Designers can't seem to get enough of the 1960s. This season, it's the bowl cut's turn to make a comeback onto the catwalks. Longer than the tomboy cut
, will the bowl cut manage to make it onto the high street? The bowl cut on the catwalks.
Irresistibly feminine, the catwalk version of the bowl cut is nothing like the hairstyle sported by young boys at nursery school. Hair is straight and cut to the exact millimetre for an urban, glam'rock result. The colour is glossy and the traditional centre parting
is replaced with a side-parting. A side fringe
adds structure to the style and gives the bowl cut a touch of modernity. What elements will we keep?
The hairstyle's 60s, avant-garde vibe. Provocative, glossy and structured, only go for this hairstyle if you're sure you'll be able to make regular trips to your hairdresser's
. The originality of the bowl cut seen on the catwalks is a result of it being cut to the exact millimetre. A haircut like this needs to be looked after. For a modern, feminine version of the bowl cut, keep the side fringe. How to wear it.
Exactly like it is worn on the Jean-Charles de Castelbajac catwalk. Remember that for such a radiant, dynamic look, forget highlights and other such colouring techniques
: the bowl cut needs to be worn on glossy, even-coloured hair. Don't forget that the side fringe gives the cut a girly touch and leaves it feeling hip and sexy. © Pixelformula/Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Prêt-à-Porter show, Spring-Summer 2013 © Jean Louis David
