For the debut of the Spring 2015 collections around the world, L’Oréal Professionnel was once again backstage creating trend-setting hairstyles seen on the runways of New York, London and Paris. Three different hairstyles stood out for the upcoming season, including a new, woven twist on classic braids, perfectly imperfect bed-head, and fresh, clean, natural beauty.

Braids are here to stay, proving their versatility both on and off the runway. This season, braids are all about adding a cool-girl twist that can be worn day or night.
At Erdem, the look was simple with hair pulled back into a single braid but kept loose for a soft romantic feel. Lead stylist Anthony Turner saturated the hair with a mix of Tecni.Art Densité and L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil to provide control and shine. He loosened up the braid by pulling out pieces with his fingers for that overall nonchalant softer finish.
Backstage at The Rachel Zoe Collection, L’Oréal Professionnel Artist Pepper Pastor celebrated the jet-set style of the 1960’s with a soft ponytail intertwined with a braid. Pastor added grip and texture to the hair with Tecni.Art True Grip to help keep braids tight and secure but without a stiff feel.
Sportswear has never been so chic. This nonchalant, “just-left-the-gym” texture has been spotted on the runway, on the street and is here to stay for the coming season.
At Giambattista Valli lead stylist Orlando Pita created a simple ponytail with bed-head texture for every woman. Pita’s key ingredient was Tecni.Art Beach Waves applied only on the lengths of damp hair followed by a blow-dry while simultaneously scrunching hair with hands moving from the ends upwards. Finish with Tecni.Art Infinium 3.
The Anthony Vaccarello look for spring is the perfect look for every girl on-the-go! For that bed-head texture, Turner rough-dried hair with Tecni.Art Perfect Texture while pushing the ends towards the roots then kept the nozzle of the blow-dryer close to the roots.
For Topshop Unique, Turner created a low side-part with toughened-up, unkempt texture that can be paired with any weekend style. For the look, Turner used Tecni.Art Fresh Dust to keep the hair matte and disheveled, making sure to use fingers to mess up the look.
Fresh and modern hair never goes out of style, as seen season after season. This coming spring’s clean and simple look calls for center and side-swept parts, perfectly smooth strands and weightless, airy movement.
Inspired by the 1960’s, Turner created a precise center part and sleek straight strands for the Peter Pillotto woman. For a light and fresh feel with movement, Turner’s key ingredient was misting Tecni.Art Fresh Dust at the lengths after hair was blow-dried straight.
At Roksanda Ilincic, lead stylist Luke Hersheson kept the style modern and minimal with freshly blow-dried straight strands partnered with a deep side-swept part. To keep the style clean and sleek without the stiff hold, Hersheson’s product of choice was Tecni.Art Lumi Contrôle.
