The whimsical idea of a secret garden inspired Reem Acra’s SS17 collection, which featured plenty of ruffles, lace and asymmetric cuts. R+Co educator and lead stylist Thom Priano created a soft, pulled-back style – complete with desirable volume and alluring curls – that fit the charming energy of the line.
Recreate the look:
Prep hair with GRID Structural Setting Spray throughout. Curl small sections with a mini curling iron. Pin to set and cool for a natural curl texture. Brush hair out. Tease one inch sections throughout to create a base for the style. Pull hair back into tight French twist, leaving the front a bit loose. Pull at the top to make an abstract shape. Spray entire head with OUTER SPACE Flexible Hairspray for hold and apply CONTINENTAL Glossing Wax for separation. Depending on hair type, use FOIL Frizz + Static Control Spray or TINSEL Smoothing Oil as needed. Cushnie et Ochs’ SS17 collection is a nod towards 1980s Miami, as well as a take on Michelle Pfeiffer’s iconic character Elvira Hancock in Scarface – with a modern twist. Sultry and sophisticated, the clothing needed a hairstyle to match, and so Moroccanoil’s Antonio created a soft hairstyle that exuded femininity to see the models down the catwalk.
Recreate the look:
Prep damp hair by applying a coin-size amount of Moroccanoil Treatment and Heat Styling Protection from root to tip to create the perfect styling foundation. Lift hair in sections from the scalp and apply Moroccanoil Root Boost to the roots, to create fullness and volume. Separate the hair into two-inch sections and blowdry smooth using a ceramic hairdryer, bringing the ends in as you go. Once hair is dry, use a one-anda-half inch curling iron to create a slight bend in the front sections of hair only, the broken wave helps to accentuate the cheekbones. Next, use a fine-tooth comb to create a deep side parting. Use the highest point of your eyebrow to guide where you want the line of your parting to fall. Finish by misting the entire head with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium for a smooth, sleek and luminous finish.
