The look:

Orlando Pita for Orlo Salon using Moroccanoil created a unique, gracefully looped ponytail to complement the elegant look of the designs. It was shaped into a triangular form and balanced with a wide wrap of hair at the nape of the neck. The hair was parted in the middle, with soft, loose strands falling naturally around the ears.

The how-to:

  • “I used Moroccanoil Light, one of my favorite products, on the models before starting to style, especially on those who had damaged or fragile hair from their various shows. It absorbs right in and transforms it instantly. I like how it strengthens while it conditions, and leaves the hair with a healthy, natural-looking shine.”
  • “I then applied Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream on dampened hair for a smooth soft hold, [and] then blow-dried it straight.”
  • “Next, I parted the hair in the middle and pulled it into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. The hair was teased a bit to make it look fuller, especially on the models who had fine hair, and sprayed with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray."
  • “The teased length of the ponytail was looped onto an elastic in a circular fold, shaped into a triangle, and a section of hair wrapped around the elastic to finish. I secured everything with hairpins and sprayed the entire style with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray. It gives a great hold but still lets the hair move and look natural.”
  • “Finally, I finished off with a light mist of Moroccanoil’s new Frizz Control to make sure the hair stayed smooth and frizz-free on the runway."
