The Show: Carolina Herrera
The Trend: Fine-textured low twisted chignons with touches of delicate long strings of intricate seed-beads swept throughout strands of the hair.
The Inspiration: The Carolina Herrera Spring 2010 collection was inspired by intricate forms woven in Japanese baskets. The texture of the fabrics and prints was taken from patterns found in the details of these baskets. Colors including amber, rose and caramel were drawn from the waning light cast at the end of a summer’s day, with the luminous quality of this light reflected in the fabrics and embroidery used for evening.
The Hair: Orlando Pita, using Moroccanoil, created beautiful, fine-textured low twisted chignons with touches of delicate long strings of intricate seed-beads swept throughout strands of the hair. The looks, created with Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream, highlighted smooth elegance with a natural ease, texture and flow.
“We used argan-oil infused Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to prime the hair and give it a natural-looking, frizz-free texture with a soft hold,” noted Pita. “The beads were designed to blend subtly through the hair; appearing almost as if they’re embedded in the strands themselves.” Pita plays with texture and keeps the look relaxed and piece-y, without stiffness or tight structure (Tip: Rather than using a brush to blow-dry strands, Pita mussed hair with his fingers as he blow-dried to enhance the tresses’ natural separation and create further definition.)
How to get the hairdo as seen backstage at Carolins Herrera:
Matrix celebrity stylist Mark Townsend created Amy Adams’ beautiful red carpet hairstyles for both the Los Angeles screening and New York premiere of “Julie & Julia.”
For the New York premiere of “Julie & Julia,” Matrix celebrity hairdresser, Mark Townsend, wanted Amy’s hair to be modern and glamorous to match her Carolina Herrera gown. “I’ve been very inspired lately by hairstyles from the 80s with lots of volume,” said Townsend.
Mark started by spraying Biolage volumatherapie Bodifying Spray Gel into Amy’s damp hair…
…and blow dried it with a medium size Spornette Mixed Bristle round brush to get a good deal of volume in her hair. Next, he set her hair with hot rollers, making sure to wrap the hair around the roller from roots to ends to give it a nice wave. Once the hair was cool, he removed the rollers and brushed out her hair with a flat brush, parting it to the side. To add some texture and shine, he sprayed Biolage Shine Endure Spritz into her hair and gave it a scrunch.
