Vintage op!

I recently went to a Debra Dietrich workshop where I learned how to create 3 styles from 1 roller set.

This was an opportunity of a lifetime! I was selected out of my school to go to the Intercoiffure Rising Star competition in Miami. The theme I was given was "Street". Immediately I started to do some research. I looked up the street styles in different parts of the world. From Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco to the Harajuku District in Japan, I was inspired.  After all my finishing touches, here is what I came up with:

The haircut I did was inspired from Takashi from Paul Mitchell. I added my own touches with some blunt fringe and disconnection. I have learned a lot of point-cutting and refining which I was able to utilize in the two toned fringe.
Yellow is a favorite color of mine. It being extremely bold, I thought it would make a fine statement with my street style. I threw in a little graffiti in the back, with the orange, and felt complete.
