Over the past 25 years, editorial and fashion hairstyling icon and Bumble and bumble Global Artistic Director Laurent Philippon has crafted a storied career. He has lent his talents to top fashion publications, to haute couture houses like Chanel and Balmain, and to Hollywood A-listers and supermodels du jour. And, Philippon, who has worked under hair legends Alexandre de Paris, Julian D’Ys and Orlando Pita, has become a legend in his own right. Here’s what he packs in his three Rimowa suitcases—one for tools, one for hair extensions and one for wigs, naturally.
I love that I can now have a conversation while blow-drying my client’s hair.
Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Dry Oil Finishing Spray
My favorite to give shine and instant sexy texture.
Amika Flat Iron
Heats up quickly and has a clever design that makes it excellent to manipulate.
Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray
I use it for all styles, from blow-drying to working with hot tools.
Y.S. Park Paddle Brush
They truly are the Rolls Royce of brushes.
BaByliss Nano Titanium Curling Iron
I use BaByliss curling irons for traditional Marcel waving, and the 3-barrel iron for large crimped effects.
This comb has the right flexibility to backcomb hair. The teeth are large at the roots and thinner at the ends, so it’s perfect to draw parts and comb precisely for haircuts.
GHD Curve Classic Iron
This curler is my favorite for soft waves. I love that the whole barrel heats up. It’s perfect for long hair.
Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder Tres Invisible Dry Shampoo
These are the best products to give volume, add grip for updos and dry clean the hair. I apply it all over, massage it in and spread it through the hair with a bristle brush.
