The crowning glory, hair is as important as the outfit, make-up and accessories for Balmain Paris runway looks. A part of the fashion house, Balmain Paris Hair Couture transfers the latest catwalk trends to luxury accessories for tresses.

Its representative in Thailand, Firster by King Power, recently launched the autumn/winter 2023 accessories and haircare collection.

Crafted from the finest materials, the Renaissance-inspired accessories include two 18-carat gold-plated headbands -- the Eclat sparkles with Swarovski crystals while the other is designed with linked gold chains recalling love locks on Pont Des Arts bridge in Paris.

The limited-edition silver headband is made from genuine napa leather and embellished with an 18-carat gold-plated logo.

Priced over 20,000 baht, these elegant headbands feature a nubuck lining to ensure extra grip onto the hair as well as comfort.

Also in supple napa leather, the golden barrette with an 18-carat gold-plated hairpin is shaped to fit seamlessly around ponytails and buns.

Adorned with silver-tone details and an engraved logo, the 18-carat gold-plated Backstage Clip Pour Cheveux is another limited edition.

Balmain Paris has a rich heritage of almost 80 years. After the liberation of Paris, Pierre Balmain established his eponymous atelier at 44 Rue François Premier in 1945.

The hair couture heritage originated in the 1960s, when the French designer was introduced to Dutch pharmacist-turned wigmaker Dick Guliker. They created a range of wigs, which became a mainstream item and a part of the total look.

Guliker's sons Richard and Steward are now art director and chairman of the board of Balmain Paris Hair Couture.

An understanding of human hair allows the formulations of premium hair care and styling products for both men and women.

The autumn/winter 2023 collection features Moisturizing and Revitalizing Care Sets of shampoo, conditioner and mask in Versailles gift boxes.

Styling products include Silk Perfume as well as Thermal and Sun Protection Sprays. 

The Leave-in Conditioning Spray and Moisturizing Styling Cream along with a medium-sized barrette are boxed in the Winter Brilliance Set.

Three styling items, Texturizing Volume Spray, Volume Mousse Strong and a backcomb brush team up for the Magnificent Volume Set.

The styling range further include Thermal Protection Spray that creates an invisible shield against the heat of a blow dryer, flat iron or curling tong and Silk Perfume enriched with argan oil and silk protein to give hair a shiny finish.

Containing UVA and UVB filters, Sun Protection Spray further safeguards hair and enhances the shine.

Balmain Paris Hair Couture products are retailed at Firster By King Power flagship stores at King Power Mahanakhon and Siam Square Soi 7 as well as on its online platform and app.
