MADE New York Fashion Week
The Blonds Spring/Summer 2013
Designers: David and Phillipe Blond
The Blonds Inspiration “Madonna meets Esther Williams.
Hair Design by Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil Artistic Director
A jolt of adrenaline on the New York Fashion Week runway. Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil Artistic Director, created fierce, glamorous hair looks for The Blonds Spring / Summer 2013 collection. Inspired by the sultry sensuality of million-dollar mermaid Esther Williams and the early 90s “Sex” looks of Madonna, the avant-garde style had a strong, iconic edge.
Energizing the face with blasts of color, each model’s hair was hidden under vivid, red latex hoods that edged around the hairline and neck. Barbie-like synthetic hair overflowed from the caps, elevated at the crown and cascaded down the back. Strands were high-gloss smooth with the ends waved for movement.
Moroccanoil products used to create the look: Moroccanoil Treatment, Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium and Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray.
How The Look Was Created
“I started by steaming the synthetic hair pieces completely straight, then used Moroccanoil Treatment as a primer to give a boost of shine and soften the texture.
“Next, I placed the models’ hair into the latex hood and attached the hair pieces.
“I then backcombed the crown for structure, height and volume, and brought the hair back down and smoothed its surface. I used a curling iron to create waves and volume from mid-hair to ends for movement and bounce.
“I sprayed the entire look with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium for a hold that allowed freedom to move, and added shine.
Can’t wait til next season!
