Trending: Inspired by Van Gogh

You know how it goes when your client’s headed to the salon to get their hair colored, expect pics of their favorite celebs and models for reference. But there is a chance your client’s inspo may come from a different type of art – we’re talking the museum-worthy kind.

Ursula Goff, Kansas-based hair colorist, turns the hair of her clients into recreations of classic art pieces. Ever thought you’d see Van Gogh’s Starry Night spread across some locks? Neither did we. But we’re definitely glad we did. Goff replicates the paintings on hair extensions to preserve the color from regular washing. And as with any real masterpiece, the looks take hours to complete. But she’s the real deal – after taking a look at her IG, we think Goff should add “hair artist extraordinaire” to her resume.

I entered this in the BTC one shot contest last year, but I’m entering it again because I love it and I’m sort of proud of it and it was hard as hell to get right. Plus, it’s super weird and you know I love my weird shit. #behindthechair #btconeshot_vibrant17 #btconeshot_unconventionalcolor17 #expressionism #edvardmunch #thescream #arthair #paintingsonhair

If there was some kind of hair Museum (someone makes that happen), we’d be the first in line to see this exhibit.

I wore this Kandinsky hair weft in my hair at the Behind the Chair show last year and @marybehindthechair was petting it while we chatted, lol. I love this painting so much I also just bought a giant rug with this design on it for the lobby of my salon. Painting this was one of my favorite projects this last year, but I’m working on some new ones that are pretty fun, too. Gonna try to get those up in the next few weeks… #behindthechair #btconeshot_vibrant17 #btconeshot_unconventionalcolor17 #kandinsky #wassilykandinsky #abstracthair #synesthesia

Reborn: The Perm

With the fashion and beauty world, it’s only expected that everything old becomes new again. Just like nude lips, the top-knot and high-waisted jeans, the hairstyle that dominated the 80s is making a comeback. Yes, it’s exactly what you think it is: the perm *shudders*. But this time, we don’t totally hate it.

Women are starting to turn to a modern twist on the classic perm in order to achieve the highly desired beachy texture. The perms we’re used to are characterized by their tight waves, curly bangs, excessive amounts of hairspray, and the “higher the hair, closer to god” mantra. But today, it’s all about the beachy look that you see on the red carpet.

The modern perm’s goal is to create more movement in the hair and shy away from those ultra-tight curls. And with that, the perm is slowly being rebranded into a wave technique instead of a curling one. Think Blake Lively – her wavy, tousled hair has been on trend for years and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, explaining the heightened interest in perms as a more permanent solution.

But like many hairstyles, it’s up for interpretation.

It can be more voluminous or more textured and tousled.

@juleshough woke up with the #901waves ?? all thanks to @olaplex and her fresh new #perm! #ninezeroone #901girl

The ‘80s just called, they want their perm back..but we’ve decided to keep it.

Whatchu lookin’ at?

Season’s Best Festival Styles

As the summer months creep upon us, a new season arrives…and we aren’t talking about the weather. Festival season is here and we’re dying to channel our inner Coachella goddess. But in order to stand out in the crowd, your style’s got to be unique, funky and functional- sans the flower crown of course.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for a good flower crown, but we think festival hairstyles could use a bit of an upgrade. So ditch the crown and try one of our fave festival ‘dos this season.

Picture your hair three days after your last wash – greasy, drab and definitely not festival ready. That’s nothing a little (or a lot) of glitter can’t fix.
