Sally Lapointe’s Spring collection was inspired by the Renwick Ruins, the former smallpox hospital on NYC’s Roosevelt Island. So it was fitting that to complement the clothing’s vintage inspiration, Stylist Laurent Philippon for Bumble and Bumble created an unconventional look, inspired by haunted 1920’s ballerinas.
To get the look hair was sprayed with Bumble and Bumble Prep. Hair was then sculpted into a bun, using Bb Gel. When dry, a black wig cap was pulled over the front of the hair.
Spray de Mode was used on loose hair to provide additional hold. The ends were then tucked into the front of the wig cap.
To finish the look, white Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder was sprayed onto the front of the cap.
The finished look:
The hairstyle was quite fitting for LaPointe’s sculptural, architecture inspired meets outer space collection.
Though the lighting on the runway was a little difficult (I REALLY hate smoke machines, and think they should be banned from all runways!), I thought the collection looked great, and proved to be one of the most ambitious and avant-garde collections of the season.
