Just when I was having a severe hair slump, up pops some majorly fierce hair inspiration to shake me outta that rut.
The 2014 OMC Hairworld World Cup (yes, you read right: this is the WORLD CUP of hair styling) took place in Frankfurt, Germany in early May.
The event, which takes place annually, features the avant garde and outrageously creative work of hair crafters from 50 corners of the globe.
Across 38 styling categories, the artists extraordinaire crafted everything from fierce bouffants, edgy muti-coloured and multi-dimensional bowl cuts, bee-inspired ‘dos and crazy feathered, coloured styles with fish scale shapes sculpted into the nape, highlighted by splashes of neon brights.
Some seriously impressive work on display! Worth a look if you are seeking some inspiration for an outlandish ‘do for yourself or a shoot! Or perhaps even a wedding or work function?
Time to put down the crimper and hair chalk and take notes:
