MORE news At the opening of the Paris Fashion Week, Christophe Decarnin, the designer at Balmain, chose a tough, punk-style collection for Balmain. The models were dressed in motorcycle jackets with silver studs and safety pins, bleached short and long jeans, t-shirts with stains and holes and short skirts with sequins.
The Balmain collection was very popular the last seasons. Different dresses were on the covers of Elle, Vogue and lots of other well known magazines.
The garments were often combined with a ripped pantyhose. Other notable details were zippers, burns, buttons, glitter and shine.
Balmain Fashion “I always thought this look is great,” said the designer behind the scenes on his new collection. “I save all the pictures in my office.” See more Fashion on page 6.

For his Balmain spring/summer 2011 show at the Grand Hotel, Christophe Decarnin did the thing he does best - rocker chic. To the sounds of the Sex Pistols in the background, out came the supplest of leather biker jackets, jeans with washed and crushed finishes - studded with rivets and safety pins - in either classic black or the red, white and blue colours of the American flag. - Vogue -

Hair by Hildo
by Balmain Hair ambassador Hildo As I am working as a beauty stylist it is important to know how trends develop. During my study I learned one thing: when the creative ones drop a trend, everything goes the other way around.
So even before trends as the ‘outof-bed’ look ended I was carrying loads of Balmain Hair products to shows and shoots. The catwalk is the evidence that shiny and healthy hair is coming trough: Marc Jacobs, Lagerfeld, Prada, Cavalli and many other topdesigners chose voluminous, healthy hair for their 2011 spring show. Side parts of hair are getting longer, and thick straight bangs are slowly disappearing.
Long hair is a necessary basis for the styles and updo’s you see on the catwalk and the red carpet. My salon clients have noticed and they now ask me: “How do models and celebrities achieve such hair in that short period of time?” Adding Hair is the answer. Just a few persons are blessed with perfect hair but the majority can always use a bit of extra hair for color, volume or length. Balmain Hair is the perfect 'backstage' partner for that. - Hildo -

hair care is essential to maintain healthy and beautiful hair expert tips
professional service Extensions are not damaging for your own hair. The most important thing is a well trained hairdresser that has the experience in applying extensions. Removing extensions also has to be done by a trained hairdresser. They have a special Quick Remover that dissolves the Keratin bond to remove the extension in a gentle way.
• Have a consultation first, let your hairdresser inform you about the right application for your hair. • Replace the extensions in time, leaving it in longer than recommended may damage your hair. Always get them removed by a professional extension stylist. • Use hair care products from Balmain Hair. • Brush the hair in small sections, start brushing the hair at the hairends and work your way up.
Do not rub your hair with a towel, as it will leave it dull and dry. Gently pat your hair dry!
