The inspiration for the Roland Mouret Autumn/Winter 2013 collection was the sophisticated, glossy universe of the 1983 vampire film The Hunger, starring Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie.
The tough, uber-confident strength of Deneuve inspired runway stylist Orlando Pita to design bold hair looks with a fresh, modern take on the classic French Twist. Clean-looking, beautifully shiny hair was tightly pulled back into a unique angular roll that graduated in width from the nape of the neck and loosened as it reached the crown. The soft, geometric shape flawlessly complemented the precise, clean silhouette of the designs.
“I first applied a touch of Moroccanoil Treatment to the ends to help make styling the updo more precise, especially on models with longer hair," Pita explains. "For those with very full hair or damaged strands, I used Moroccanoil Treatment throughout the length.
"Next, I applied Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to give hailr a sleek, smooth texture with a soft, natural-looking hold.
"I backcombed the back of the hair, pulled it to one side, and slipped in a row of Kirby grips from center bottom to the top to prepare for the twist.
"Then I sprayed a bit of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong on my brush, went back to the front and tightly brushed all the hair back and close to the head without a part. I twisted the backcombed hair up, rounded and shaped it at the top to create an angular roll. Finally, I twisted the ends and tucked them down and inside.
"To complete, I sprayed the entire look with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong to keep everything in place, and leave hair with a shiny, natural-looking hold."
