This spring, star hairstylist Eugene Souleiman and colorist Josh Wood are taking inspiration from vintage photographs and Hitchock heroines — and adding a punk twist.
"The shade of the [wine-colored] highlights is called 'rosewood.' It's a take on the purple streaks grunge girls used to do, with a softness that's purposeful, not weak," Wood notes.

Clinique Kohl Shaper for Eyes in Black Kohl. Top, Peter Som; scarf, Echo; headband, Jennifer Behr.
"The new blonde has deliberate roots," says Wood. "There's drama to it," adds Souleiman. "Like Tippi Hedren when the birds got to her. What I love about this look is that there's also a playful, boudoir feeling."

"This is inspired by Daphne Guinness, but asymmetrical and represents opulent, youthful glamour," notes Souleiman, who bought the headband for a couple of dollars in Paris' Chinatown. "The difference between this and gray is that the highlights are metallic," says Wood.
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Lipstick SPF 15 in #7 Lingerie Pink. Jacket, shorts & bag, Chanel; belt, D&G; sunglasses, Dior; headband, hairstylist's own.
"What I'm seeing for spring is hair taking on a vintage feel. It's not your mother's, but your grandmother's look meets 2011. Let's call it 'granny punk,'" declares Souleiman.
