Beauty was graphic and strong backstage at Chado Ralph Rucci.
The dramatic, aerodynamic updo, created by Laurent Philippon, for Bumble and bumble, was meant to resemble “architecture” and “sculpture.” To create the style, Philippon began by blowing out hair with a “ponytail blow dry.” He then sectioned hair into two parts, divided horizontally, back-combed and sprayed heavily with Bumble and bumble Does It All. The bottom was then secured with a bungee and the ponytail was braided about two inches. Pins then secured the braids into a horizontal crown shape, which became the base, or “bridge” of the look. Next, the top section of hair was braided and tucked under itself. To keep things in place and to get an “entirely wet” effect, Philippon used generous amounts of Bumble’s Spray de Mode.
