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.

What more can we say, other than the fact that the very definition of pumpkin spice can be seen in Miami Fever. It has the perfect blend of orange and caramel, with a hint of red in it, and KathleenLights created it (she is awesome). Plus it’s matte, which is so in right now, and it lasts for hours!

MAC Lipstick "Chili"

MAC Chili, described as a brownish orange-red, is pumpkin spice, but a little bit brighter. Definitely a head-turner -- if you’re the type who loves bright and neon lipsticks, this is the one for you!

Perfect for those who don’t like overly matte lips, this color will will make you look like you’ve been drinking pumpkin spice lattes since you were born.

For a sheer version, Clarins’ Spiced Orange is a wonderful and easy way to sport pumpkin spice if you’re not yet that comfortable wearing such a bold color. This lippie will give you a beautiful wash of burnt orange on your lips as well as hydrate them throughout the day, because no one wants chapped lips.

Got an inspiring woman in your life? Well, then she deserves a treat! This holiday season, grab the chance to shower her with gifts that reflect her strong-minded spirit and independent drive. This goes beyond just a gesture and admiration for her incredible spirit; but it's also an open declaration that you understand the kind of woman that she is--one that you aspire to be.

So here are five gifts that any strong-minded, independent woman will thank you for.

--------------------------


A Good Read: A Motivational Book



Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg


Women stick together, sharing life-lessons and wisdom with one another to create a circle of strong-minded women who support and encourage each other through life. So share that gift of wisdom through a motivational book, much like this one from Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook. In Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, Sheryl Sandberg explains what it takes to be an effective leader while sharing her personal stories to empower women to reach their true potential.

A White Power Suit



Wool Blazer & Flared Pants


When it comes to business, image is everything (aside from wit and a sharp mind). So a polished power suit will make all the difference when it comes to commanding attention in the boardroom. A sleek power suit, like this ensemble from Pallas, will make a fabulous gift for the woman who has the confidence to rock an all-white suit without staining it with coffee during the morning rush. It's sophisticated chic at its best.



A Classic Tote



Marc Jacobs The Grand Majestic Leather Tote


Smart and driven women are all about staying organised. So help them do it in style with a classic handbag that comes with compartments and zipped pockets for her documents, gadgets, and makeup kit. Pick a style that easily goes from day-to-night, like this leather tote from Marc Jacobs that's perfect for both a business meeting and after work cocktails.



A Skincare Treat



SK-II ‘Wings of Change’ Facial Treatment Essences


Nothing boosts confidence more than a healthy, luminous glow. So gift her with a skincare product that commits itself to empowering women with the promise of beautiful, crystal clear skin. Inspired by two winged creatures – the butterfly and the hummingbird – the “Wings of Change” SK-II Limited Edition Facial Treatment Essence series is all about transformation and the capacity to take flight and soar to new heights. Truly a meaningful gift that she’ll appreciate. 


Choose from SK-II Iconic Set at SGD $259 / RM620; SK-II Flawless Beauty Set at SGD $558 / RM1,410; SK-II Beauty Blossom Set at SGD $348 / RM852; and SK-II Age Protect Set at SGD $478 / RM1,181.



A Stylish Workout Gear



Lululemon Drop It Like It’s Hot Leotard


A strong, healthy body equates to a strong and sharp mind. So keep her on top of her fitness game with functional exercise gear that’s a lot more stylish than the usual tank and track pants combo.
