Here's a great runway-inspired how-to post from OnSugar blog Beauty & the Blog:
I love season changes, especially in fashion and beauty. I did a shoot recently with Brendan Zhang (photographer) and Aaron Kok (stylist). The styling was a fantastic layering of textures; very Yohji Yamamoto-esque. The hairstyle was inspired by Marc Jacobs Spring 2011.

Materials: U-pins, straws, and bobby pins.
- Section the hair in one-fourth to half-inch triangular sections.
- Spray down the hair shaft with a working spray and comb to smooth.
- Wrap the hair in and out around a bended straw or U-pin like a figure 8, [and] secure in through the bottom middle with a bobby pin (the smaller the section and U-pin, the tighter the 'fro).
- Heat with a portable hood dryer for five to 10 minutes, let cool 15-20 minutes. (If you are not using straws or anything meltable for that matter — heat each with a flat iron.)
- Remove the bobby pin and gently pull the end of the hair while sliding out the U-pin/straw from the top.
- Brush out with a comb-out brush.
