When Jason Wu asked for “elegant and chic” hair at his runway show today, Kérastase hairstylist Odile Gilbert responded with shiny, structural buns. After defining a slick center part, the stylist sectioned models’ hair into quadrants. The lowest section made a braided bun at the nape of the neck while the rest was hairsprayed and criss-crossed over the bun until, voilà!, Gilbert’s Art Deco look was finished. Two silver hair clips skewered the chignon (because there wasn’t enough going on back there already).
