On the heels of New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, runway-infused inspiration surrounds the world of professional beauty: from bold clothing with brave prints, to graphic patterns and color experimentation.

Lucie Doughty, editorial director for Paul Mitchell, used this inspiration to encourage her Stencil Graffiti collection, shown exclusively in MODERN.

“I wanted the hair to resemble printed fabric with different textures and patterns,” Doughty says. “As graphic as the patterns are, the fashion is fi tted and shapely.”

Doughty used hand-made stencils and a combination of Paul Mitchell Inkworks, chalk and colored sprays to achieve the patterns. The application mimics stencil graffi ti—a technique of layering colors and then stenciling a fi nal pattern on top.

“The make-up is also very graphic and bold to compliment the hair,” Doughty says. “The styling was kept in a 1960s theme, from hippy child to mod.”
