Nature-Inspired Finish for April Cover

Maggie Mulhern | July 10, 2011 | 9:55 PM

When we asked Susanna Romano, co-founder of Salon AKS in New York City, to create a look with the environment in mind for our annual "green" issue, she took us quite literally.

On the day of the shoot, Romano arrived at the photo studio with a vision in mind. Armed with greenery, flowers and plants including cactus, cymbidium orchids, green kermitmum and boxwood vines she would either build them into the finished hair design or add to the fashion.

Romano started with hair that had been shampooed the day before.

"I am using product to make the hair more pliable, add a little moisture and to enhance the natural texture. The blower and iron are used gently to maintain the existing shape."

The result? A stunning, nature-inspired finish worthy of our April cover.
