Delhphine has used the model's long hair to her advantage by pasting down her roots to give the effect of wet hair and used Mythic Oil Original Oil by L'Oréal Professionnel on the ends.

Exclusive Q&A for Hair Trend News: 5 Questions for Delphine Courteille
Why did you decide to become a hairstylist?
DC: I've always loved photography and fashion design. I also love hair and I've always wanted to be an architect, so I decided to combine the two to become a 'hair architect'! [laughs]
What inspires you?
DC: I am really passionate about architecture. And like architecture, styling hair is based around lots of volume and different textures, so the two universes are very similar.
Out of the three looks that you created, which one was your favorite?
DC: The baby doll look, it's so 60s - I love that era. I also really liked the braided look I created, but I prefer to work with volume.
In your opinion, what's the biggest trend for SS16 (in terms of cut, color or style)?
DC: I really like baby bangs, and it's definitely going to be a trend this season. A lot of models from New York have already been seen with the style and have worn it on the runways so you'll be seeing the look in lots of photos on the internet and in magazines – baby bangs are definitely going to carry over to street style soon. Other styles we've been seeing a lot of recently are fishtail braids, messy buns and lots of braids: R'n'B braids inspired from the Fugees era and really tight braids will be trending this summer. In general lots of hair looks this season will have a 90s/beginning of the 2000s feel to them.
What's the best hair advice you can give someone?
DC: It's so important to treat your hair. If you want to have beautiful hair you need to take the time to condition it and really treat it. The Pro Fiber haircare range, for example is a great deep-conditioning treatment that will last for a few weeks. If hair is healthy, any colors applied to it will look radiant and fade less quickly, and salon blowouts will be exceptionally beautiful!
