How-To: Individual Texture

Lacoste Fall/Winter 2016, hair by Bb.Global Artistic Director Laurent Philippon

DESIGNER DIRECTION/HAIR INSPIRATION: “The hair at this show is very cool and not too ‘hairdresser.’ We set a mood for the hair a few seasons ago and we’re sticking to it because it works. The variety comes from the casting and I think it’s really something that’s in the air at the moment – we don’t want over-worked hair. It’s about natural texture and individuality. I love that philosophy.

We have one particular curly model here today who never wears her hair curly, she straightens her hair and it’s so sad because she has the most beautiful curl. All we did was use the Bb.Curl products and it looks like we’ve spent ages doing them with a curling iron. It’s so much cooler than if we had.” – Laurent Philippon

STYLING METHODS: For straighter hair with less texture, start with Prep and then apply Don’t Blow It and let air dry. For curly hair, start with Bb.Curl Pre-Style/Re-Style Primer and then layer addition Bb.Curl products depending on texture – tighter curls were finished with the Bb.Curl Anti-Humidity Gel-Oil.
