Leigh Lezark, DJ and model, mixes spinning vinyl with strutting stuff on runways, or for magazines like Nylon and Vogue. Ergo, she’s on the vanguard of music and fashion, which makes her a role model for many of the young, hip and chic. Not a surprise then, that she’s capturing attention for this Twiggy-terrific, short style. An oh-so-cute pixie cut that fits in with the sixties trend currently sparking, the head-hugging curvature and the few wispy bits behind the ears help to keep it feminine, flirty, fun. The short style exposes all the wonderful features in Leigh’s pretty face, while the angled side-part, going down and across in the perfect way, encourages focus on her beguiling eyes.

Usually right on cue, Nylon’s Japanese cover is an indicator of the hair trends to come. The lived-in texture with undulations ranging from soft ‘C’ shapes to more curvaceous, strong ‘S’ shapes tells us that tousle and flow is very much go. The bronzy brown top that switches to a brighter golden tone tells us that dark to light colors can still be done (though subtle is usually better than stark). And the indiscriminate, imperfect braid tells us there’s a lot of scope for freedom and individuality in the beatnik style. Another great thing about wearing a simple braid: When you take it out, you’ll have great texture to play with.

A trend that we are noticing in the salon more and more is clients letting their layers grow out in search for a more classic, dare we say long ‘one length’ hair cut. The upside to these shapes is increased versatility when styling. The added length adds weight to curly hair, helping it fall into a looser, wavier shape –– rather than full-blown curls.  Styles like these are also great when you want to achieve a sleeker finish.
