SHINGLELISH is a name fusion of Shingle English Rose The Flapper Shingle was popularized in the 1920s era with a signature bob hair cut and we fused it with the delicate English Rose beauty which features delicate curls that frame the face, giving us the look of what we now call the SHINGLISH
It was famous among classic English women to wear long curls framing their face The curls draped over the sides of the face and neck Their faces normally pale  an epitome of ladylike elegance in England Meanwhile, in the roaring 1920's, a signature short haircut called the 'shingle' was made popular by a Polish hairdresser, Monsieur Antoine Bearing a resemblance to shingles on sloped roofs, the shingle shortly turned into a hit among New Yorkers It is a signature bob hair cut with a very short back in a "V" shape This bold hairstyle represents subtle masculinity combined with grace

  • Africa  AFROQUE

The AFROQUE is derived from the fusion of Africa and the Baroque period The hairstyles in the South African region are influenced largely by headties which are large, coiffed and stiff The Afroque look's period of influence is the Baroque period with huge bouffant hairstyles These two are put together to come up with an Afroque look
Originally, African women wear headtie by tying the knots of a fabric on the crown of their head just like a queen wearing her crown - it is to them a symbol of beauty and elegance In West and Southern Africa, head tie functions as fashion item, flaunting the art of African women's beauty
History lists the Baroque period as one of the periods flooded with artistic style from 17th to 18th century During this era a new trend of hair was spreading, embracing a curly updo with great degrees of height This hairstyle is to be known as Fontange, originated from a name of a Baroque hatter, Fontange a la Sultane
Despite differences in both styles, the marriage between the two results in an amazing new look Instead of rigid curls, AFROQUE transforms a straight and smooth hairstyle into big ribbon petals with complexity of an African turban as it towers over the head similar to the bouffant hairdo during the Baroque period, offering a chic and elegant Haute Couture look

  • America  NAVIE

        The term NAVIE is derived from the name of the largest Native American tribe, Navajo and the 1970's signature style, Hippie  Accentuating the raw beauty of the Navajo Native American Indian Women, the look features an ombre with dark roots that gradually lightens towards the ends to match the groove of the Hippies of the 1970's Not to forget the symbolic headband, a small section of the hair is braided and turned into a charming headband surrounding the forehead, giving a depiction of a hippie Pocahontas
        The Navajo tribe usually leave their hair long, wavy and voluminous when not braided Some Navajo people give up their long hair for jobs, but some still highly value the culture Meanwhile, the 1970's was the time for the freespirited Hippie youngsters Accordingly, the hair trend of the day portrayed long hair parted down the middle The look comes with one signature style of welldefined curls with banding around the forehead

As the center of fashionforward Japanese youth, Harajuku has a certain reputation Starting in the 1960's, this subculture's unique fashion attracted the arrival of Western highend fashion brands in the area, endorsing it to be one of the world's fashion centers Kabuki, on the other hand, involves a unique mix of acting, singing, and dancing The unusual elements of Kabuki are often considered bizarre, and yet they have turned this art to be the symbol of classic Japanese culture
Combining the timeless beauty of straight black hair just as Kabuki and a shock of color and asymmetrical cut echoing the eccentricity of Harajuku style, HARABUKI is born
