Chanel Fall 2022 Beauty: A Case for Beveled Bobs, Barrettes, and a Return to High-Maintenance Hair

Robert Hundley

The Beatles soundtrack that played for the duration of the finale of today’s Chanel present was as massive a nod as any to the swinging, Sixties-period scene resourceful director Virginie Viard channeled with her fall 2022 collection, an all-out tribute to tweed and the River Tweed in the Scottish countryside. But acute attractiveness observers likely produced the relationship as quickly as the French house’s current muse, Vivienne Rohner, opened the exhibit in a freshly trimmed Sassoon bob. 

“We truly lower, like, 15 of them,” reveals hairstylist James Pecis, the positive-handed American hair stylist who designed his debut backstage at the Grand Palais this early morning. “It’s rare that persons want a seriously sharp jawline bob,” Pecis states of the beauty university method that each hairstylist ought to grasp right before ascending the ranks: It’s minimize straight throughout to bevel, completely, at the nape of the neck. When done suitable, extremely little styling is necessary—which was the innovation when Vidal Sassoon released the cut 60 a long time ago, hence liberating a new era of females from the purgatory of setting. But significantly like the alt-pixies that have turned up en masse on the runways this year, the sharp bob is waging a comeback, which will only be accelerated by its convert in this article.

You could say the same about the really remarkable blowouts Pecis masterminded that could make even the most wash-and-go gal embrace large-routine maintenance hair. “Thank you for noticing,” Pecis jokes when discussing the spectacular mixture of smoothness, volume, and bounce that models—including Grace Elizabeth and Rianne Van Rompaey—displayed on the runway, modeling their luxurious, facet-parted strands as substantially as those skirt fits and thick-ribbed tights. 

Pecis did not want the hair to seem overworked with a round-brush or curling iron, so he turned to outdated-fashioned velcro rollers alternatively, wrapping sections of hair all around 3 fingers and pinning them where he could to save time. “Velcro rollers at a exhibit with 80 ladies is a little bit of a nightmare,” he states with a giggle. A series of Margot Tenenbaum–style Chanel symbol barrettes, positioned horizontally from the corner of the eyes, or a number of inches on both aspect of an occasional middle part, accomplished what will most likely be one of the season’s major moodboard moments.
