Fall Trend How To: Bardot Bump

Fall always makes people want to primp a little more to look good for school or the office – learn how to create a whimsical Bardot Bump!

It’s still a little warm out, but we’re all dreaming of boots, cashmere, tweed and leather. Sam Villa ArTeam Member, Ellen Devine @ellendevinehair, shares a look with the perfect balance of carefree natural texture combined with the polish of a Bardot-inspired bump to beat the heat while looking cool.

  1. Prep hair with Redken Full Frame 07 for control and body, and use a Sam Villa Light Professional Ionic Hair Dryer with diffuser to dry hair on high heat and low speed. For extra volume, twist the diffuser.
  1. Once dry, brush through lightly with hands to loosen the natural waves. For extra volume, hit the root area with the Sam Villa Signature Series Textur Professional Texturizing Iron in the crown area, making sure to crimp underneath the part line. 
  1. Backcomb the crown area using a Sam Villa Artist Series Polishing Paddle Brush, using the first few rows of the brush to slightly smooth hair back, and making sure to leave a bit of natural texture. 
  1. Drop out front pieces, gather hair above the parietal and secure in the back area by twisting hair and inserting a bobby pin upwards with the wavy side against the scalp. Use another bobby pin to cross over the previous one in an “X” pattern. Secure any other areas with hairpins to lightly hold hair in place without making it too tight.
  1. Spray with Redken Triple Dry 15 for hold and a natural, textured, airy finish.

Zymon Collection by Shy + Flo

With the Zymon Collection, SHY + FLO embarks on a work fully dedicated to the male universe. The looks reunite the most important and influential haircuts of previous decades, forming a new whole.

Zymon Collection

Thus, in the Zymon Collection by Shy + Flo we find details and elements from the 70s, 80s, and 90s that coexist and flow with each other. For the hairdressers, it was essential to faithfully reproduce the character of the models and capture a pure and real moment.

Each look shows a high-definition hairdressing concept and the strength and stylistic mastery of the team. The geometric contours, the twists with the textures, and the contrasts reflect the authentic soul of a man who is true to himself when he breaks with the established. All this is perceptible in the haircuts, created with a precise and methodical style that gives the collection a subtle and light sophistication that does not overwhelm.

Project X Spends Day with Hare & Bone

It was a day of all round education when the Fellowship’s Project X team spent the day with Hare & Bone artistic team members Jamie Benny, Amelia Evans and Jose Domene.

Project X

The team, who are all former members of the Fellowship F.A.M.E. Team, shared their Philosophy Tech-Trilogy of all round approach to hair including cutting, colouring and editorial styling. The team, along with Project X team leader and Hare & Bone owner Sam Burnett, shared simple styling techniques as well as cutting and colouring techniques to take back to the salon and use on shoots and shows.

Member Cameron Willetts said: “This was the best day of education we have had so far. I learnt so much and pushed myself out of my comfort zone, it was so inspiring.” 

Justine Weir added: We learned so much, from the importance of prepping and setting hair to creating the best looks for editorial work, as well as new colour placement applications. This has been one of my favourite session of the year.”

Lauren Grace commented: “The Hare & Bone artistic team took us through four editorial looks and two colours. They broke the techniques down in a way that was so easy to understand and could easily be implemented into our own work. As well as this they showed us ways to easily spice up our work to make a look completely different with just a few tweaks. Then it was our turn to put into practice what we had learnt. The best part about the day was that the skills were so transferable, I know I will use these skills in the salon, when doing bridal work and at fashion week.”
