How-To: Sexy Helmet Hair

close formula

For his fall/winter 2015 collection, Jonathan Simkhai had a vision for what he wanted lead hair stylist and Bumble and bumble. Global Artistic Director Laurent Philippon to create. “He wanted the girls to look like they just rode a bike and took off their helmet,” says Laurent. So to help Jonathan achieve his vision, Laurent created a dual-textured, “slicked back biker” look that was rough and messy, yet sexy. Here’s his how-to.


1. Blow-dry the hair section by section using the Bumble and bumble. Flat Brush and Bumble and bumble. Thickening Hairspray, directing the roots toward the back. 


2. Heat up Bumble and bumble. Sumo Wax with a blow-dryer, and apply to the roots using your fingers. 


3. Blow-dry product into the hair, and run your fingers through the top to create a messy, spontaneous feel.


4. Finish with Bumble and bumble. Thickening Dryspun Finish to rough up the texture in the back.
