A true artist, Laurent Philippon began his career as a young boy in France. Sweeping and shampooing at his father’s barber shop, he had found his calling. While still only a teenager, he moved to Paris and studied under some of the most influential #manemasters Julien d’Ys, Orlando Pita, and Sam McKnight. Now, he is the creative consultant for Bumble and Bumble, helping to develop some of their most coveted products, as well as an acclaimed author; recently publishing the book: Hair: Fashion and Fantasy, receiving praised reviews. His work has graced the pages of Vogue, V Magazine, Another Magazine, Dansk, Dazed & Confused, Harper’s Bazaar, i-D, Muse, and Numéro as well as countless runways, celebrities, and haute couture. This year, he led the hair for Martin Grant, Maxime Simoens, Ralph Rucci, Cedric Charlier, and Lacoste’s SS15 runway shows.
