KATHMANDU, June 17: Retro-inspired trends are back again to reinvent contemporary fashion in 2019. Leading the way is Streax Professional, the premium product range for hair care, color and style, specially crafted for salon professionals and technicians, which launched Retro Remix, its new collection of vintage styles, re-imagined for present-day fashionistas. The collection was launched in Kathmandu at the 2019 edition of its mega hair show “Hair & Beyond”. Using products such as Argan Secrets hair color, CanvoLine straightening cream, and the Hold & Play styling range, Retro Remixmixes brunette, gold and copper blonde and brown shades help to create a range of sophisticated retro styles for fashion-conscious women.
Announcing the launch of its new collection, Rochelle Chhabra, Professional Division Head, Hygienic Research Institute said, “Streax Professional is proud to present this new vintage range, inspired by ultra-glamorous 70s hairstyles created for style icons like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn in the West, and Zeenat Aman and Hema Malini in the East. Our collection, which highlights the brown palette, has been specially designed for the fashion-conscious Indian woman. It combines old world charm with contemporary freshness, making Retro Remix is a perfect fusion of the old and the new.”
Actress Swastima Khadka, who was the showstopper, did her part in turning up the glamour quotient when she walked the ramp at the event. She made heads turn in her retro-chic hairdo accompanied by other models who looked their classic best. The event showcased an array of hairstyles including the romantic amber retro chignon, bouffant fudge sleek, the dark chocolate precision bob, undone beige messy ponytail, gypsy tangerine blonde heart-shaped braid; all created using the perfect blend of the collection’s range of products.
International celebrity stylist Shirin Merchant said, “I am delighted to participate in Streax Professional’s mega hair show for the second time. Besides the high profile launches that it showcases, “Hair & Beyond” provides beauty technicians with a unique opportunity to receive new insights and learning about hairstyling, helping them emerge as true experts of their craft.”
