Mercedes-Benz Spring '11 Fashion Week NYC: Elene Cassis

Backstage at the Elene Cassis show, lead stylist for L'Oréal Professionnel Amit Abraham told me he was calling the hair look—an airy diagonal French twist—an "'American Twist,' because everything is bigger here." To get the look, Abraham crimped the hair for volume and texture before twisting it and pinning it in place, leaving some pieces of hair out to keep the look fresh for spring. L'Oréal Professionnel Texture Expert Infinium #2 and #3, in addition to Densité for some models, helped him achieve the look.
