By: Evelyn Chen

A couple weeks ago we attended the Nebulous Beauty event by La Biosthetique who showcased the release of a trend collection of hairstyles presented by Dylan Beatch and Sara Burke.

While hair stylists Dylan (above far right) and Sara (above second from left) delicately handled their models’ hair, guests were slowly drawn in to the “sensory stimulation” show, mesmerized as the hair styles slowly began to take shape.

As fingers wove in between strands of hair, models intermittently walked across the stage donning designs by Evan Ducharme and styled by Sarah D’arcey. The atmosphere of the stage was nonchalant and mysterious, bringing out the attitude and style of the collection.

Dylan Beatch is a local award winning stylist with international training in Germany, Paris and New York.  He has experience photo shooting with the La Biosthetique’s artistic team in Phorzheim Germany and is currently taking appointments out of Black 2 Blond in Kitsilano. www.black2blond.ca/

La Biosthetique Pop Art Trend Show F/W 2014

By: Justine Barnes & Nicolette

LA BIOSTHETIQUE wowed the audience with their 2014 Fall/Winter Pop Art Trend Show at Celebrities nightclub on Sunday, September 21st.  Think Andy Warhol, graphic prints, comics, rock & roll and fashion rebels. “Pop is everywhere. It takes everyday things and elevates them to art. It takes high art from museums and turns it into everyday things. LA BIOSTHETHIQUE’s new collection adds the spirit of Pop art to this season’s hair and make-up trends.  Artist Robert Indiana once said ‘pop is love, for it accepts everything’.”

La Biosthetique

La Biosthetique We managed to sneak back stage before the show and see some of the looks before they were presented on stage.  Anna Riese, lead makeup artist, informed us on the makeup looks that were trending.  “The 60s because that’s where the pop theme started.  We were inspired by twiggy and Brigitte Bardot.  It’s about color and contrast, having warm and cooler colors collapsing together makes it so interesting.”  An example of that would be, “using metallic golds and metallic blues with baby dolls lips like Bridgette Bardot had.  It is very innocent, but still sexy.  We focused on the eyes or lips but not both.  The makeup is a little bit more quite, like it was in the 60’s.”  She confirmed that bold, filled-in brows is still a big trend for fall, as are velvety rose-colored lips, with a powdery finish – quite but intense color. 

The hair this season, masterminded by Marc Riese, Canadian Creative Director of LA BIOSTHETIQUE, included fresh cuts and coloured looks. “Soft layers for mid-length hair finished off with a precise fringe in sophisticated cool and warm shades of brown.”  This was also showcased in gorgeous shades of blonde.  For a slightly more androgynous but still elegant look, “light and radiant short-haired looks, consisting of cool and clear shades of blonde. The shape is graduated with lots of volume at the top and back of the head.”  The bob – we love the bob – “although it never looks the same and is completely variable thanks to the different lengths on both sides, it is emphasized by the fascinating colour graduation of bright and brilliant shades of red – depending on how you style.”  And for the guys, “an un-styled look that is rough and ever-changing. The soft short-haired look for men is created by a special cutting technique at the top of the head with the hair left in its natural colour.”

10403671_714067068677178_3103646650814978351_n The evening started off with the announcing of the  winner of the 2014 Beauty Stylist competition, Dylan Beatch (above centre).  A stylist from Black2Blond located in Vancouver, who will now compete in Paris for the international competition – huge congrats Dylan!

And the show began!  Each segment was opened up with a dance routine which set the vibe perfectly and there was no looking away.  Great dancing, over the top hair looks and great styling by Gian Carlo, Lady Fashion Stylist.
