SEX KITTEN HAIR AND THE ICONIC STYLE OF BARDOT
Once dubbed ‘the most beautiful woman in the world’, Brigette Bardot’s timeless look continues to be emulated by successive generations of supermodels and celebrities alike; from Kate Moss & Claudia Schiffer to Zoe Deschanel and Lily Collins.
To celebrate the iconic style of Bardot, hair veteran Stephen Durham (Urban Therapy Salons, Twisted Sista and American English), in partnership with the Brigitte Bardot Foundation, has created a curated capsule collection of ﬁve must-have products to achieve Bardot’s distinct hairstyles.
THE BARDOT EFFECT:
Bardot was the undisputed sex symbol of the 1960s: unkempt voluminous hair, cat liner, pale pout. Bardot lived with no regrets about her sex-kitten persona, but with a total commitment to her cause, protecting animals. Her sultry style, and the embodiment of undone elegance both on and off-screen, has transcended time and been celebrated and imitated for decades.
Bardot was the siren of a sexual revolution – her femme-fatal look, combined with her sex kitten reputation, propelled a global myth about French beauty and sexuality that endures today.
With her carefree sultry demeanour, effortlessly chic hair and smoky bedroom eyes, Bardot is the epitome of ‘French girl chic’ which has had a profound and lasting impact on fashion and pop culture.
