Fall Hair Trend: The Kitten Bump

Two ‘60s “sex kittens,” Brigitte Bardot and Julie Christie in the groundbreaking film “Darling,” were the inspiration behind long, swingy looks with extra height at the crown.

« First, since many of the models were arriving straight from other shows with product in their hair, hair was lightly misted with water before their blow-outs to prep hair for styling. In case models had a lot of product build-up in their hair, René Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo was at every hairstylist’s station to cleanse and refresh hair instantly.

« For full-on volume, René Furterer Volumea Volumizing Conditioning Spray was spritzed on hair and massaged into roots before blow-drying. “The Volumea spray creates the foundation for the style

and provides hold,” says Garren.

« For models with wavy hair, René Furterer Acanthe Curl Enhancing Leave-in Fluid was applied instead of Volumea, but it was kept an inch-and-a-half away from roots to maximize lift at the crown. Both products delivered volume with movement. “I wanted the hair to float,” says Garren.

« Each model was styled according to hair texture, length and face shape. Which meant deep side parts for some, classic ‘60s middle parts for others. And because eyebrow-grazing bangs were a quintessential Mod look—think Marianne Faithfull—some girls were given silky spills of faux fringe. Hair was parted in the center, and two skinny sections were secured with tiny anchors. Next, clip-on bangs were clipped into place and artfully trimmed to look perfectly natural.

« To create the “kitten bump,” two sections of hair at the crown were rolled into jumbo rollers. Once rollers were removed, sections were lightly back-combed. The finishing touch: René Furterer Vegetal Finishing Spray for light control.
