Starting at this morning, we knew we were in for a treat with the Carolina Herrera Spring/Summer 2015 runway show here at New York Fashion Week.This season’s clothing line embodied a strong sense of Japanese shapes and style with a modern twist.Orlando followed suit and presented us with a new masterpiece to create to complement the collection and the Biosilk Hair products to help achieve it. And boy…it took some strength to deliver his vision. As usual with his guidance we got it!!!
Great show Carolina Herrera!
This pretty much sums up yesterday’s show at DVF…
Diane Von Furstenberg stood on a chair, just minutes before her runway show began and addressed all the models, “Ladies, you’re beautiful and confident….so smile, smile!”Orlando Pita created a hairstyle that was based on Bridget Bardot, a sexy, inspired style with a twist!!
We blow dried each model’s hair and then set it with a curling iron. The magic is really in the way the brush is handled and the products are used. Thanks to Biosilk!!
Below are some images to give you the real effect of yesterday’s show. Don't forget to follow orlandopita on instagram!!!
Is your “volumizing” product getting you down? Does it smell too much of alcohol or leave your hair with a sticky feeling, making it difficult to comb through?
Well I recommend Orlando Pita’s Lift & Plump Volumizing Spray Mist (Professional Salon Quality). A product that truly works, it's affordable, smells pleasant and does not leave hair a sticky mess. I use this on all my clients who need volume and texture.
I’m tired of magazines that recommend both the high-end product and then a sub-standard version that’s cheaper or more “affordable.” This product appeals to every budget and is used across the board both professionally and for at-home use. What can I say…Lift & Plump is all-inclusive!
Here are my personal tips on how to best apply Orlando’s latest hair product.
First, I spray the mist to a section of hair at the root, blow dry it, then apply it to the next section. However, if you have lots of hair you can spray this mist throughout instead of just applying as you go.
For a more textured look for long to medium-length hair (that’s also thick), here's my recommendation. Once I’ve finished blow drying everything, I lightly mist the product on each section. Then I twist those sections using the heat from my fingers. It roughs up the finish a bit. For added volume after drying, I sometimes turn a client’s head upside down and rough dry. But only if it's appropriate for the finish I'm aiming for.It's important to remember when you are using any volume-enhancing product, to apply the product at the root and spend enough time drying the root area. Don't spend all your time drying the ends…drying the root area is vital to getting volume.
