The Multitasking Mousse That’s Model-Tested And Backstage Approved
We were told long ago, by more than one well-respected hairstylist, that ours is not a face that is suited to bangs. Which, to be perfectly honest, is fine by us. That’s the thing with fringe: Either you look good with it, or you don’t. But at Pucci this weekend, all 30-plus girls looked good with it, thanks to a few insider tricks courtesy of Luigi Murenu. Not only did Murenu bevel each hairpiece he clipped onto models’ foreheads to individually blend them, but he tinted and texturized their hair, thus creating a natural color gradation that combined everything together even more. “It’s the same thing I used on Bette [Franke] in the Miu Miu campaign,” he explained of the magic of Roux Fanci-Full Color Styling Mousse, a Sally Beauty staple that you simply rake through strands for a boost of color and a lived-in look. We’ve been fascinated by the idea ever since. It works best on lighter locks—blondes, flaxen brunettes, etc., and probably won’t show up on the raven-haired among us, Murenu elaborated—but it comes in twelve shades and is entirely temporary. “We washed it out right after,” he revealed of the auburn/burnt-copper color he gave Franke on set, and then just as quickly removed. It’s officially on our “to try” list for when we return to the States after the shows.
