Many things inspire music, this time for L’Oreal
Profession nel music has inspired the key cuts, and colour for Autumn/Winter 09. The hair colour, and styling brand has designed a complete collection of hair looks based on Rock and Folk music. Themed Rock’N’Folk, the collection works around music of two genre — the bold, loud vibrations of rock music, and the feet tapping, shimmering beats of folk songs.
L’Oreal Professionnel Ambassador, Laurent Decreton says, “The collection reaches back to move forward, showing off the history of hair in and through music, then updating and reinterpreting the looks for today’s fashions and habits. Music being a major mover in today’s society and a dictator of both fashion and beauty trends, the Indian Interpretation of “Rock n Folk” created by the Indian hair artists reflected what haircare products can do, with each creation representing a different trait in colouring and styling.”
These two forms of music have given rise to two distinct styles of hair. The rock hair meant big updos, bright shimmering hues, contrasting shades, and warm tones — the styles a challenge to come out of your safe net of basic hair colours and try something extraordinary. In case of folk inspired styles the look is much softer and subdued with an understated sophistication — definitely easier to sport as the palette runs from cool colours, and intense brown played up with depth.
According to Decreton, “Edgy, sleek and modern hair with exaggerated cuts and layering techniques form the rock collection. The rock universe of Majirel brings out intense, accentuated colours like warm, golden touches and Iridescent, shinning hues. The folk universe spells soft, subdued and sophisticated looks and plays with a combination of cooler colours, intense browns and deep reflects.”
In fact to give an Indian interpretation to the global looks, L’Oreal Professional invited five leading stylists also L’Oreal Profession nel Artistic Ambassadors — to create the looks. They created the looks and reinterpreted them for the Indian sensibilities, keeping in mind our hair colouring and textures. The looks are both homage to the amazing creativity and vision of rock and folk, and a modern interpretation of what looks current.
