Trendsetters/Mood Board Fancy That Paul Mitchell Editorial Director LUCIE DOUGHTY reveals her latest passions to Executive Editor Amy Dodds. Awapuhi extract fights frizz, perfect for summertime! The Kiss, 1907 YOU ARE MY OBSESSION DOUBLE DUTY I really love the Awapuhi Wild Ginger line from Paul Mitchell, as it helps me to style, have control but leave the hair feeling as if it has nothing in it. The products also have a conditioning foundation to them so I can style and repair at the same time. Gustav Klimt has always been an inspiration. His use of color and detail and obsession with his subjects have always captivated me. SOCIAL SKILLS I stay creative and inspired by social media. Inspiration comes from connecting with people around the world, and I’m interested in what inspires them. My phone is always by my side, as inspiration can strike at any moment—and I want to be ready to capture it with a picture, a note or even a video! FROM LUCIE’S NEW MERLOT COLLECTION! My creative process normally starts with a word, a theme or an idea. Then I do my research and build a storyboard around the topic. I question who the audience is and what message I’m trying to convey. The answers to those questions determine the direction I go in. MUM’S THE WORD My mum, also a hairstylist, told me: “If you’re a hairdresser, you will always have a career.” It’s practical and true. But beyond the practicality of it, hairdressing is an avenue for fashion, creativity, advertising, education and so much more. At the end of the day, a hairdresser can make people feel beautiful. And that’s what truly resonates with me. Lucie Doughty poses with her mother and father. The people I surround myself with are my greatest influences.They are creative, passionate and wise. Recently, I’ve been fortunate to have some amazing mentors come into my life. It’s important to always stay open and learn from others, no matter where you are in your career.” Visit to see more images from the Merlot collection! 88 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | JUNE 2013 KLIMT: DEA/E.
