K—-*"=- — 3^^™ Hemlines go back up in the spring and this year, they are higher than usual. Are you ready for the coming fashion wave of mini-skirts and shorts? Femininity, Softness In For Hair The look in women's hair fashions this spring is natural and decidedly female, according to hairstylists. "Hair will have a soft natural look; it won't be quite as full as in previous seasons," says Gordon Nelson, director of style training for Regis Hairstylist salons. "We will also see a variety of exciting new styles. There won't be just one specific look that is this year's hot trend," he adds. "The best new looks are close and shapely. Tops will be left long for lots of permed-in texture and movement. New perm wrap methods are essential to create unusual finishes with texturized volume,'' says Nelson. Xenon, international creative director for the Helene Curtis professional division, says, "Women are finally learning that looking professional doesn't mean the same as looking masculine. "The more subdued feminine fashion looks shown for spring allow hair to make an important, dramatic statement of its own," says Xenon, in introducing a collection of perm styles for this spring. "Hairstyles today are highly sculpted, yet must remain soft and touchable. The only way to achieve this sculpted look without weighing hair down with sticky, brittle sprays and gels is through perming." As for length, he says, "anything goes." "Hair length is not really an issue this spring. The key to this season's most up-to-date looks is volume and softness. Curls are softer and looser; waves have more definition; all hairstyles move and shine. "Most of my styles involve lifting the hair up and away from Loose, easy care locks the face, emphasizing the individual woman's facial features. After all," he says, "what could be sexier or more feminine than a woman's face?" Minis Have Changed, Designer Claims ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) - The miniskirt may be back, but it's more formal and refined than the thigh-high hemlines of the 1960s, says Alison Lurie, Pulitzer Prize novelist and fashion commentator. The more sophisticated minis, she says, may be an expression of women's confidence at work and in the economy. "When things are good economically, skirts tend to go up. If we're happy and carefree, we begin to act and dress like children. The miniskirt is part of this general phenomenon," she says. "When we were young, we wore very short skirts; children still do. But there's an age beyond which you have to be in absolutely wonderful shape to wear a miniskirt, maybe 40." Lurie won the fiction Pulitzer Prize in 1985 for the novel •'Foreign Affairs" and also wrote "The War Between the Tales." She is an English professor at Cornell University here in narrative writing, folklore and children's literature. A native of Chicago, she was raised in White Plains, N.Y., and is the mother of three grown sons. She is also the author of "The Language of Clothes," written in 1981, in which she said that the lacy, baby-doll style of the 1960s made "grown women look like toddlers with a glandular affliction, or like severely retarded nubile teen-agers." The miniskirts, she said, seemed "ridiculous rather than seductive." Women Still Say They Find Minis Tacky, Useless The mini is not for the many, according to a survey published in a newsletter for marketers. The especially short, thigh-high mini-skirt is appropriate for only the "young, the skinny and the bold when they're at play," according to the Langer Report. Its finding were based on a study of women 15 to 64 years of age, conducted in Los Angeles, New York, Dallas and Kansas City between November and December of 1987. "It is for small minority of women, a minority of the time," said Judith Langer, publisher and co-editor of the report, which says the "thigh-high, micro-mini is seen by women as tacky — worn to attract male attention, but not respect." Odds & Ends Associated Press St. Petersburg, capital of the Russian Empire from 1712 to 1917, was renamed Petrograd in 1914 and Leningrad in 1924, says National Geographic. LOS ANGELES (AP) - Sun- worshiping women from California to Cape Cod this summer will wear a blend of stripes, animal patterns and floral designs that celebrate an active lifestyle and physical zest, swimwear industry experts say. Women want suits that "portray an image of physical fitness, whimsical sensuality, fashion awareness and success," said Jill Lee Williams, who designs for Los Angeles- based Jag swimwear. "Our body styling, color and print attitudes are very fashion forward, on top and unafraid," Ms. Williams added. In other words, the suits are being designed for young women who value success and who cultivate the Body Beautiful. Other lines being offered this year are similarly bold and revealing, including those made by Catalina, DeWeese and Gottex of Israel, all of which have West Coast manufacturing facilities. In coming weeks, cash registers will be ringing from purchases of yardage with texture that feature ribs, puff prints, Lycra, silk, cotton and rubber. All are intended to make a day at the beach a visual as well as a physical exercise. The Anne Cole Collection offers a neoprene wet suit that is a Sunshine Looks These may be some of the outfits we'll be seeing at the swimming quarry in France Park and the city pools this summer. provocative bikini with a hint of scuba diving adventure to it. The cost: $75. Jantzen also features a zippered vest suit dubbed the "Sea Hunt," which diver Mike Nelson would doubtless appreciate. "In designing Jag swimwear, the creative ideas come from my own active lifetyle, sporting events, international attitudes, trends and travel," Ms. Williams said. Still, even those who achieve less than the image of perfection portrayed by the swimsuit models will likely be able to find a suit that works for them. Such outfits are called "solution suits." Prints can camouflage figure faults more than solids. NEW CREATIONS 753-8012 STYLING SALON 1228E.BDWY.
