A mystical rock 'n' roll theme prevailed when Sheri Bodell debuted her spring 2007 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios in Los Angeles. Whimsical dresses adorned with embellishments were offset by highly textured hairstyles for an exotic fairy-princess look. "We wanted the hair to look unique and mysterious," says Tami Jensen, who hails from the hip Los Angeles salon PRIVé. Jensen used Privé texture and hair sprays and crimping irons, as well as leaves, tree branches and fairy dust to create the artistically exaggerated designs. —K.D.
