It’s getting haute in here…Direct from Sydney, Australia, comes this graphic coif from hair artist Sharon Blain. Part of Blain’s “Futurism” collection, this design harnesses a brave new energy of couture-inspired hair with a cool artistic edge. The concept behind the collection? “I always see hair as fabric. Hair can be molded and worked exactly the same as a piece of fabric,” shared the stylist. “In runway shows, laser-cut pieces have become very strong. I wanted to explore if hair could be cut the same way, hence ‘Futurism’ was created.” Are you loving the future of style?
