Cosmetologists Chicago Introduces "Jet-Setting" for Spring 2015

Taking inspiration from around the globe, the Cosmetologists Chicago photo trend team creates rocker-chic, uber-cool looks in its JET-SETTING collection for Spring 2015. The fashion statement is rocker-goes-romantic, and the hair vibes are soft textured and chic. These are looks to be worn by headliners, the in-crowd, and girls who just want to have fun.

In describing the collection, Co-Director Karen Gordon, of J. Gordon Designs, Chicago, notes, "Jet-Setting is sexy, but romantic; it's chic and fashion forward. We saw a trend leaning towards the 70s during Spring Fashion Week, but not in a retrospective way. Jet-Setting styles provide a new, chic response to the straight hair we've seen for years.

"We're such a multicultural society now," adds Gordon, "Hairdressers and clients want more texture in the hair to reflect that. Clients don't want to take away the natural texture of their hair. They want touchable, soft hair…that looks cool, is sculptural and moves."

"I really enjoyed being a part of this shoot," noted Co-Director John Gialluisi while on set. "From the 70s inspired trend, which was right on point, to the team that was great to work with and our collaboration with the photographer Babak. It was an awesome experience!"
