Created by award-winning stylist and Irish Businesswoman 2010, Pamela Morrissey from Sobe Brown says, ‘The looks today are all about ‘glam power’, which is a mix of sheer glamour and feminine confidence. It combines the glamour of the 60’s, the era where upstyles originated, with today’s modern woman.’
‘The hair is chic and modest yet it evokes an air of confidence and a touch of carelessness. This is the time to be a woman and to walk tall!’

Cork Designer of the Year Awards at the Triskel Art Centre
MUA Team Kate Noonan
At the Triskel Art Centre, statement hair took the catwalk by storm as the highly anticipated Cork Designer of the Year Awards kicked off in full swing. Styled by winners of the Alfaparf Fantastic Hairdressers Award 2011, the cutting edge hair team from Kaizen together with Origin Hair Design created high fashion yet wearable hair to compliment the diverse collection of designer fashion trends.
The Kaizen hair team headed up by Edel Lyons, together with Katie Lawlor and Katie Fitzgerald share some of the inspiration behind the hairstyles.
‘The look is sculpted, sleek and groomed. It’s about simplicity with clean lines and a strong centre parting. Finally, a section of hair is wrapped around the base of the ponytail to give a clean finish.’
