Ruth Roche, Artistic Ambassador for Pureology Serious Colour Care, debuted three cuts for Fall 2014 inspired by shape-over-shape, mixed mediums and the 60’s. It started with the 60’s Bob, then the Modern Pixie and now, Modern Geometric.“This Modern Geometric cut incorporates the ‘menswear for women’ and 60’s vibes of the season. It’s a short cut with more texture than the original 60’s look, the undercutting echoes the ‘shape on shape’ trend, and the vibrant red color really makes it pop,” says Roche.
