22 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | DECEMBER 2017 The BaBylissPRO group brings new meaning to the term "hat hair." Hat Trick T he team at BaBylissPRO banded together for this month's cover shoot, which was inspired by "hat hair" of all things! (To learn all about the collection, turn to page 82.) Luis Alvarez, who directed the shoot for BaBylissPRO, shares his top advice to stylists for conceptualizing a compilation of their own: • Stick to a theme! Creating "within a box" is one of the most helpful techniques in defi ning the aesthetic of your shoot's concept. It focuses your work and the ability to execute an idea that the viewer easily understands. • Have one director who is wholeheartedly responsible for the overall theme and ensuring that all elements of beauty (hair, makeup, etc.) work in unison to support it. One person must be responsible for making fi nal decisions. • Pre-production is everything. The more you plan ahead in terms of models, wardrobe, lighting, makeup, hair and nails, the easier the day of shooting becomes. Plan, edit and plan some more to ultimately crystalize the concept.
