WATCH HER BACK The hair was meticulously pressed with the BaBylissPRO Prima3000 and then delicately coiffed to a French twist with Aquage Finishing Spray. Everyone loves a fashionable hat, but what is the best way to style hair so it remains looking fi erce once the cap comes off? Enter Hat Hair, the newest series of incredible looks from the team at BaBylissPRO. The inspiration behind this collection came when lead stylist and show & education director of BaBylissPRO Nicole Gary traveled to England to attend her best friend's wedding. The bride had asked all the guests to respect the old British tradition of wearing their fi nest hats to the celebration. As a stylist (and a true fan of a great fascinator— the term for these types of hats), Gary immediately started receiving calls from friends and other guests for advice on the best way to wear their hair under their hat. "This unique event sparked the idea for us to develop a collection of looks that redefi ned the often negative phrase of 'hat hair' into a fashion- forward term, and to create beautiful hairstyles that could hold their own beneath a hat, as well as when the hat comes off," explains Gary. To remain authentic to the inspiration behind the theme, the team found an English milliner from the East Village in New York City, and created one-of-a-kind hair looks that transformed the hat and the hair into a symbiotic and fascinating work of hair art. Says Gary, "The bespoke hats set the tone, while the hair follows suit in both shape and texture." DECEMBER 2017 | | 83
