Boasting a cavalcade of accolades – and talent in spades – Mal Masci is no doubt one of the industry’s finest hair stylists. We caught up with the Revlon Professional Ambassador following her Issue 5 Cover Shoot with Travis Bandiera for Revlon Professional.

Tell us about your most recent collab with Revlon Professional and The Journal.

MM: I love working with Revlon and The Journal; the inspiration and motivation I get from working with these two teams is phenomenal. I’m humbled to be part of this dynamic group collaboration.

Can you talk us through the final looks?

For makeup, a nude lipstick was used, with a whisper of pink and thick gloss over the top. Eyes were transparent, and face was bare with a healthy glow. The styling blew me away; we had suits made, big jackets, long culottes and unisex shirts – all in pastel tones.
