Multi-Facet Fashion

Mary Atherton | July 10, 2011 | 6:19 PM

In addition to owning a string of smashingly successful salons throughout Europe and being the president of Intercoiffure Mondial, Klaus Peter Ochs is one of the world’s finest hairdressers.

We always sit up and take notice when he releases his semi-annual collections, and this season’s predictions, “Fashion Diamonds,” don’t disappoint.

The concept: combine the luxury of ‘50s haute coiffure with the geometry of ‘80s geometry. Ochs and his KPO team combined them, he says, “because retro only makes sense when something new arises from it. These are high-carat hair designs—unique in cut and color.” Here are some key color makeovers.




For KPO’s “Fashion Diamonds” collection: Hair by Klaus Peter Ochs, with artistic team members David Carsidona and Simone Stecker,; concept and photography by Axel Zajaczek,; photostyling by Elske Schroder; make-up by Gudrun Muller. Hair care and color by Wella and Sebastian; cosmetics by Trucco.
