Surf was a big theme that emerged on the S/S 12 Mens runways and its influences were seen in the textured, “just got back from the beach” ‘dos. Tomo Jidai, the hairstylist extraordinaire behind the Thierry Mugler S/S 12 mens show, took a few minutes to answer questions about the Mugler hair.
1. What was inspiration/s for the look?
This did not come from one idea. It was a mix of Japanese cartoon character, surfer, myth and Caravaggio.
2. How did you create the look?
Wet hair and apply Shiseido Blow Dry lotion then blow dry hair in a forward direction (use straightening iron depending on model). Then use Shiseido Design Tex 03 (water wax) and 06 (hard paste) to make narrow shape. Use straightener again if needed.
3. What is a key S/S 12 mens hair look?
60’s geometric haircuts with texture, like the Mugler hair.
