What birds have in feathers, mammals have in hair. Live births and stylish hair these days are the hallmarks of modern Homo sapiens. The latter in particular is celebrated in the May 2015 issue of W in a front-of-book feature by hair stylist Jimmy Paul featuring Aline Weber. The Bumble and bumble man took inspiration from the Spring 2015 shows in which mad product figured in a variety of looks from a slick pony tail to swooping fringe (both pictured). Whatever the look, there is a product out there to satisfy even the most ambitious amongst the species, which is what truly separates Aline Weber and the rest of us from the birds.
