Eugene Souliemann, Wella’s Global Creative Director, is having fun with hair in Paris. Earlier this week at Rochas, he created Adams Family-esq messy bouffants and yesterday he styled the models at Issey Miyake in "elegant mohicans" with
double French rolls and textured tails. The thought behind this style is just as detailed as the hair itself. The look is strong, but with subtleties to it, like the combination of textures—matte at the back ("to give it a sense of movement in a natural way") and shine at the front and sides. "We didn’t want something too ornate, that would seem old fashioned," Souliemann said backstage. "There’s a lot of light in Issey’s collection so I wanted an element of shine to the hair to play off the light." It’s important to note, this is not the dosed and drenched
wet look of recent hair trend times – think satiny, sophisticated shine.
