Disco never died. Keep it alive by embracing the natural movement and soft, disheveled texture of Studio 54.

Can class and edge coexist? Label.m proves it can. To achieve this coiffed yet disheveled look, first create texture in the back with Thickening Tonic.

Next, massage Resurrection Style Dust into the roots to add height and apply Texturising Volume Spray to midlengths and ends. Take the style to the next level by using the Deconstructor to create separated, matte texture.
Juxtaposing bouncy, polished waves with a blunt, graphic fringe is a must for self-expression.

For the ultimate finish, spray Shine Mist on the Grooming Brush and gently brush through waves. Watch the how-to

We all love a little graphic design, especially in hair! To style this bold crop with an even shorter textured fringe, start with Smoothing Cream to retain moisture. Spray Sea Salt Spray on wet hair for disheveled texture and dry using the Grooming Brush, keeping it flat through the top and sides.

For your coolest of cool clients, there’s the Libertine Hipster—a layered look with plenty of volume and an exaggerated head shape. To get the look, use Volume Foam on wet hair, from root to tip.

Lastly, create height at the root with the Session Hair-Up Brush and complete with a headband. Watch the how-to.
