For the Narciso Rodriguez Spring/Summer 2014 collection, runway stylist Paul Hanlon for Moroccanoil created luxurious, softly textured looks that were free-flowing, modern and contemporary. The styles were inspired by the confident, naturally beautiful woman of today with a subtle nuance of 1940’s award-winning Italian film actress Monica Vitti, including a sexy and sophisticated side part with a soft loose wave in front.
“The quality of the hair is all important in this look,” said Hanlon. “Lots of shine, richness and a beautiful, healthy, vital quality to the hair. Moroccanoil products worked well to create these looks because of their remarkable conditioning properties. They’re very light so you can build them up. It’s all about well-conditioned, quality, super-luxurious, shiny hair.”
How The Look Was Created
“I started by applying Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection from mid length to ends to ensure good hair condition during the blow dry.
“Next, I applied a generous amount of Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse (for added body with medium hold), then brushed it through the hair.
“I took oversize sections using a large Moroccanoil Ionic Ceramic Round Brush, and blow dried. This was almost like a salon blow dry but I wanted to achieve only a bit of volume with substantial shine while rolling in the ends. The oversize sections created movement without using irons or tools.
“When I finished, I sprayed a bit of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray on the side part to make sure all baby hairs were lying flat. I clipped down the sides to take a bit of volume out and sprayed the top area again for hold with a nice shine.
“To complete, I applied 1 – 2 drops of Moroccanoil Treatment Light from mid-length to ends (rubbing in my palm and between fingers and combing through the entire look). We didn’t want the hair to look too done or static but to have an ease and sexiness to it, as if the fingers were just run through the hair.”
