Cara Kagan, Beauty and Fitness Director, Elle Magazine 01:00:49 "The hot trend in hair these days is texture, movement, bounce, curl - it's moving away from that total stick-straight, flat, ironed-to-the-face look that we've had for a really long time now.

(Beyonce in Goldmember, mag ads, Nike commercial)

AND EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK, FROM MOVIES TO MAGAZINE ADS TO TV COMMERCIALS - LIKE NIKE'S HOMAGE TO THE KING OF ALL HAIRSTYLES, THE 'FRO - THERE'S NO DENYING IT.

Ouidad, Hairstylist 14:45 (c/u of carving and slicing technique) "Slicing and carving is a technique that I've designed to allow the curls to sit into each other. If you notice, I am just slicing right at the curve of the curl itself. It gives the illusion of layering, it gives a lot of performance for the hair.
THERE'S NO QUESTION THAT CURLS CAN BE FABULOUS, BUT WHO SETS THESE HAIR TRENDS?
Cara Kagan 3:10 "I think it's definitely partially about the runways and what the hair dressers are doing to work with the designers and match what the clothes are. I think it's Hollywood and what the celebrities are wearing, either in their movies or on the red carpet."
STANDUP 18:15 "It's great to have the hair of the moment if you're an actor or a model, but can the average professional be taken seriously with hair like this?"
Ouidad 4:28 "Absolutely. I have a lot of professionals, I have a lot of CEO's and I have a lot of lawyers who actually are in court and they can't go in looking like they're mad people."
Jorge Ramon, Teen People 9:23 "I'm the fashion director at Teen People, so when people see my hair they immediately turn on to it. And in a funny way, it's almost become my signature."
