“If you have any bend to your hair, the trick is to weigh it down and nourish it before you even start styling it,” says von Cannon. To do so, he coated Schoof’s damp hair with Leonor Greyl Serum de Soie Sublimateur Nourishing and Protective Styling Serum and then blow-dried it completely, using a small round brush to pull the hair tight and guide the subtle flip under at the ends.

There are countless reasons you book editorial hairstylist David von Cannon for a job, but at the top of the list: Gisele waves. Indeed, von Cannon regularly tends to the Brazilian supermodel’s hair, but more than that, he has a gift for bringing out the best in anyone’s natural texture, transforming it into lived-in, rumpled just-so, perfect imperfection. Hence: Gisele waves.
A North Carolina native, von Cannon moved to Los Angeles at 19 to train at the Vidal Sassoon Hair Academy in Santa Monica then landed as an assistant at Chris McMillan’s Salon shortly thereafter. He honed his hairdressing skills apprenticing McMillan and Andy LeCompte in LA, as well as fashion world hair legends Didier Malige and Luigi Murenu in New York, learning to navigate celebrity red carpet work, Milanese runways, and Vogue shoots through the years.
In many ways, von Cannon’s styling aesthetic matches his presence on set: easy, unpretentious and always showcasing good taste. It’s no wonder he remains a longtime favorite for cover shoots (recent highlights include Elle, InStyle and The Face), fashion campaigns and a steady roster of It Girls and Hollywood icons—all coveting his signature tousle.
