Christian Cowan’s high-energy designs have garnered star clientele, ranging from Cardi B to Lady Gaga. At the SS 2019 show, Bumble and bumble collaborated with this rising fashion star not only on hair, but also on an exclusive, co-branded fanny pack – which models rocked atop power suits and party dresses. “I was hypnotized by the graphic silhouettes in Christian’s collection,” says Bb.Global Fashion Director Laurent Philippon, who created two equally graphic hair looks: 1990s Versace-esque volume, and a strong, hand-sculpted pony.
For his take on 1990s volume, Laurent used the new Bb.Thickening Go Big Treatment and blow-dried hair to lift roots, sprayed Does It All for brushable hold, and finished with Dryspun Texture Spray for a lived-in quality. To create the angular ponytails, Laurent started with Bb.Thickening Go Big Treatment, and then created a deep side part and wet down hair with Spray de Mode. After backcombing the root, he hand-sculpted a square shape, and locked in the look with Strong Finish hairspray.
