Vaughn Acord, celebrity stylist, salon owner and founder of the new V76 by Vaughn, he learned of a “relaxed handsomeness” that comes from not trying too hard.

“As with fashion, hair changes from decade to decade, and some looks never go out of style,” Acord says. “But a bob will always be a bob, whether it’s razor cut, broken, graduated or paired with bangs, it’s a bob. It’s up to the stylist to interpret that classic shape.”

What has evolved over the past three decades, he says, is hair product. And, that’s what pushed Acord to launch V76 by Vaughn, a men’s line of specific, result-producing groomers designed to be, like the bob, timeless.

“We’re all on a stage every day in some way or another—whether it’s in a boardroom, in front of a camera, on a selling floor or in a law office,” Acord says. “Ultimately, what men want is confidence.”

In this collection, featured exclusively in MODERN SALON, Acord proves when a great cut is paired with confidence, any day can be “casual Friday.”
