    Excellent in Platinum

    How do you become the highlight of any party? With a cool short cut in ice blonde. Trendsetter heads are resplendent in various nuances of the popular colour, including the sought after platinum. This look works especially well with an asymmetrically cut pixie, making it appear not just delicate but also striking and hip. A good hairline: With this colour trend, gradually letting the colouration grow out is OK and lends the ice blonde Nordic colouring an ultra-modern touch. Celebrate this beautiful contrast!

    Turn up the Volume

    Hair aplenty makes for a grand appearance at any event. Even short cuts can be pushed to the top of the styling league. All you need is volumising powder: Apply the magic powder to dry hair on the crown and at the hairline, then carefully massage it in – the uplifting effect sets in right away! Tips defined with hair wax (slightly twirled) lend a playful, feminine touch to the look

    Pure Glamour

    The sleek style stands for pure elegance: Simple and dramatic in one, the smooth gel look is among the highlights of festive evening hairstyles. Short sleek hair looks classy, sophisticated and super modern. In contrast to long hair where only the hairline is usually styled in the wet look, this look is 'wet' all over although the tips can stay dry too. Clear lines are everything with this extravagant hairstyle: The ends of the hair lie flat at the back of the neck and a low, diagonal site parting structures the sleek style. Great topping: Fine single strands styled onto the forehead with wax or gel
