Flick through our fave A-list looks to start piecing together some incredible ideas for your hair. Take your new season cue from Sam McKnight, who created these pretty braids for the Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer show in Paris. Hair extensions were used to to create what McKnight called 'tapered, child-like braids'. Hair was blow dried straight, to eliminate frizz and then Oribe Dry Texturizing spray was spritzed through the hair to create movement, before the look was finished off with Sebastian Collection Shpritz Forte Finishing Spray to smooth.
