Why hair crimping is still cool

Remember hair crimping?!  Neither did I.  Until Shu Uemura Art of Hair invited me to be part of the Haigo Artist training session where some of the most talented stylists from around the country learn about the hottest new trends in hair.

A huge craze circa 1994 when celebs from Fergie to Alanis Morisette and even Tyra Banks were getting involved, the trend hadn’t entered my mind since my Barbie doll days.


Inspired by Japanese design icons, my look was dubbed Pleats Please.  Some cute assonance for my neo Geisha, slightly glam grunge ‘do.  Despite the initial shock, I’m tempted to rock this on the weekend with a dark plum lip and a leather jacket.  90s grunge eat your heart out.

Certainly a look for the bold – or nostalgic – no one can deny this texture is out of control.  To achieve sexy, tousled texture use a beach spray in damp hair before letting dry naturally and top up with a dry shampoo through roots to ends.

I like….Kérastase Paris Couture Styling Spray à Porter and Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry  Extender.


What do you think, are crimps making a come back?
