#HOLYHAIR – Hairstyles that will never go out-of-style

With all the eccentric, bold and even weird hairstyles that are coming out this year as the fashion and style industry grows, there are  always certain hairstyles that any woman (and the man) can rely on that WILL NEVER become passé.

The BOB – Probably the most popular hairstyle to date (in our opinion) and it never gets stale. We could be wrong but people sure do love this one. There’s so many ways that you can play up the bob, it’s simply amazing such a hairstyle is so versatile.

The LOB – Yes this means a  longer bob (see what they did there) haha

You can’t go wrong with a lob and for many who worry that one day you may not feel like letting your hair down, the lob is just for you, as opposed to the bob which can sometimes be very short. All you need is a hair clip or two and you are rocking another hairstyle.

The PIXIE CUT – Want to feel sexy or just be daring for once? The pixie cut is just right. A pixie cut is indeed a cute hairstyle but be warned – If not done properly, it won’t look right. Also, it takes a lot of care and not for those who are lazy or just can’t find the time.

The BUN – Buns are a girl’s best friend. You can make a messy bun or you make a perfect bun. Either way, a bun can be fitting for any occasion, whether it be a dinner, or a night out with friends or a girl’s day out shopping.

… Men we haven’t forgotten you either. Three hairstyles that are absolutely sexy (to us, at least) are the undercut, the spiky hair and the Faux-Hawk.

The UNDERCUT – Many male (and female) celebs sport this one and we guess you can call it a trend. But to us it will never become primitive. The low sides are absolutely appealing to the eye and we must say – SUPER SEXY!

The SPIKY HAIR – Now, everything doesn’t have to be all neat and fancy and this is where the spiky hair comes in. Sometimes all it takes is some gel and a comb and you’re good to go. For others, it might mean a haircut but nevertheless, this is a look that can fit most, if not all, so give it a try.

AND The FAUX-HAWK – We say faux-hawk and not mohawk because the mohawk can get a little scary sometimes. With a faux-hawk, it looks a little bit more sophisticated and it fits just about every face shape out there.

You Better ‘WATCH’ Out – Our faves from the 2014 Watch Collections

They say time is of the essence and what better way to keep up than with a snazzy dazzle timepiece on your wrists! A great number of men and women everywhere (including us here at Abstract Square) will always consider the watch an IMPORTANT aspect in one’s wardrobe. Not only does it show off your unique style but it shows that you have respect for your time and the time of others.

In this post we will feature 6 watches, from the many collections released this year, that have caught our attention!*

W7100052_0_cartier_watches_01. Calibre De Cartier Diver Watch

The Calibre de Cartier Diver watch is an authentic diving instrument. A powerful accurate watch with water-resistance to 300 meters, rubber strap, maximum-precision unidirectional turning bezel coated with ADLC and time-control displays in Super-LumiNova®. Powered by a 1904 MC movement, it combines the strict technical requirements of ISO 6425 and the striking design of the Calibre de Cartier watch.

2.  MountBlanc Timewalker Extreme Chronograph DLC

According  to the  Watch Insider, Montblanc kicked off the second decade of this iconographic watch line with the presentation of the new TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC. The colour of the diamond-like carbon coating is described as “Black 4”, which stands for “very black”. 

Montblanc-TimeWalker-Extreme-Chronograph-DLC-620x990

The acronym DLC (= diamond-like carbon) means that the toughness of the stainless steel case’s surface has been increased to the utmost. Minuscule glass spherules are blasted under high pressure to give the steel a microscopic texture to which the DLC-coating can almost inseparably adhere, thus producing a fine matte finish on the surface. The same process is used on the other stainless steel components: i.e. the readily grasped crown, the chronograph’s buttons, the midnight-black pronged buckle, and the screwed back with its pane of sapphire crystal.

3. Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Unique Travel Time

This is the first watch to combine user-friendly access to the world’s time zones with flexible setting of the time in the destination zone to the nearest minute. This timepiece capitalises on the “Dual Wing” concept, thus avoiding any loss of precision. It displays the reference time together with the time in a second time zone, indicated digitally thanks to a jumping hour disc with the minutes indicated by a hand.

Duometre-jlc-606352JA globe at 6 o’clock shows the time zones of the planet with a subtle day/night indicator. Its sapphire crystal case-back reveals the exceptional decoration on the movement. Unique Qualities include the back of the Duomètre Unique Travel Time watch features engraved names of cities corresponding to 24 time zones and there’s a map of the world on a delicately grained dial.
