Ever wonder what goes into the complex hairstyles backstage at New York Fashion Week? We tapped Allen Ruiz, the Global Style Director from AVEDA to give us an insider's look. He's created the hairstyles for some of the industry's biggest designers like Michael Kors, Betsey Johnson, and Christian Siriano and in this video, he demonstrates the look he created for Kimberly Ovitz's Spring 2013 show on Birchbox co-founder Katia. The sleek-meets-messy style isn't super wearable day to day, but we love the idea of a toned-down version for a night out on the town.
To get the style, Ruiz separated hair into three sections (top, left, and right), and using AVEDA control force firm hair spray, combed hair on the top and sides of the head into a slicked back style. Next, the two sides were braided into fishtails and woven together for the messy and intricate bottom section.

Twice a year during Fashion Week, we see a few of the same tools and products over and over again backstage at what seems like every show. One of those products is the beautyblender—top makeup artists use it for a flawless, airbrush-like finish, and we've adopted it from the runway for home use. During Fashion Week last fall, we sat down with beautyblender's founder to find out her inspiration for the tool and the best tips on using it. Have you used the beautyblender? Let us know in the comments what you think.
