There are many adjective to describe women, such as “beautiful” “pretty” “cute”, however the term I like the most is “elegant.”
The first person that Unique Piece would like to introduce is Ms. Motonaka, a 44 years old lady who definitely has “elegance” in her style.
Ms. Motonaka works as an office secretary. She likes chic style, so she chooses mainly monotone colors for her wardrobe, then add some bright accent. She goes to nail salon every 20 days and her favorites are chic gradation colors.
Her short bob hairstyle add “elegant” look to her style.
After growing her hair, she decided to go back to short hair she used to have.
Mr. Shinomoto, her hair stylist recommended a style with a sense of progressive mode style rather than conservative look. He cuts her chin hair length graduated bob, which are stacked layers cut shorter in the back, longer in the front that give a good structure.
For easy styling and arrangement, Mr. Shinomoto left her hair longer around her face so she can enjoy 2 different styles. For hair color, he apply highlight and lowlight next to each other on her top front hair to give sharp and cool impression. Her hair style is based on precise assesment of her hair stylist.
Ms. Motonaka does not have so much gray hair, but even having some gray hair would be combined with Mr. Shinomoto’s magical coloring, and make it look natural.
Mr. Shinomoto also mix with pink color to give an accent which can be seen – so cool!
Ms. Motonaka started to play golf half year ago. Her bob style must look good on the golf course.
