Badgley Mischka Spring / Summer 2014 Collection
Hair Design by Peter Gray for Moroccanoil

the imagination of Badgley Mischka this Spring. Jacque Henri Lartigue's black and white seaside photography of the 20s and 30s meets the designer's pastel take on evening looks inspired by modern mermaids.
The Look
Runway stylist Peter Gray for Moroccanoil, inspired by photographer Jacque Henri Lartigue and this season’s collection, created unique 20’s and 30’s nuanced looks with a clear modern vision. The elegant styles highlight smoother, softer waves, flattering textured hair rolls across the nape of the neck, and a sophisticated contrast of glossy (top and side waves) and dry/semi-matte textures (on the hair rolls).

How the Look Was Created
“I started with a small hidden horizontal braid at the nape of the neck to serve as a base for pinning the rolled hair in place.

the new Moroccanoil Root Boost sprayed in and combed through section by section. Moroccanoil Treatment helps condition and smooth the hair and protect it from the heat of the curling irons. I used Moroccanoil Root Boost to push the hair away from the scalp to ensure a three dimensional wave. It creates a semi-matte look and helps to create texture on the ends.
“After rough drying the hair, I used Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong and set the hair using a 1-1/2” curling iron from nape to above the ear and pinned the curls vertically in opposite directions to create a soft textured movement. The hair through the front and sides was set vertically in the same direction and clipped.

the top and front wave area.
“I rolled the hair lengths into a small, loose horizontal roll at the nape of the neck and used u-pins to attach the length of roll to the braided base underneath.
