{FAVOURITE FIND} 1930’s BAD ASS COOL DUDES PREP SCHOOL GROUP PHOTO!!!

These boys clearly know what’s up!

We love photos like these that go to prove the notion of ‘cool’ is absolutely timeless!!! We might argue that these guys bring ‘cool’ to a level that we barely even reach these daze. . .

We’re all consumed by our social media accounts, and the latest trend – meanwhile, these boys understand true camaraderie, having fun, looking good, and not taking life so seriously!

It’s fun also to imagine the in’s and out’s of these boys life outside the frame. They are, indeed, a very eclectic bunch, and who even knows what this photo was taken for?

We believe its some kind of class photo from a prep school, and judging from the wear on the photo, and their clothes – taken sometime in the 1930s. The handsome devil in the striped sweater vest in the centre of the group is obviously the ring leader. Love his buddies chilling on the stone orbs flanking the stairs.

Its photos like these that make you wish you could dive right into these photos and experience the moment – lucky for us, we have a singular moment captured forever with the magic of sunlight and silver.

We picture this framed for your home or workplace, or simply as some true style inspiration . . .

Truly Outrageous and Beautifully Bold!

You may love the hair colour you were born with, but life truly truly truly is too short to pass on an opportunity to go NEON! And why stick with just one tone, you can keep changing your locks, and go brighter and brighter than the time before. One bold head of fuschia, or maybe one strand of hot pink, with some blue tips. We say run to a local pharmacy or beauty supply store and grab a can of cheap can of spray on temporary colour, and have a hair colouring party!

This is no passing trend. Perhaps popularized by celebrity culture with star’s like Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, and Katy Perry all donning techno coloured tresses, this is a look that’s cool from the red carpet to the city streets.

Timeless on 80s icon Cyndi Lauper, you can trust to see her with some wild colour. We take some personal inspiration from cartoon rock star, Jem, and her band the Holograms, where hair and its height had nothing to do with God, it was just BIG and outrageous! Even rock/pop goddess Gwen Stefani showed off pink hair in the 90’s, unfortunately to mixed reviews proving she marches to her own fashion drummer’s beat. We don’t think the world was ready yet back then, sometimes trends and fads need some breathing time before they can come back fully in swing. But we say buck the trend! Now’s the time to show off!

This isn’t just a trend for the ladies either, this one is for all the young dudes out there! We’re seeing a lot of guys sporting colours from deep blue, to hot pink! Colour isn’t defining orientation, no no no. When we want to feel aggressive and hit the town, we pick up a can of punk’d Green, toss on a leather jacket and nobody fucks with us. Trust you can rock this style, and no one will question you.

This is truly a look that crosses the board. Whether your an Indonesian punk or an American bread grunge kid, this look is for you! People need to stand out, especially in our consumer junkie world where what’s hip and cool is in yesterday’s paper’s before it’s off store shelves. This is a simple, timeless way to add a little extra something to your signature look.

We hope to see some invitations to upcoming hair colour parties soon!
