Cascades of luminous curls flowing in a graceful triangular shape and resting on a smooth, sculptural foundation of a bold French twist. “This look is all about the preparation of the hair. I used cocktails of Moroccanoil products to create the shape and movement—and to make sure the hair stayed healthy, smooth and well-conditioned throughout the styling process. It was important that the hair looked sexy, well cared for and shiny on the runway.”—Peter Gray for Moroccanoil.
The volume and shapes of Italian futurist sculptor Umberto Boccioni, coupled with the flowing curly texture of Elizabeth Taylor’s hair in her award-winning performance in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.
THE BACK: FRENCH TWIST
- “I first applied new Moroccanoil Frizz Control and Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to dampened hair to build in smoothness and soft hold.”
- “Next, I made a long vertical section from the top of the ear to the crown. To bump up volume and lift the foundation of the look, I sprayed Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray at the root and blow-dried each section with a round Moroccanoil Ionic Ceramic Hair Brush.”
- “I backcombed the hair and turned it into a huge French twist, keeping it in place with bobby pins criss-crossed in from nape to crown."
THE FRONT AND CROW: TRIANGULAR FLOWING CURLS
- “To prepare the rest of the hair, I created a classic roller set using a ¾-inch iron, meticulously pinning each curl section by section. I used Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray on individual sections and all over the head, and allowed the curls to set.
- “After releasing the set, I combed hair on the ends gently with a wide-tooth comb to preserve the curls and loosely brushed the hair from root to mid head with a brush for a smoother texture.”
- “Finally the most important part of my work—shaping texture. I backcombed each section, starting at the crown and working forward, to create a large mass of hair. I then created the look—and shaped, twisted, folded and sculpted all the hair into a flowing triangular shape. These shapes were then brought up to the crown area, and secured to the top of the smoothed French rwist. I sprayed the whole look once more with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for a hold that looked soft, flowing and natural.”
