Wanna get the looks created by Odile at some of the hottest shows this season? Here’s how Odile created the stunning looks backstage at each of the shows.

Inspiration: The bold primary colors and tribal prints worn by the African Masai tribe
Hairstyle: An elegant, yet spontaneous chignon intertwined with bold-colored deconstructed woolen beanies

To get the look:
Apply a walnut sized amount of Nectar Thermique to wet hair and gently massage into the lengths and ends. Blow-dry straight. Part hair at the crown and create a zig-zag braid to serve as the foundation for the look
Bobby pin the deconstructed woolen beanie to the braid and weave 1-inch sections of hair around the fabric, creating a basket-weave type pattern. Spray hair with Chroma Cristal to give hair a beautiful shine. Alternate the hair with the fabric until the beanie is completely intertwined and all loose ends of hair are tucked into a chignon-like up-do. Finish with Double Force Controle Ultime Hair Spray to hold hair in place

Inspiration: A modern-day Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s mixed with haute couture
Hairstyle: An elegant but sophisticated twist on the traditional up-do

To get the look:
Layer Ciment Thermique and Mousse Volumactive on damp hair and blow dry. Add a few drops of Elixir Ultime for shine and begin brushing hair up into a high ponytail. Curl hair in sections, pinning them in a delicate way around the face and the crown of the head, spraying Double Force Control Utime Hair Spray as you work. Adorn the style with a small black silk ribbon

Inspiration: Downtown, NYC girl
Hairstyle: Fresh and pretty, a very natural and understated blow-out

To get the look:
Apply a walnut sized amount of Ciment Thermique to wet hair. Gently massage into the lengths and ends. For hair that needs additional volume, prior to blow dry, apply Mousse Volumactive, particularly on the ends, to add texture and definition. Part hair in the middle and blow dry hair using a round brush. Once hair is completely dry, apply a dime sized amount of Elixir Ultime throughout hair to provide a luminous and radiant shine

Inspiration: Muse, China Machado’s 60’s style
Hairstyle: A sophisticated bouffant pompadour up-do with an edgy twist

To get the look:
Prep hair with Ciment Thermique and Mousse Volumactive to give hair body. Blow dry hair, smoothing Elixir Ultime over lengths and ends for shine. Back-comb the top section, teasing the roots to create a pompadour. Pin hair into a French twist leaving some loose ends out in the back for an edgy twist.
