In your opinion, why are women like Twiggy, Brigitte Bardot or Audrey Hepburn still loved and admired nowadays and still a source of inspiration despite fashion and trends’ evolution?
They are women that have influenced generations simply because they were unique. They show a great individuality, and each of them represents a different style within our century. Today their look is hip but at the same time eternal.
Star Icon plays mostly with cold and light shades, such as grey, cold blond and blue highlights. In which ways does natural beauty go along with such unconventional and precious nuances?
“The balance between shades that may seem unusual – as grey and blue - and the naturalness of cuts make the looks feminine and easy to wear. The harmony comes from this contrast and this wants to be the concept behind the collection.”
Among the cuts included in the collection, which is the one that you find the most versatile and which is the one that required the most creativity?
“All STAR ICON looks are very versatile. The styling plays a fundamental role. We used Your Hair Assistant line to give definition and light to blow-dry without make it heavier, creating a light and re-workable styling that allows, even at home, to play with the hair in several ways and change the look with a brush stroke.”
What is the Davines product you simply just can’t work without?
« Your Hair Assistant Perfecting Hairspray is the product that I prefer. Its secret is the lightness and workability. Several hairsprays have a direct diffusion; when sprayed they risk to be heavy and ruin the blow-dry that you are making. The diffusion of Your Hair Assistant Perfecting Hairspray is, instead, very delicate: this is its power. You can remove it with a brush stroke and start again, without washing your hair.”
