CUT & COLOUR TECHNIQUE: METALLIC GRADUATION
Akos Bodi and Katie Hartley collaborate to create a striking retro futuristic look, combining a classic bowl haircut shape with modern metallic silver.
Akos took inspiration from 1960s’ sci-fi culture, where graphic, almost comic shapes were seen as the hair trend of the future. The Graduated haircut remains a bold, striking look. It’s a strong, statement-making style that can be worn with confidence.
The round perimeter of this short blunt cut maintains a one-length aspect to the top area. Using a point cutting technique, Akos created a strong all over shape with a sharp edge.
This colour technique demonstrates creative strength and focus in the shadowing of the perimeter. Katie used a root shading technique to subtly blend shades of Charcoal into a soft and delicate Silver. The result is striking, creating contrast within the hair.
