Get the Look: Carolina Herrera Runway Hair

Carolina Herrera's Spring collection was all about lightness and fluidity, using fabrics such as chiffon and tulle. Hairstylist Orlando Pita of Orlo Salon for Moroccanoil designed strong, architectural looks for the Carolina Herrera Spring 2013 collection. The sleek, shiny, and graphic style was straight on sides and back –with front, mid-brow strands pulled back to simulate the effect of hair held in place by a barrette or ponytail. Instead of clipping, Orlando Pita held the structured detail center front and flowing down the back, in place with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong. The look was straight and very modern.

“It’s definitely a look for the confident woman of today,” said Orlando Pita, “and looks as strong on shorter lengths as long. It’s also fast and easy to do.”

The look relies on three products: new Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse (available in October, 2013), Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong and Moroccanoil Frizz Control. To keep the look sleek Orlando Pita used Moroccanoil Frizz Control to calm occasional flyaways once the look was finished.

Get the Look:

"I first applied new Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse and blow dried the hair straight on sides and back with a Moroccanoil Ionic Ceramic Brush to create subtle volume. I sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong at the root of each section for structure.

“Next, to create the designed effect at the top, I started by taking graduated horizontal 1/2 inch sections starting at the crown. I sprayed each withMoroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong. (The first, at the crown, was sprayed 1” from the root. The next was sprayed 1 and 1/2 inches from the root and the last few sections, closest to the hairline, were sprayed 2: inches away from the root).

“I then smoothed, directed and shaped the hair. Finally sprayed the entire look with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong which not only provided great hold but left the hair looking even shinier and looking as if it was not sprayed.

“I finished with a light misting of Moroccanoil Frizz Control on top of the crown area to make sure there were no flyaways and to accent the design.
