If bold, edgy-cool cuts and colours are your go-to style, get ready to feast your eyes on Toni&Guy’s Socialized Collection 2015/2016. Featuring 14 looks – 12 for women and two for men – this dynamic collection demonstrates top-class hairdressing techniques and exudes the electrifying high fashion air that Toni&Guy personifies.
From ultra-short graphic shapes juxtaposed against eye skimming fringes, to long distressed textures intensified by captivating colour palettes, it takes guts – resolute, ironclad guts – to own these looks. But when you do, you know you’ve got a statement style right there.
With each look inspired by an iconic moment in fashion and pop culture, we picked out six of our favourite styles for short, medium and long hair lengths from the Toni&Guy Socialized Collection 2015/2016.
Short Length: The Soraya
The shortest cut in the collection and definitely not one for the faint-hearted, The Soraya is named after London-based female model, Soraya, who is known for walking the menswear shows. It features a rounded off crown and a heavy blunt fringe cut with a monochromatic tone to reflect a strong, masculine outlook.
Short Length: The Ikon
The Ikon, on the other hand, is a fiery retro red based off Prada’s annual ‘Iconoclast’ exhibition, where a red-hair model once fronted the campaign. The quirky double fringe adds to the enigmatic look.
Medium Length: The Bronte
Drawing inspiration from three eras – seventies’ rock and roll, eighties’ mullet and nineties’ undercut – The Bronte is a modern interpretation of “Bronte”, a Greek goddess associated with thunder.
Medium Length: The Instalux
Taking references from Tom Ford’s distressed texture, Marc Jacob’s fringes and Onitsuka Tiger’s grown out fringe seen on the runways, the Instaluxe is a nineties rock chick style that is fierce and incredibly sexy. Its combination of electric violet and sunset purple is derived from traditional Japanese dye.
Long Length: The Modette
A remake of the sixties silhouette, The Modette models after 1960s girl group, The Ronettes. Creating shapes and textures using hair accessories, this look is not only extremely wearable, it is also a great alternative to our everyday warm-weather hairstyles.
Long Length: The Teddy Girl
For major street cred, go for The Teddy Girl. An ode to Britain’s first female youth culture, The Teddy Girl emanates attitude and toughness by the truckload. Small and big braids give the overall look a textured, rough structure to put you right on the vibrant street scene.
