Meant to inspire creativity AND act as a practical guide, ESSENTIAL LOOKS 1.2015 highlights three key trends for spring/summer 2015: Pearlescent Girls, Hippi Glam and Rock Chik.

2014 was a year of bold hair. Shorter cuts replaced long, flowing locks as the dominant hair trend of cool girls everywhere, and bright, rainbow colors - like "slime green," teal, and orange - moved from punk to popular as A-listers donned rainbow-colored strands on stage and on the red carpet. Meanwhile, both the bob and the "lob" (or, long bob) had their moment in the sun, taking over as one of the most popular cuts of the year.

Contrast pervades the Athena Collection, the latest collection by Alan Keville for Hair. Strong, sharp shapes are juxtaposed with muted, feminine tones. Keville drew his inspiration from "female warriors of Greek mythology, integrated with influences [from] the Joan of Arc era." Metallic fashion details perfectly capture the idea of medieval times while interesting hair shapes and textures allude to the notion of the powerful, warrior woman. Described by Keville as "an armored beauty," the Athena Collection is a stunning display of contrast.
