Elegance with an edge makes a dramatic return this autumn in a new body of work from Paul Mitchell Editorial Director Lucie Doughty.
Lucie Doughty puts a contemporary twist on the classic film noir aesthetic in her latest release, seen exclusively on these pages. Dubbed Fall in Noir, the collection has a rich, luxurious feel with layers of dimension. “The goal for Darren Tieste—my go-to photographer for the project—and me was to meld the streets of New York with the romanticism of Paris runways to create a modern, noir-style everyday kind of woman,” Doughty says. Keeping that top of mind, Doughty incorporated retro rolls, free-form twists, extremely textured hair, center and extreme side parts, as well as extra-large chignons to create impactful hair. “All these elements add a dose of drama and sultriness to classic noir styles,” Doughty says.
