FADE WITH DESIGN

THE TIMELESS, EVER EVOLVING LOOK

While the first Fades hit the hair scene in the 1930’s, its popularity soared in the 40’s and 50’s when it became the style of choice for men in the military. The fade also saw a spike in popularity again in the 80’s and hasn’t stopped since! Adding to this classic look, is a free hand design, commonly known as ‘hair tattooing’ or ‘hair art’. This technique gives you complete artistic control to create anything from subtle lines to flamboyant designs.

"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!"
