One thing making Style Noted special is that we invite any stylist with a creative spark to submit their work to us; this makes our blog a place where any hairdresser, anywhere in the world, can get their work published. Christophe Lambenne, with many of his images posted on our site, has made the most of our egalitarian attitude. His latest submission –– Feathers –– is another avant-garde tour de force. A swirling mass of a fuzzy, crimped texture combined with a feathery accessory, this look featured in Ellements Magazine, July 2013 issue, book 3. For Christophe’s own styling tips, click notes.
First I made a bun at the back of the head but I kept free a thin section of hair around the face. I covered the hair with purple braided hair (extensions) in order to manage a sort of a braid crown at the top, except the thin section around the face. I used bobby pins and a flat iron to create an Afro-inspired texture in the front. I added real dyed bird’s feathers at the back. Last I used a deep purple hairband on the underneath to hold up the style and finish the look.
