City Bird of Paradise in the Urban Jungle

The City Bird of Paradise woman loves to stand out in a crowd. She has a distinct quirkiness about herself and is not always taken seriously. She lives to have fun and find the hottest party.

She likes to create her own unique look. Much like the modern Moulin Rouge girl or Madonna in her "like a virgin" days. (Model above & to the side: photos - Hollies, Hairdresser - Masatomo Takahashi - Japan - Photographer - Gilles-Marie Zimmermann).

City Bird of Paradise Hairstyle

The hairstyle of a City Bird of Paradise is wild and free-spirited. The haircut is well-executed and has a loose, shaky internal structure with feathered ends. Haircolor is bold, expressive -- orange and black, though not necessarily solid colors, the use of underlying strong panels of color throughout is also the way to go.

Women with long hair will love the elaborate look of the City Bird of Paradise. (Model above & to the side - Renee - Hairdresser - Doves' City Bird Of Paradise - Photographer - Alberto Tovar)

Wella Trend Vision Workshop

For the past six year, Wella has commissioned renowned Paris research firm Trend Union to identify trends for the future. Trend Union not only identifies provocative names for the trends, they also provide details on precise definitions, colors, and fabrics and other pertinent information about the top trends. Wella AG then selects six top Wella international guest artists to their annual Trend vision Workshop to transform the presented trends into contemporary hairstyles.
