Sophisticate’s Blog:         Runway Hair


What’s better than gorgeous hair? Gorgeous hair with fierce fashion of course and that’s exactly what the Rachel Zoe Spring/Summer 2014 Collection delivered at New York Fashion Week. Here, mane master and Moroccanoil Artistic Director Antonio Corral Calero, dishes on how he created these fabulous, runway-ready styles…

The Inspiration:
For Spring/Summer 2014, Rachel Zoe takes the modern jetset girl on a safari; a traveling muse wearing her femininity with effortless confidence. This collection offers a new take on exotic glamour, incorporating ethereal elements, polished silhouettes, innovative materials, and blending of the classic with the contemporary.

The Hair Look:
For The Rachel Zoe Collection for Spring/Summer 2014, runway stylist Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil Artistic Director, created soft textured, ethereal hair looks that were inspired by windswept safari days and subtle tribal details.

Corral Calero created a deconstructed modern take on the braid, with a contrasting and overlapping tangled textural effect that looked as if hair was styled on-the-go and blown free, loose and waved by the elements. The look was achieved by taking random parts of pre-textured strands, crisscrossing them (like macramé) and tucking them into the back and inside of a low braid.

The Creation:
√ “I started with a foundation of Moroccanoil Treatment on dry hair to condition, strengthen and smooth, then sprayed root boost at the roots starting at the nape, and working up). Also, applying Moroccanoil Treatment on dry hair gave me more traction and grip for the other products that followed.”

Screen shot 2013-09-18 at 1.43.34 PM√ “Molding cream was next. Warming a bit between my fingers, I worked it in from roots to ends. This was a key product for the look, giving it the right semi-matte texture with enough shine. It was important for the hair to look healthy, not too dry.”

 “I then blow dried the hair from underneath and lifted hair at the roots using my fingers, letting it dance and tangle under the air flow. It was important not to pull or try to control the hair.”

 “When almost dry, and with model’s head bent over, I finger-massaged the hair at the root and lifted it again to intensify the tangled texture.”

√ “I then sectioned the hair from ear to ear and pinned it up while I created a braid with remaining strands at the nape of the neck.”

Screen shot 2013-09-18 at 1.43.49 PM “I released the top hair and then tucked different parts of the various strands into the braid like macramé and blended them in waves, creating a loose, inverse-pyramid shape that was wider on top.”

 “Then I softly rotated my palm over the hair to make it lie naturally–creating more flyaways at the top.”

 “To add a tribal vibe, I made several little braids placed randomly at the sides.”

 “Finally, I took little baby hairs around the hairline and pulled them out – so they would also move as models walked the runway.”
