Wet and Wild Hair

WWD Digital Daily - - News - BY JEN­NIFER WEIL

From Rochas to Balmain and Chloé, tresses were ei­ther damp-look­ing or slicked back for spring in Paris.

Wet and slicked-back hair were à la mode on the Paris run­ways for spring 2019.

Take Rochas, where An­thony Turner de­scribed the woman he had in mind while cre­at­ing the damp look as be­ing in a film noir-type sce­nario. “She’s kind of like in the rain.…There’s a bit of mys­tery sur­round­ing her,” he said. “There’s a lit­tle dark­ness, a lit­tle sex­i­ness.”

Cut to Balmain, where Sam McKnight was in­spired by “a Hel­mut New­ton girl from the Eight­ies — a girl fresh from the swim­ming pool, with wet hair, who combs it back in a mas­cu­line way.

“They have side part­ings. There is an an­drog­y­nous look. It’s wet. It’s shiny.

It’s sexy,” he said.

At Paco Rabanne, Paul Han­lon en­vis­aged a woman trav­eler. “It’s quite con­trolled hair, very, very tight. We’re us­ing a lot of wa­ter in the hair to make it feel like she has sweat a lot,” he said.

Tresses were slick on other cat­walks, too, for brands such as Chloé, Rick Owens and Ann De­meule­meester.
