Asymmetrical, Funky Cut from Alfaparf

Sensuality is for the bold. When studying this cut by Alfaparf Milano, attention shifts from the striking color to the asymmetrcial effects of the bangs and edge. As the wind blows, the face makes an unexpected appearance from under the veil of her fringe, but when the breeze dies down, she once again retreats to her world of mystery. For some, appearance speaks louder than words, and this cut is for them!
