INSPIRATION: One show, four styles. At Prabal Gurung, models rocked one of four signature hairstyles – depending on their texture. “We’re embracing natural hair textures and enhancing others, but ever so slightly,” said Laurent Philippon, lead stylist and Bumble and bumble Global Fashion Director.

HOW TO STYLE: Modern Chignon: apply Thickening Spray and blow-dry. Create a low pony, saturating it with Curl Anti-Humidity Gel Oil. Knot into a chignon. Low Pony: Blow-dry, flatiron, and create a low pony. Set with Does It All. Cornrows: Apply Straight Blow Dry to damp hair, then blow-dry. Cornrow with Sumogel. Natural Texture: Dampen hair with Prep Primer. Apply Don't Blow It (Fine) and air-dry.

INSPIRATION: Perfect imperfection. “Our fishtail braids aren’t perfect,” said lead stylist Bob Recine, for Bumble and bumble. “We’re not torturing hair into shape, or fighting flyaways – we like mistakes. Today’s looks are close to the nape, without much product because we love the realism of the details.”

HOW TO STYLE: Part hair in center, apply Curl Conditioning Mousse, and create a low pony. Braid hair into a fishtail (or don’t). Finish with Does it All or Strong Finish.

INSPIRATION: Rock and roll, remixed. “This girl’s partying, but she’s precise,” said Laurent Philippon, lead stylist and Bumble and bumble Global Fashion Director. “We were inspired by the collection’s wildness. So, we went for an inverted French twist, and roughed it up – making it a little mullet-esque.”

HOW TO STYLE: Apply Thickening Spray. Gather hair and twist it to the left, pinning roll into place. Add Sumogel for texture, and Sumo Liquid Wax + Finishing Spray for piecey-ness. Set with Strong Finish.

INSPIRATION: Grand slam. “It’s Japanese-sport chic,” said Laurent Philippon, lead stylist and Bumble and bumble Global Fashion Director. “Tennis champion Naomi Osaka co-designed this collection and inspired the hair. We wanted sweaty, sporty energy, but fashion – as if she walked off a match and onto the runway.”

HOW TO STYLE: Straight hair? Dampen with Prep Primer, apply Surf Spray or Surf Infusion, and air-dry. Textured hair? Apply Curl Anti-Humidity Gel Oil and diffuse. Create a loose pony and slip on the headband. Finish with Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Soft Texture Finishing Spray.

INSPIRATION: Sixites, but modern. “The inspiration was late-‘60s French icons like Jane Birkin and Anna Karina,” said Laurent Philippon, lead stylist and Bumble and bumble Global Fashion Director. “We translated a ‘60s bouffant for today’s girl, and showed afros and low fringes.”

HOW TO STYLE: For straight hair, apply Does It All, then create texture with a hot iron. Boost roots with Prêt-à-powder, and finsh with Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Soft Texture Finishing Spray. On textured hair and cornrows, apply Curl Anti-Humidity Gel Oil.

INSPIRATION: Come as you are. “Today’s look is ‘90s-inspired,” said lead stylist Jimmy Paul, for Bumble and bumble. “It’s sleek and straight, or shapely afros and intricate braids. This style translates to many hair types.”

HOW TO STYLE: Apply Prep Primer and All Style Blow Dry, then blow-dry and flatiron. Add Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil and create a low pony. Set with Strong Finish. On textured hair, apply Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil.
