Inspired by the new Eastern European woman (from countries like The Republic of Georgia), hair stylist Rolando Beauchamp for Bumble and bumble, used buns, braids, and headscarves in bold colors to bring designer Alexandre Herchovitch’s vision to life. “Alexandre was deeply influenced by director Sergev Parajanov and his film ‘The Color of Pomegranates’. Parajanov was highly controversial and was even jailed for a time in the ‘70’s,” noted Beauchamp.
Using Bumble and bumble, Beauchamp prepared locks with ‘White Hair Powder’. He first sectioned hair from ear to ear and used the back section to create a bun. On the side sections he braided random, small sections of hair and secured them with a small elastic being sure to slightly pull on the side of the braids to create a more textured look. Some braids were left to hang and others were tucked into the bun. Non-braided sections were flat ironed. The whole look was secured with ‘Does It All’ for hold, and then adorned with a colorful scarf.
