"Paris is Burning"

Elle, March 2012

Hair by Tony Chavez

The March issue of Elle features a beautiful spread on French actress Bérénice Bejo, who won raves—and an Oscar nomination—for her work in The Artist. Hairdresser Tony Chavez used Oribe Hair Care products to create Bejo’s carefree style for the shoot. Here’s how to recreate the look:

1. Start by spraying Maximista on wet hair at the roots.
2. Blow dry hair from the root “out” in an upward motion to get lift.
3. When hair is almost dry, begin spraying Après Beach from roots to ends and begin to scrunch and tousle the hair while you finish blow-drying. “This gives a nice, soft, touchable beach texture,” Chavez says.
4. Use a 1 ¼-inch curling iron and bump the ends slightly for a slight bend.
5. Rub Rough Luxury through your fingers and run through the hair while spraying Superfine to achieve both hold and separation.
