The season of NBC’s “Fashion Star” might be half over, but the designers continued to bring their A game and so did Suave Professionals Celebrity Stylist Theodore Leaf and his team. Behind-the-scenes this week in the Suave Professionals Salon Theodore styles “Fashion Star” model Lauren. Click here to watch the webisode and check out his how-to tips after the jump.

Look 1: Designers Luciana and Ronnie are paired together and need find the right look that compliments both their styles. For Luciana, Theodore creates a braided chignon and stresses that to keep the braid casual, the trick is to not pull hair too tight. He finishes the look with his newest styling must-have, the NEW Suave Professionals Dry Conditioner, to refresh the ends.

Look 2: Designer Barbara knows exactly what she wants - a sexy look that goes from day-to-night. Theodore applies NEW Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion™ Smooth & Shine Serum before blowing-out the hair with a metal round brush. He then twists Lauren’s hair into a bun and secures it with a pencil, which Lauren removes on the runway for some added drama. In designer Barbara’s words, “the Suave Professionals Salon put the icing on the cake!”
