A gentle sophisticated new vintage emerges with freshness and lightness being the
essential philosophy behind Autumn/Winter ‘09 trends.
Levitas by Mieka Hairdressing’s Tracey Hughes is an enchanted fantasy where images defy
gravity and contradict gloomy realities with a refreshing lightness.

The collection’s striking shapes are inspired by classic minimalism, architecture and
romance whilst a hybrid of nature, craft and science collide as natural transparent
filaments fuse with technological accents to produce emerging colour sensations.
“Lightness” floats through this season's two predominant hair colour trends of blonde and mahogany.
Unusual associations of cold and warm tones contrast, causing tension to build a newcolour sound of denuded colours.
Blondes are light and bright with soft beautiful accents of light rosewood caramels and
toffee browns or hidden subtle effects of soft pastel apricots and pinks.
Rich glossy chocolate browns featuring mahogany and violet tones produce lusciousdarker colours.
Reds come to life with intense mahogany reds and contrasting opposing colours such as navy blue.
Striking shapes reign on the styling front. Shorter hair combines severe, masculine outlines
with extremely feminine longer lengths whilst longer lengths float with curl and volume inspiring glamour and raw sex appeal.
Strong, clean lines display outstanding perfection with a poetic fluidity within themovement.
