Rainbow Brite, Beauty Icon


The Proenza Schouler boys really started something when they sent models with pastel hair streaks down their Spring runway. First we saw a celeb imitation (Ashley Olsen), and now the popular punk pastime has made an editorial cameo as well. In this month’s issue of Dazed & Confused, hairstylist Raphaël Salley reimagines the catwalk’s tie-dye trend in beauty terms, elaborating on Didier Malige’s coiffing job backstage at Proenza. Better buy some Manic Panic quick before Ricky’s sells out. Seriously, do you think the fad will catch on, or is it something that’s best left to head shop patrons?

Surf’s Up at Proenza


Perhaps in an attempt to get in on Spring’s emerging hair color craze, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez asked Frédéric Fekkai hairstylist Didier Malige and his backstage team to conjure up a slew of California surfer girls for the Proenza Schouler presentation last night—including two would-be wave-catchers with teal and lavender locks for an added edge. We totally get the rough seaside texture created with Fekkai Beachcomber Leave-In Conditioner and spritzes of Fekkai Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray (if you can’t get to the beach, get yourself some beach waves). But the oddly placed color creations achieved with non-peroxide-based, temporary pigments were a touch harder to get behind. Thoughts on the dye jobs and any nascent plans for summer streaks?
