avant-garde holiday hair stylist inspiration

As hair and makeup-artists, we love to think beyond the ordinary and push the limits. While avant-garde inspirations may not always translate directly to salon customers, they can flow into the styling as muse and help us add a special je-ne-sais-quoi to our work. We pulled together a few inspirations for you for the holiday season:
