After separating the hair into two sections from ear to ear, Christine Zilinski created two ponytails on each side. She coiled and pinned one before wrapping the hair around the base of the other and pulling it through the middle. A bit of Davines Defining Glam Power Spray and a brush were used to achieve a rough, unfinished look.

<br /> Shades of Grey<br /> <br /> Davines North American Artistic Team member Christine Zilinski channels Grey Gardens in her breakout collection.<br /> <br /> Salon Concrete owner Christine Zilinski tells a tale of transformation—from polished to undone, proper to unraveled, and controlled to wildly rebellious—in Grey Gardens, an American Salon exclusive. Inspired by the film about sophisticated, aristocratic women who slowly descend into madness, the collection of chic yet avant-garde designs expresses the changing state-of-mind through beauty, fashion and architectural elements. Says Zilinski, who used Davines products to create the looks, “Structured shapes become loose and take on an eccentric quality, while wardrobe complements the theme, taking a turn from light and feminine to mismatched and bold.” —Kelley Donahue <br /> <br /> Rock Stars<br /> David Raccuglia, Paul Wilson and the<br /> Art + Science Creative Team boost<br /> the hipness quotient of hair.<br /> When two creative forces unite, you’d expect artistry to<br /> kick into high gear. “That’s been the case since David<br /> Raccuglia and I acquired Art + Science Salons earlier<br /> this year,” says Paul Wilson, who serves as the creative<br /> director of the Art + Science Creative Team. Raccuglia,<br /> a celebrated photographer; Wilson; and Wilson’s posse<br /> of stylists immediately set to work collaborating on<br /> hair trends that are relevant and then releasing them in<br /> collection form. Their first compendium, dubbed Abstract,<br /> hones in on the topography of key shapes. “Hair—<br /> especially women’s—is really being influenced by late<br /> 1960s to early ’70s rock icons right now,” Wilson says.<br /> “Utilizing natural textures and enhancing them is a big part<br /> of the story. Pure and simple expanded shapes create more<br /> drama.” —Kelley Donahue<br /> <br /> Jewels of the Nile<br /> Matrix Artistic Director Ammon Carver’s new<br /> texture-driven collection evokes the geometric<br /> shapes of ancient Egyptian headdresses.<br /> Ancient Egyptian royals Cleopatra, Nefertiti and King Tut served as<br /> the inspiration for Matrix Artistic Director Ammon Carver’s Walks<br /> Like an Egyptian collection, seen exclusively in American Salon.<br /> To achieve these texture-laden looks, Carver relied on a variety of<br /> techniques, from mini-crimping to setting the hair on pins in a rickrack<br /> pattern, along with Matrix styling products. Bold African-inspired<br /> jewelry and makeup completed the regal images. “I wanted the models<br /> to look like Egyptian goddesses,” Carver says. —Lotus Abrams
