Every city has its own aesthetic. New York can never seem to fully shake the eighties. Paris is tied indefinitely to the chicness of a scarf. London is the home of both preppy and punk. Combining the two influences, this short shape feels both buttoned-up and roughed-up. Frayed edges counter classic lines in this outgrown shape that pairs equally well with leather and polos.

Step: This shape combines head hugging layers, rugged texture and extended length that dusts collar and brows, and covers the ears.

Step:  At home, cleanse with gentle shampoo and conditioner for shine and light moisture that won’t weigh down strands.

Step: To style, apply a quarter of hair creme roots to ends. Rough dry with finger or allow to dry naturally. Add a nickel of defining cream and refine texture as desired.
