Yet another amazing hands on collaboration for luxelab and its stylists!
Kien Hoang, owner of Umbrella Salon in San Jose California and top Oribe artist, shared the looks that Oribe and his team perfected for the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) 50th anniversary. This event featured an incredible runway show documenting the past five decades in hair and couture.
Kien shared his view on how using one signature foundation the stylists would be capable of quickly fast forwarding hair from one decade to another, while still giving each look it's own extreme personality.
As ever, luxelab's philosophy of studying hair history for use in predicting its future allowed our team to experience the past 50 years in a modern way as they perfected 5 distinctive 'do's.
Love that LuxeLabbers love growing!
