As winner of the 2008 John Paul Mitchell Systems Photo Shoot Competition, Christophe Chevillard—a Swiss Paul Mitchell educator—worked with Paul Mitchell editorial director Lucie Doughty to build his shoot idea, a texture collection built on hazy, windswept styles. “There has been a long period of smooth, flat hair and now I feel we are moving more towards celebrating texture and body,” says Chevillard. “I was very moved by the recent looks on the fashion runway which complement my personal preference for big hair and somewhat disheveled looks.” Chevillard won the contest after submitting a portfolio illustrating his top cuts, colour and styles over his career along with inspiration boards for an ideal editorial shoot. He says he created his couture-inspired collection by changing the hair texture of simple, pinned updos and adding colourful thread to enhance the shapes.
