Joico/ISO Color Specialist ADAM MORENO has been a hairdresser for 16 years and an educator for 10. "I started out doing theater," he says, "and I studied art from the time I was old enough to draw." It shows in his wonderfully imaginative color palettes. Moreno remembers watching a platform artist while he was still in beauty school. "I knew that's what I wanted to do," he says, "because it appealed to both of my interests—the theater and art." —M.D.

Celebrity stylist Ted Gibson created a series of pictures to show how a knot is this fall's new take on the standard bun. He applied Ted Gibson Build It Blow Drying Agent before blowing out the hair, then sectioned it down the center and added elastics to each ponytail at the top of the head. He braided each section and twisted the braids until they buckled, then secured them with a couple of bobby pins and sprayed with his Beautiful Hold Hairspray. —C.W.
