During Fashion Week, I was lucky enough to be invited backstage to watch the creative beauty transformations for the Spring 2013 Collections. One of the hair 'brands' that stood out to me for their creative, and playfulness of the hair wasMoroccanoil
Creating a voluminous modern take on the French Twist, Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil Artistic Director played with unique textures for his strong look for Catherine Malandrino's Spring 2013 Collection. The overall graphic look combines a (close to the head) French Twist with a multi-textured wave of volume at the top creating a fun, standout look to match Catherine's lovely pieces.
For Carolina Herrera, Orlando Pita designed strong, architectural looks giving a sleek and put together look for the Spring 2013 Collection that was inspired by the movement and flow of soft fabrics such as chiffon, organza, twill, tulle and Georgette. The pulled back smooth style, is definitely something worth creating at home, for a confident eye catching look. Modern yet fuss free.
Playing with synthetic voluminous hair for The Blond's Spring 2013 Collection, Antonio Corral Calero added a jolt of adrenaline to the sultry sensuality of million-dollar mermaid Esther Williams and the Early 90's "Sex"looks of Madonna inspired collection. Taking latex 'hoods' covered with synthetic like Barbie hair pieces, Antonio gave the model's fresh faces blasts of color with the hooded head pieces designed to cover their hair. Elevating the crown to create volume and major sex appeal, perfect for the avant-garde styles spotted at The Blond's show.
And last but not least, a personal favorite of mine was Peter Gray's creation for Badgley Mischka's etherial Spring 2013 Collection. Creating wispy, waterfall like cascades of hair to coincide with Badgley Mischka's Midsummer Night's Dream inspiration, Peter created an elegant twist on the angelic look by adding volume, texture (via crimping) and lovely flowers. Now if I could just figure out how to recreate this at home...
