It’s all about practical and functional results as silhouettes continue to dip into simplicity mirroring the new lifestyle of the youth movement seeking personal connection in all they do. The past is where we learn and the future is where we apply it. What keeps relatable looks like a shag, a bob or a pixie connected to the present are designs that have a familiar ring, but have a much softer look and a modern silhouette that is loose and inflated for a sense of leisurely ease. The haircut is back as we return to the craft of haircutting with clever structural lines to create interesting surfaces that can be tailored to any design. Imagine contradictions that attract attention and add intrigue to the look, as the method of layering seems to continue to evolve with detached irregular patterns and clashing fractured layers that are tiered back to front and top to bottom. And yet, the simple has become more complex when it comes to the finish, as it is subtle attitudes that make the hair come alive. Textures have a connection to nature. They are organic, naturally occurring textures even though they are often created with advanced techniques, products, and tools. INSPIRATIONAL HAIR JOURNEY Join the Matrix Artistic Directors Daniel Roldan and Michael Albor as they take you on an inspirational journey of hair color, hair cutting trends and hairstyling techniques. An accomplished hairstylist and North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) Finalist from NYC, Daniel launched his career in Cleveland as a salon owner then joined the Matrix education team in 2001. Daniel travels the globe, sharing his unique talent and expertise — some of his favorite places to visit include Croatia, Hong Kong and Bali, though he continues to draw most of his inspiration from his hometown New York City. While he’s best known for his cutting skills, he is valued for his worldly views and insight to the evolving hair profession. Nominated eleven times by the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA), Michael Albor is one of Boston’s most talked-about stylists. Born and raised in Miami, he attended fashion school in the hope of working in the fashion industry but along the way discovered his true passion was hair. While Michael has received rave reviews in all aspects of hair care, from haircuts to extensions and beautiful event updos, he would tell you that color and form are his true passions. Is the braid parade over? On the contrary… it’s turned into a braid block party. Again, the sensibility of the street has inspired a turn towards tighter knots and plats that hug the head moving into highly contrasted organic textures living side by side in harmony.
