Oscar Blandi Perfects The Bed Head

For her Fall 2008 collection, Jenni Kayne was inspired by the 90’s grunge scene and styles from the 30’s and 40’s. For the hair, she wanted the models to look “real,” so hairstylist Oscar Blandi created sophisticated, bed-head hairstyles to compliment the designs.

Creating these “very organic and very earthy” dos is a little more involved that one might think – just as a nude makeup look requires more than taupe shadow and a swipe of lip balm. I mean, does anyone really wake up looking this chic?

First, the mane maestro used , which refreshes and revives hair by removing dirt and buildup. Next, he sprayed on hair, concentrating on the roots; this heat-activated product adds body and texture to hair, while providing flexible hold and incredible shine. He finished the styles with , which allows hair to withstand heat and prevents static.

Though not used at Jenni Kaye’s presentation, worth a mention is , a convenient new version of Oscar’s Jasmine Oil Serum. This spray moisturizes and controls frizz, and makes locks lustrous. I especially appreciate the light formula, which doesn’t build-up or weight down my fine hair.
