Orlando Pita styles Carolina Herrera’s spring 2010 collection

Session styling guru Orlando Pita whipped up an array of beautiful hair confections in New York recently for Carolina Herrera’s spring 2010 show.

Inspired by the intricate beauty of Japanese woven baskets, Herrera’s latest collection exhibited a calming palette of amber, rose and caramel with plenty of ivory thrown in for good measure – all of which was augmented by the relaxed and ‘piecy’ hair looks created by Pita.

With Moroccanoil on hand, Pita created a series of textured low twisted chignons ornamented by long strings of intricate seed-beads swept through the hair. “We used argan-oil infused Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to prime the hair and give it a natural looking, frizz-free texture with soft hold,” said Pita.

“The beads were designed to blend subtly through the hair; appearing almost as if they were embedded in the strands themselves.”

Pita ensured the tousled unstructured look was maintained by using a brush to blow dry the hair while intermittently mussing it with his fingers to enhance its natural separation and create lots of definition.

A celebrity favourite, Moroccanoil is enjoying cult status with its luxurious argan-oil infused products famed for their ability to nourish, strengthen and protect the hair in a weightless formula.
