Easily one of NYFW’s most buzzed-about shows, Collina Strada‘s FW23 show “Please Don’t Eat My Friends,” featured models in various animal prosthetics. We’re talking beaks, snouts, enormous ears… the works. It was punk — and the hair matched that mood.
“Our overall hair story for the show is a grungy cool look that is enhanced to show natural texture. The inspiration starts with the Collina Strada girl — the downtown edgy punk, fashion lover — combined with Hillary’s inspiration of farm life, referencing horses’ manes and roosters. Each look has an organic undertone that is colorful yet muted, and convivial” said Evanie Frausto, lead hairstylist for Bumble and bumble.
Get the Look: Cascading Dressage Lattice-Net Hood
To create each dressage style, Frausto used Strong Finish Hairspray ($34.00) to help mold, gather and set hair in each lattice-braid. Custom to each model, the lattice-nets follow the natural shape of each head and is finished with Bb.Bond-Building Repair Oil Serum ($43.00), adding smoothness and softness to hair.
Get the Look: Grunge Cool
For the lived-in grunge look, Frausto prepped hair with the lightweight Bb.Prep Primer ($28.00) and detangling Bb.Tonic Lotion ($28.00) to prepare hair, and then added Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil ($43.00).
For both styles, Frausto used the Bb.Bond-Building Repair Oil Serum ($43.00) to add hydration, softness and smoothness. In particular, on color-processed wigs sprinkled throughout the show, “the new Bond-Building Repair Oil Serum really helped to bring hair back to its naturally wavy texture,” said Frausto.
