Paris design group Beef has taken inspiration from the classic British milk bottle in creating packaging for a new range of haircare products for L’OrÃ©al Professionel. Beef consists of three designers – Simon Clark, Adrien Haas and SÃ©bastien Dragon – trained by Philippe Starck.

The 16-strong range will only be sold by hairdressers.
