Issa designer Daniella Heleyal paid homage to Kate Middleton (the Duchess is often spotted in her designs) at her spring 2013 fashion show during London Fashion Week. But it was the crazy top knots models sported that had us hearing wedding bells.
The Inspiration: An independent, confident and mysterious woman who lives between London and Brazil
The Hair: Malcolm Edwards, lead stylist for L’Orￃﾩal Professionnel, describes this style as glamorous, chic and sexy. "The hair is quite couture with pieces placed organically so no models are exactly the same. Lots of prep. Lots of hair pieces. And lots of patience."
To recreate this look, prepare hair with L’Orￃﾩal Professionnel Expansion for volume and movement, then rough dry. Pull strands back into a neat, high ponytail and divide the hair into two sections. Tease each portion, then curl with a large-barrel curling iron and gather into invisible hairnets while spraying L’Orￃﾩal Professionel Infinium 4 for hold and shine. To finish, twist hair randomly to create the shape, pin into place and top with orchids.
