Mad Maxxin’

The long awaited Mad Max movie is coming out! It is called Mad Max: Fury Road and takes Mad Max on a journey  through the post-apocalyptic world with a band of women trying to escape a savage warlord. It stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Riley Keough and Zoe Kravitz. Performance artist and feminist, Eve Ensler, was brought on as consultant to make sure the George Miller based flick sincerely represented strong women in a major way.

At Emerson Salon, we are fans of post-apocalyptic looks and think there are some fun hair inspirations to try from the movie. Here we talk about the fierce females’ hair look that rock out this film with unique and gritty style.

Here is Zoe Kravitz’s bold haircut (see left.) It is not a typical “pixie cut” as the texture and almost non existent bangs are disconnected to create a shattered effect. ¬†The shape is still tapered and rounded to the head shape and is most likely achieved with slide cutting or razoring work. Her high cheekbones and long neck really help create a dramatically angular look and helps to add to her character work in the film.

If you have longer hair you can french braid your hair on either side of the hair when half damp with beach texturizer and allow to air dry or blow dry to create undulating waves with ease. Then release and rough up with your fingers once the braids are removed.

To achieve this hair color can be a simple one step process at a professional colorist if you have light hair or medium naturally occurring blond. If you have dark hair it might be necessary to lift or lighten the hair in order for the orange based color to show up vibrantly on your hair. Reds fade pretty quickly so make sure to review with your stylist how to best and maintain this high octane shade. We recommend using Color Proof or MoroccanOil brand Shampoos and Conditioners. TIP: Less shampooing means less fadage so make sure to stock up on dry shampoo!

We are so excited for this movie! Check out the trailer and info below!
