supreme style

Interview with Hair Stylist RENYA XYDIS
Which hair trends do you love for S/S’08?
Fringes are big with a loose soft messy wave. It’s a great way to update your look without taking off overall length. Kate Moss wears this well. Balliage and sponging for colour – a look that has the effect of not trying yet the colour is sensational.

How can we get the look?
Firstly, ask your stylist or colourist for their advice they will access your face shape and colouring. Having a fringe isn’t as tricky as people think in fact it’s really easy to look after. Then all you need to do is style the fringe and apply ghd Fat Hair, $35, to the ends for that messy tousled finish. If your hair is dirty you can cheat and just wash the fringe and leave the rest of your hair until you get a salon blow-dry.

What product could you not live without?
Wella High Hair Ocean Spritz, $21.50. It gives hair a rough feel and loads of volume that holds your style.

the Naked and Famous

The next in a line of friends that I have found to be either naked or famous... and in this case BOTH

paraphrased and flip reversed: Quite possibly the best band you’ve never heard (yet) with a debut EP “This Machine” released May 5th through Round Trip Mars (home to SJD, Phelps & Munro, James Duncan, Unitone HiFi etc), they are already further down the track than many who have been around a lot longer. The band, named after a line from a Tricky song, are based around the ferociously talented pairing of composer/control freak Thom Powers and vocal siren/lyricist Alisa Xayalith, though they operate as a 4 piece live. The Naked And Famous are about to step out. You have been warned. “THIS MACHINE” 6 TRACK EP, OUT NOW
