Using all Sebastian Professional products, Omar Antonio and Nato VanDine toyed with their creativity to create two vintage-yet-modern, harlequin-type looks for their Nightshade collection. 

The stylists juxtaposed shapes with sleek, head-hugging hair around the head, then creating drama with the ends in a playful texture. 

"Loosely based on a 1920's silent movie theme, we wanted to create something dark yet beautiful, slightly gothic," Antonio says. "We took a different take on the 20's finger wave. We decorated two beautiful ombré wigs with hundreds of bronze bobby pins, twisting and sculpting waves into the hair."

The stylists used the following products: Dry Clean Only, which Antonio says is an amazing product to use when working on wigs; Zero Gravity and Shaper Fierce were used to suspend the hair into space.
