Sleek Low Looped Braid at Kenzo by Anthony Turner

“This year at Kenzo, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim really want to pay homage to Kenzo himself,” explains key hairstylist Anthony Turner for Bumble and bumble backstage at the show. “

“When I think of the hayday of Kenzo, I think of the 1980’s. That whole time period that was very interesting, very exciting, and it was all about nighttime, the parties.”

“What we did is use loads and loads of gel, so the hair feels very reflective, almost like vinyl. Humberto and Carol really loved the ideal of these girls walking on the streets outside and the streets reflecting on their hair; that kind of romantic vision. We used the Bumble and bumble bb gel on small sections very close to the head, then created a low side part. The side part created an almost masculine, androgynous style; tough with an attitude.”
