They say that retro is the new black, and that must be the case with hairstyles as well. We reported on a few new trends including the Ombre Color Streaming trend as well as the Best of Spring/Summer 2011 Hair Styles. But the latest trend to hit the scene is Hair Crimping (yes, think Boy George circa 1984!).

To find more about this buzzing trend, we sat down for a little Q&A with Michael Angelo, the founder and celebrity hair stylist of the Wonderland Beauty Parlor located in NYC’s uber-trendy Meat Packing District.

BeautyStat: Why do you see this trend coming back?

Michael Angelo: There’s a huge “punk” thing happening in the big fashion glossies right now (it’s been happening for a while on the street and in edgier mags) and crimps hearken back to those classic Siouxsie Sioux/Madonna/Robert Smith looks that so defined “cool” in the early 80’s.

This spring we are seeing textural extremes everywhere and a crimping iron can be used to add a variety of textures depending on how its used. It can be used gently for a slight fuzz or firmly for a crisp kink. The whole head can be crimped for maximum impact or a crimper can be used more discreetly to add volume or structure to a style.

BeautyStat: What hair type would this work best for?

Its really an incredible effect on just about any hair type… Fine hair benefits from the volume, curls are instantly subdued, and big hair becomes an 1984 extravaganza when crimped.

BeautyStat: How long does the process take?

MA: That all depends on the length and thickness of the hair. I would plan on 45 minutes in general.

BeautyStat: How long does it last?

MA: Ultimately it’s an iron set, so only lasts until it get wet.

BeautyStat: How do you maintain it?

MA: Crimping it a one shot deal. SO keep it dry, use dry shampoo to extend the life of any iron styling, and make sure to do a moisturizing treatment like Shu Uemura Art of Hair’s Moisture Velvet Masque after it’s washed out to hep the hair recover from so much heat. Prior to crimping it’s a GREAT idea to use a thermal protectant like Shu Uemura Art of Hair’s Iron Design or Ciment Thermique from Kerastase to keep the hair safe from high temperatures and high pressure of the iron.

  1. Having naturally curly hair, I love the volume and texture I already have and have concerns about the heat, even w/a thermal styling product. I do like the look and would love to use it on a model for a photo shoot sometime soon.
