2023 GLOBAL COLLECTION - DESIGNER

Haircuts and styles anyone can wear.

These textured haircuts are a balance between masculinity and femininity.

THE SHAG

A UNIVERSAL LOOK

With gorgeous longer layers from the crown, with or without bangs, curly, wavy or straight, the Shag is universally flattering. Today’s Shag cuts are generally worn with an effortless soft look, allowing the wearer to let their natural texture run free.

"My inspiration for my portion of the shoot was the bridge between the worlds of the salon and the barbershop. We have a tendency to place a gender on a haircut and that creates limits on what we can achieve. The clipper is just a paintbrush and without the artist it has no effective purpose. We give the clipper life and the more we can venture outside of our comfort zone the more we find personal and professional growth."

"The inspiration for the shoot was to create a combination of current and upcoming trends for the future of our industry to recreate and inspire to. The looks provide a variety of traditional barbering, fashion fades, modern hairdressing and forward hair styling to cater for all levels within our industry."

This cut is easy to adjust and suits for any genders. I love the gender neutral hairstyle."

"What I loved was seeing how everyone drew inspiration from their own environments and the cultures that they are surrounded with. For me, including some Korean influence is very true to the styles that are popular in Asia right now. Incorporating these influences together is what makes it a truly global collection!"
