“Undone natural romance. The look is effortless; like she just woke up like this, and embraces her unique texture.” - Odile Gilbert for Schwarzkopf Professional

The Inspiration

“Each Rodarte model has a customized look that is natural and organic. The overall feeling is romantic with art nouveau-inspired crowns and orchid and lily embellishments.” - Kate and Laura Mulleavy, Rodarte

“Undone natural romance. There is an angelic innocence to the hair that balances beautifully against the intricate clothing. The look is effortless; like she just woke up like this and embraces her unique texture.” - Odile Gilbert for Schwarzkopf Professional

Effortless Angel Waves

1. Prep hair by washing thoroughly with Odile’s favorite BC Bonacure Color Freeze Sulfate-Free Shampoo ($18), followed by conditioning with BC Bonacure Color Freeze Conditioner ($21) to seal in color and bring hair to optimal pH. Odile loves how this shampoo and conditioner duo creates a lightweight and long-lasting protective barrier that sets the foundation for any look.

2. When the air is wet, apply OSiS+ Flatliner Flattening Iron Serum ($21) to seal the ends for controlled texture. Blow dry with a diffuser and using your fingers, take small sections and work hands into a twist and squeeze hair to create loose waves that feels effortless, easy, and undone.

3. Once dry, generously shake cult-classic OSiS+ Dust It Mattifying Powder ($23.50) into hands, applying from mid length to ends of the hair with the same twisting and squeezing motion to create texture and wave. This must-have powder gives controlled texture like no other--it’s just about every stylist’s secret weapon for a lived-in look without being weighted down.

“OSiS+ Dust It brings a lived in feeling to the hair without being too heavy.” - Odile Gilbert

Enchanted Undone Chignon
1. Follow steps 1 -3 for Effortless Angel Waves.

2. Using fingers, pull back hair into a loose chignon and pin with bobby pins.

3. Pull out a few short whispering pieces to delicately frame the face.

4. Finish with a light mist of OSiS+ Elastic Flexible Hold Hair Spray ($19) to seal in the look. Elastic provides moveable, touchable, natural hold while protecting hair from the elements -- it’s a backstage staple.
