By Orlando Pita, creator of Orlando Pita Play. “Everyone wants volume—it’s a seasonless look,” says Pita. “What makes this look cool is giving it a little texture but no ’80s root lift, so it’s a bit more rock ’n’ roll.”
GET THE LOOK
Start in the shower. To get major volume without stripping your hair, use Orlando Pita Play Foam Full Volumizing Shampoo, followed by Orlando Pita Play High Spirited Leave-In Conditioner. The leave-in bulks up each strand with proteins that make hair look and feel thicker while it also adds hydration to keep hair looking healthy—particularly crucial for those who have hair colour that’s lighter on the ends. Elevate your blow-dry. Apply Orlando Pita Play Body Breakthrough Hairspray from roots to ends on wet hair. Using whichever type of brush is easier for you—paddle or round—blow-dry each section in the opposite direction from which hair falls. “I find that this gives maximum lift,” says Pita. Get a natural middle part by brushing hair straight back, then pushing it forward from the back of the head. The hair will naturally separate in a not-too-perfect centre part.
