Behind the Hair

"Carmen Carrera"

W, September 2013
Hair by Oribe
Photographer: Steven Meisel

For the September issue of
W, Oribe collaborated with photographer Steven Meisel and makeup artist Pat McGrath on a showgirl-themed shoot with trailblazing performer and "it" model Carmen Carrera. "I was inspired by Carmen herself," Oribe said of the glamorous and fashion-forward styles he created.

Get the Look:
1. Spray Thick into wet hair and blow dry.
2. Curl with an iron, then brush through.
3. Use Dry at the root for lift and Soft throughout the lengths for a satiny finish.
4. Detail hair around the face with Smooth Style Serum.
5. For the looks where the hair is up, pull hair tight off the face into a ponytail, smoothing the locks and adding luster with Supershine Light. Be creative and make various shapes out of the ponytails.
