How-To: 3 Urban Styles

Inspiration: Individuality

Inspired by the unique individuality that makes us who we are, from the clothing to beauty look and casting of models, Rag & Bone’s AW 16 collection embodies real style and evokes the idea of allowing people to come as they are – personal, unique, distinctive and special. Wella Professionals Lead Stylist Paul Hanlon: “I was influenced by the individuality and personality of the models – the casting this season was very diverse which lead me to focus on not defining one look, but styling each model by their personality, style and hair texture.” Each model has an individual look and texture but what ties everything together is the overarching hair aesthetic inspired by cool, street and urban style – symbiotic with Wella Professionals EIMI collection which speaks to confident and expressive individuals who want to stand out from the crowd.
