Rachel Zoe Spring 2012: Backstage Beauty

For her Spring 2012 presentation, Rachel Zoe, along with Frédéric Fekkai stylist Didier Malige, chose to feature sexy, next-day bedroom hair, taking inspiration from Brigitte Bardot. Think: a morning-after texture that has just the right amount of sultriness. To try the look yourself, start by spritzing on Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturizing Spray Gel to the roots of next-day hair. Use your fingers while blow-drying to bring out any natural wave you may have. When done, refine some of the wave by using two different-sized curling irons in random sections throughout the hair.

For a down look, braid a few loose braids just underneath the surface of the top layer, stopping about two inches before the ends. For a pulled-back version, loosely braid a ponytail beginning at the nape, allowing most of the ponytail to hang free. Leave a few tendrils out, and finish off with a few spritzes of the brand's Sheer Hold hair spray. Then, all you'll have to do is fight 'em off with a stick.
