86 beauty companies gathered to show their wares at the PHAMExpo beauty show in Pasadena this past weekend.  PHAME stands for Professional Hair and Makeup Exposition and is decidedly different than any of the other beauty trade show because it featured emerging and entertainment industry artists with fresh ideas. For those of us in the industry (me at 30 years) that want to see what is actually new, this was the show to attend.

Darico Jackson tops the hairstyle charts once again this year with his disconnected style that Keyshia Cole has made trendy worldwide. She is now in the process of changing her hair again to accommodate the growth process. This is a great lesson for all of us that have tried new styles and then want to stay stylish while during the growth process.  I will be following each style as she makes the changes.

Bangs and Bobs!  The hair forecast for fall/winter 2008 includes a plethora of bangs in any length. Long shaggy ones, long blocked ones, side swept ones, mini, short fringe, short block, round, diagonal, flipped, feathered and spiraled. You can even color them for the trendy new “Bad Girl” look. Bangs are their own service with their own identity. 

Bobs, bobs, bobs!!!  Yes, they are still here. Last I checked, they were going out…but it looks like they’re here to stay! I’m seeing long ones, short ones, medium, asymmetric, layered, high lift, wedged, flipped and my personal favorite, “team it up with bangs!” The best thing about bobs is that they all have a common uniformity that allow for versatility in style.  Use your favorite mouse or gel and scrunch some funky texture in your bob and let air dry or take your favorite wax and piece out your bangs. The results are phenomenal!
