Boy meets girl. Gender bending. Sexual ambiguity. All were inspiration for the Cosmetologists Chicago 2012-13 Photo Trend Team as they created the Androge collection for 2013.

“Nothing shows off an androgynous look better than black and white photography,” says Karen Gordon, co-director of the team, treasurer of Cosmetologists Chicago and co-owner of Chicago’s J. Gordon Designs salon. “The starkness of black and white emphasizes the lines of the hair cut as well as the strength of the make-up and gender-bending fashion.”

These androgynous looks are a marriage of the latest fashion with the most current trends in cutting, hair coloring and styling.
