Hairstyles of yesteryear

As I continue to expand on’s 2011 hairstyles guide I keep returning the point that the majority of what’s in for the year is a modernisation of hairstyles that were dominant in years gone by. With impeccable timing Maxi magazine arrives to give their own take on precisely what those dominant hairstyles were, including this particular look that illustrates where I feel the on-trend bob with bangs hairstyle will eventually evolve to.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of’s co-founders.
