Are you looking for haute Spring hair trends that you can try out today? New York Fashion Week is filled with the hottest style trends from head to toe. For Spring 2015, I caught up with the man behind the stylish tresses found at the best shows that fashion week has to offer. Lead Stylist Orlando Pita for CHI Haircare creates flawless looks that are as fluid and carefree as each collection, showing that from BCBG MAX AZRIA to DVF chic simplicity is something for girl with tresses to strive for this spring.
BCBG MAX AZRIA
The Hairspiration – “The hairstyle is designed by the collection’s aesthetic– the bohemian, free-spirited woman who has style – kind of a California girl. That is why the hair is quite effortless and doesn’t look too worked on– even though it is– it has a little bump in the back and a middle-parting. It’s a nod to the pixie hairstyle, but not necessarily going retro.”
- To prep, we sprayed hair with CHI 44 Iron Guard ($15, ulta.com) to protect strands from thermal styling tools and create volume and a manageable texture.
- Next we blow dried with the CHI TOUCH Touchscreen Dryer ($199.95, ulta.com) but we didn’t use a brush, we use our fingers to make hair straight, but not stick straight.
- We then moved to the back and flat ironed the last two inches of the hair to make ends really straight using the CHI G2 Titanium Ceramic Hairstyling Iron ($159.95, ulta.com).
- We left an off-center part and at the top middle of the head we blow dried hair using just our fingers to direct hair back and get a little lift at the crown.
- We finished with CHI 44 Iron Guard Style & Stay ($15.96, ulta.com), to set the style.
- Before models hit the runway, I’ll use the new CHI Escape Cordless Styling Iron ($109.95, ulta.com / avail 11/14) for last look touch ups to smooth any frizz or flyaways.
Diane Von Furstenberg’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection was inspired by the sun, sea, luxury and intrigue of the Cote d’Azur, and the people who spent time on the sun-soaked stretch of coastline in the 50s and 60s including Picasso, Gaudi and Bardot.
The Hairspiration – “The collection is inspired by the South of France, San Tropez with a bit of gingham and a bit of Picasso and Gaudi influence. They were around a lot in the French Riviera during the 50’s and 60’s, but the collection is more about today.” “Brigitte Bardot was often one of the people in San Tropez, so it’s all loosely based on her – that kind of undone-sexy-lots-of-hair-volume look but not done so 60-esque but more for a girl of today.” “Brigitte Bardot wasn’t perfectly done all the time, which makes her even sexier I think. Although it’s a modern take on her look, it’s not too far from what she was already doing then.”
- “We start by prepping the hair with a good amount of BioSilk Volumizing Therapy Root Lift ($12.50, ulta.com) then to get a lot of lift and volume with our blow-dry we use a large round CHI ceramic brush ($14.95, ulta,com). Then we go over some of the ends of the hair with a CHI Air 1.5″ Curling Iron.” ($59.99, JCP.com)
- “Then we go section by section putting in BioSilk Volumizing Therapy Texturizing Powder ($12.50, ulta.com) on the roots to give even more volume without teasing, because the tease is more 60’s. Then we add even more powder all over the hair to get thick, gorgeous tendrils that look piecey and undone.”
- “I finish it off with BioSilk Volumizing Therapy Strong Hold Hairspray ($15.98, beautybrands.com) to hold the look. I prefer a firm hold to natural hold spray.”
