Glow S03E08 (Keep Ridin’)

Bash Howard (Chris Lowell), heir to the Howard Foods business empire and producer of GLOW, is one of my favourite characters of the show, so a scene set in his bathroom was very much welcomed by yours truly, who couldn’t wait to take a look at his beauty products.

First on the left of the marble top, there’s a bottle of Ralph Lauren Polo, the aromatic fragrance created in 1978 by Carlos Benaim. No surprises here: Bash is a flamboyant ring announcer and commentator, but he’s very conservative when it comes to appearances. A relatively traditional eau de toilette like Polo suits his character.

His hairstyle is very distinctive and trendy, so it’s obvious there are lots of styling products. There are two bottles of Vitalis hair tonic and an array of L’Oreal Studio Line items (hairspray, two mousses and gel). The choice of using Studio Line is excellent: this hairstyling line was very popular in the 1980s! I liked using Gelling Curls.
