Talk about a couture coiff! While Balmain‘s runway pieces aren’t in everyone’s fall budget, the label’s hair products used backstage at their Paris Fashion Week show are within reach. To create the effortless waves seen on Karlie Kloss and the rest of the models, hairstylist Sam McNight took a minimalist approach, working with each girl’s natural hair texture to impart a lived-in feel. Balmain’s Texturizing Salt Spray and the Argan Moisturizing Elixir ($23 and $31; were used where needed to give each girl a relaxed, lived-in look, and for an additional piecey effect, McNight worked the Magic Move Soft hair paste ($30; into the ends. We’re obsessed with the surfer-chic texture Balmain’s Salt Spray creates, and the Argan Elixir is great for all hair types, leaving strands soft to the touch with a glossy shine. Find Balmain’s hair products at, and with the prices starting at $23, these couture pieces won’t break the bank.
