The nets also served as veils for some of the models. 03 of 16 Pamella Roland ImaxTREE Hairstylist Paul Labrecque used products (Volume Style and Volume Finish) from his eponymous line to create a soft wavy style that had a lot of movement and volume. 04 of 16 Ports 1961 ImaxTREE With the help of extensions, Aveda stylist Jon Reyman created long braids on the models after curling the hair. The finished look is a soft, slightly disheveled romantic 'do. 05 of 16 Tory Burch ImaxTREE Redken's Yannick D'Is was inspired by a young pretty girl with perfectly tousled hair. Models' hair was prepped with texturizer and then curled around a one-inch iron. When the whole head was curled, stylists twisted it up into a bun while the makeup was done and then hair was released and shaken out for the naturally tousled look. 06 of 16 Yigal Azrouel ImaxTREE Redken hairstylist Teddy Charles and his team blew out models' hair, added texturizer, then flat ironed to get the sleek look. 07 of 16 Phillip Lim ImaxTREE Taking Katie Holmes as inspiration, Odile Gilbert used wigs (in one of six shades) to give models this edgy-retro banged bob. 08 of 16 Derek Lam ImaxTREE The hair at Derek Lam was simple and fresh: using a Mason Pearson brush, stylists brushed models' hair into low side ponytails and then raked fingers through the top of the hair to give it a natural look. 09 of 16 Marc by Marc Jacobs ImaxTREE Redken's Guido Palau contrasted the over-the-top hair looks he did for the Marc Jacobs show with something much simpler at the Marc by Marc Jacobs show: middle parts and low ponytails. 10 of 16 Chris Benz ImaxTREE To get this faux bob, Redken stylist John Rudant curled models' hair and then pinned it up to give the illusion of a cropped 'do. 11 of 16 Behnaz Sarafpour ImaxTREE Kerastase hairstylist Ashley Javier juxtaposed the models' high-volume flat top with the French twist in the back. He used Kerastase Full Volume hairspray to achieve the height and staying power required for this futuristic-meets-the-past look. 12 of 16 Nanette Lepore ImaxTREE To get this tousled look that matched the Bohemian clothes, hairstylist Leonardo Manetti used a texturizing mousse before blow-drying hair and then added random bends to the hair with a curling iron. He finished by teasing the hair and lightly brushing over it. 13 of 16 Lacoste ImaxTREE Bumble and Bumble stylist Dennis Lanni and his team spritzed models' hair with holding spray, then wrapped it around a curling iron to get the soft waves. 14 of 16 Carolina Herrera Frazer Harrison/Getty Images Hairstylist Orlando Pita, who called this look "young and easy," achieved the style at Carolina Herrera by first adding volume to the top of the head, then pulling the hair back into a low bun and securing it with flower-embellished pins that matched the shoes in the show. 15 of 16 Reem Acra Paul Morigi/WireImage Bumble & Bumble stylist Laurent Philiano aimed for sophistication with this off-center chignon on the models at Reem Acra. To recreate this look, start by making a deep side part and smoothing the hair into a low, side ponytail. Then twist the ponytail into a bun and secure it with pins and hairspray. 16 of 16 Donna Karan Scott Wintrow/Getty Images The hair was styled sleek and straight at the Donna Karan show. While clips were used in the process, hairstylists were able to create the stick-straight look minus any indentations by adding tissue between the hair and the clip before the clips were removed.
