“The Ultra-Modern, Fearless Moschino Girl”-------
She was really all the inspiration Bumble and Bumble hairstylist Laurent Philippon needed to conceive the punk mohawk- by-way-of-fifties-pompadour-twist he fashioned for the Moschino
runway presentation yesterday. “The sides were up like a structured fifties updo, which lent a sharpness to the silhouette of the face, while the top emulated a rock ‘n’ roll coif—lots of volume with cotton-candy texture—all placed on the forehead in a wave,” Philippon explained. He achieved the sculptural shape through back-combing, Bb Does It All Styling Spray, and plain old ingenuity. Oh, and that is a touch of crimping you see on the ends, treated with a cloud of Bb Hair Powder to get a matte finish. Because, hey, why not throw another decade reference in for good measure? What are the fifties and eighties without the early nineties, anyway?
