Feminity is back. Sharp spikes, brassy colors
and tight perms are out.
Four Lincoln stylists agreed that although no
one haircut is dominant, the trend is toward soft,
natural cuts for women.
Deb Crawford, owner of the Phoenix, said a
shaggy look reflecting the 1960s styles is coming
back for women with long hair. Women with
short hair can expect a geometric trend to be
popular, she said.
Don Lindstrom, style coordinator at El Toro,
said an undefined shaggy look is in. He said the
1960s styles are coming back but with more flair.
Tecturization within cuts is coming in, said
David Hanselmann, manager of JS Hairagans.
Long hair is very much in fashion and short hair
is not as short as in past seasons, Hanselmann
Reds are the biggest colors for spring, said
Bob Murray, owner of the Flairs.
Crawford said "stain glass" coloring gives a
glossy shine to create either aggressive or soft
highlights. .
Perms this spring will give a soft, natural look
rather than a tight, curly look, Murray said. A
looser curl to give movement to the hair is
coming in this season, he said.
Longer hair for men is becoming more accept
able, Crawford said.
For men who want the corporate look, short
hair should be their choice, although length with
control is coming back, Hanselmann said.
Murray said perming sections of men's hair is
hot for spring. The surfer cut is very much in
style, he said.
Accessories also are becoming more feminine
for spring. Bows will be big this season, Crawford
said, as well as flowing scarves tied at the nape
of the neck.
All four stylists agreed that banana clips will
be back for spring.

No frills in fashion fence-jumping
By Libby York

Tradition suggests that "the grass is always
greener on the other side of the fence."
Recent trends in the fashion industry have
made this statement true even in clothing.
Michele Wallace, a senior fashion merchandis
ing major, said that because men have histori
cally held higher positions in the business
sector, women, to be taken seriously, don't want
to look frilly.
"I know a lot of women who buy men's
clothes," Wallace said. "Men's clothes are made
better. Women have to pay for alterations. Men
get better alterations for free."
But, Wallace said, this fashion androgyny is
just a fad that's on its way out. "Lace and little
buttons are coming back in," she said. "Women
want to look more feminine, again. Fashion is an
Ty Gerny, an employee at the Brass Buckle,
"I think it's here to stay," he said. "We've seen
a definite increase in women buying men's shirts
and jeans. They dress them up with belts and
accessories; it's a totally different look." Gerny
said women don't want to look prim and proper
anymore. t
"I think women still look very feminine in
men's clothing," he said.
Kris Welty, assistant manager of the Chess
King men's store at Gateway Shopping Center,
had her own ideas.
Over the winter, a lot of women bought men's
sweaters, she said. Women tend to wear them
much bigger than men do, Welty said.
Recent articles in magazines like GQ, have
shown men wearing long skirts. The possibilities
of it catching on, however, seem slim.
"I don't think it'll go over in the Midwest,"
Gerny said. "People look at things differently out
here; they'd take it the wrong way."
