LUCIE DOUGHTY - THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS
Paul Mitchell® Global Editorial and Digital Director Lucie Doughty speaks to a floral beauty in her latest collection, The Language of Flowers.
Using pressed flowers to create this stunning collection, Lucie suggests using flowers in smaller areas to make these looks more everyday friendly, but no less fashion-forward. Here she shares how to create each look.
Prior to drying smooth, Lucie prepped the hair with Paul Mitchell® Sculpting Foam then created a centre part and took two diagonal back sections from temple to nape and clipped in the back. MITCH® Barber's Classic® was worked onto the base of the remainder of the hair, which was combed down flat and put into a low pony with a small section in the front hairline left out. With the remaining hair she created figure of eights with large hairpins, lightly misted each section with Paul Mitchell Hold Me Tight and then delicately pulled them apart. Flowers cascade down the part and onto the forehead courtesy of MITCH® Barber's Classic® for light hold.
To create this '70s-inspired look, Lucie round-brushed in Awapuhi Wild Ginger® Texturizing Sea Spray® onto dry hair, then curled the hair with the Neuro® Unclipped 1" Rod. After cooling and brushing out the hair, she applied a small amount of MITCH® Barber's Classic® to the base, and used a fine-tooth comb to sculpt the hairline. After spraying hair with Paul Mitchell® Extra-Body Finishing Spray®, Lucie dabbed more MITCH® Barber's Classic® onto the part and gently applied the flowers.
Lucie prepped with Awapuhi Wild Ginger® HydroMist Blow-Out Spray®, which was round-brushed into the hair, and then created a deep side part. After spraying with Paul Mitchell® Hot Off The Press®, she created a slight bend on the ends with the Neuro® Unclipped Styling Rod. MITCH® Barber's Classic® was applied to the base and combed through, then complementary flowers were applied.
