Lead stylist Whitney Olson used an array of VoCe Haircare's high quality products to create the look, including VoCe Haircare Touch Me for added hold, Volume Mist for body and texture, and Refresh Me Dry Shampoo for a matte finish. The look was described as "matte hair inspired by the 70's," a complement to the many prints found in Octavio's Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
