Get the Look: The 80’s Make a Comeback with Unite’s Renee Africa

This is not your average 80’s comeback. UNITE Global Session Education Series presents a soulful rocker edge 80’s revival with platform artist Renee Africa

According to Renee: “The inspiration for this look is a real mash-up of 80’s inspired fashion, modern color-blending and a mullet-like, but feminine soft hair cut. This time period will always influence hairdressing and fashion in some way. For me, it was when I was brought up in hairdressing and it would always leave a mark on my brain.”

Get The Look:

  1. • To achieve this look spray UNITE 7 Seconds Leave-In Condition to use as a cutting lotion.
  2. • Section the hair into a basic Mohawk type section (recession to side of nape on both sides)
  3. • Apply UNITE Expanda Volumizer to the top front of the head and then UNITE Blow & Set to the rest of the section.
  4. • Continue to blow dry the hair in preparation to style with UNITE Conundrum Paste to push the hair into the desired finished shape.

“From the apex of the head to the nape I worked a round layer pattern also short into long. The side panels were cut short to long from the parietal ridge to the existing length along the side of the head, using slightly diagonal back sections. The basic mohawk section was cut using the apex of the head as a starting point. Working from the apex to the front hairline short to long using a round layer technique to create a bit more softness and removing bulk. The end result being that the entire crown area is the shortest and the front hairline and nape being left longer and the sides being the shortest with softness around the edges giving a soft but mullet feel to the look.”
