Hairstyles How To: Rural Modern Hair by Moroccanoil

Though inspired by rural life, the hairstyle Moroccanoil designed for the premiere of the Christopher Jossee Fall/Winter Line was incredibly sophisticated. The fashion designer created a "A slender silhouette, inspired by pictures of farmers in Central Europe, stressed [by] the Slavic embroidery design," and wanted hair that would complement the ensemble while maintaining modernity. To fulfill this request, Moroccanoil stylist Delphine Courteille created a fragile yet graphic look that fits in with the romanticism of the collection.
Courteille Shares How The Look Was Created:

  • "First, I prepared the hair with Moroccanoil Treatment to condition and improve manageability.
  • I then started by straightening the hair in sections using a Moroccanoil XLPRO Paddle Brush with Moroccanoil Professional Series Hair Dryer and a flat iron until all of the hair was perfectly straight. To maintain the straight style, I used Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream or Moroccanoil Frizz Control depending on the texture of the hair, adding hydration to tame flyaways and prevent frizz.
  • Then I separated the top section, drawing a clear part from ear to ear to create a half ponytail, and secured using Japanese elastic. I wrapped a small section of hair around the base of the ponytail to conceal the elastic and pinned the end under the ponytail.
  • I pulled the hair back very tightly and used Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium to make the top of the style sleek, smooth and secure.
  • Finally, I assembled all of the hair behind the neck between the shoulder blades and tied it together at the base using a Japanese thread an inch above the ends of the hair.
  • I finished the look with a small drop of Moroccanoil Treatment applied to the ends of the hair, and a spray of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine to create beautiful shine and a lustrous, healthy finish from root to tip."
