The Carlos Campos show marked the introduction of HOMME, L'Oreal Professionnel's new innovative men's collection of styling, color and care products. Also making a debut at both shows was the new Texture Expert Reverie/Realite collection, alongside favorites from the Texture Expert collection.
Zac Posen, February 19
World-renowned hair stylist Odile Gilbert created the hair design for the Zac Posen 2009 Fall/Winter Collection, which perfectly complemented the romantic and mystical energy of the collection, which included a performance by The Five Browns, a group of piano virtuoso siblings. Front row celebrities included Claire Danes, Rachel Bilson, Nicole Ritchie and Alicia Keys.
"The look is a French-inspired Josephine Bonaparte meets punk, with a lot of volume and texture. It has a messy, yet put together feel, as if it has been worn for several hours," notes Gilbert.
The hair was first prepped with L'Oreal Professionnel Texture Expert Expansion and curled then teased. Sections of hair were pinned and twisted to form the chignon all the while being generously sprayed with L'Oreal Professionnel Texture Expert Infinium #2, while allowing for continued styling. The headband was added once the chignon was set, then the front section of the hair teased and tucked into place. To finish the look, Gilbert and team sprayed L'Oreal Professionnel Texture Expert Infinium #4, for a strong hold and a hint of shine.
