Favorite Fall Show: I loved the controlled nonchalance of the ponytails we did at Felipe Oliveira Baptista. I used Bumble and Bumble Does It All Styling Spray to make them look sleek without a shellacked feel.

Dream Client:
Adele. I love her music and her style.

Soundtrack of the Season: Stromae's latest album. He's a Belgian musician—kind of hip- hop and a bit electronica.

Go-To Reference Book: I always look to my copy of Vacant: A Diary of the Punk Years for hair inspiration.

Hairstyle He'll Never Get Sick Of:
Braids! They have such history across so many cultures, and they are never boring.
