Keeping up with hairstyle trends

By Rita Huang
Translated by Yvonne Chen (³¯¨|¤è)

    Each season features specific hairstyles. Troubled about taking a chance with the latest hairstyle and whether it will suit you?

    Hairstyle trends of the fashion world are divided into factions, from which so-call trends are taken. And as factions go, they are divided into "Euro-American" and "Japanese".

    The Euro-American faction designers are trained in renowned hairstyle schools in Europe and America. Known for strict teachings, aesthetics and tradition, these schools take an artistic approach with emphasis on cutting techniques, hair styling product application and the overall appearance, which exhibit slick, simple, natural and bold qualities. Many known European and American brands have taken charge into the Taiwanese market: Sassoon, L'Oreal, TIGI and Mod's Hair with its intense image building campaign.

    The Japanese faction in Taiwan focuses on hairstyle products and has a loyal following of Japanese-style salon designers. The hairstyles imitate those of Japanese celebrities such as Takuya Kimura. The Japanese cutting method is known for creating light, floating hair. The hairstyles often result in two extremes, adorable or overly mature. They also tend to perm hair to achieve stylistic changes.

    Another indication of hairstyle trend is fashion show models' hairstyles. However, how do we choose when they are sporting fake bangs at one show and straight ponytails at another? Asian features make it difficult to whip up different looks for your hairs. My recommendation is choose whichever suits you.
Hairstyle trends take turns whether they are from renowned salon shows or by great designers. What matter is to choose a hairstyle that suits you and your hair type; a healthy-looking hairstyle is important for showing off a confident you!
