The Hair At Carolina Herrera Spring/Summer 2014

As always Carolina Hererra delivers an elegance with her latest collection that captivates even the most jaded among the fashion-weary flock at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

A few hours before the show began, my colleagues and I gathered around Orlando who did a demo of the look.

First we brushed and blow dried the hair, removing all knots and kinks. We then generously sprayed Spirulina Hair Spray thorough each model's hair.

To achieve the look, Orlando had us all do a side part...and in typical Orlando-style, he paid close attention making sure each head was perfect. That's one of the things I enjoy about working with him...his laser-like focus and attention to detail. We then back-combed the hair section by section.

Orlando advised us to use hairpins sparingly, so we could avoid unnecessary bumps or pulls.

Starting with the left side, we did our first twist, then moved to the right and did our next twist
Orlando mentioned that the idea was to simulate "...sea shells, the long ones that swirls."
And to avoid it looking too "classic," we created two little shell-like curls at the top of the twist.

In the end it was a beautiful, (hint - not easy to do) hairstyle that complimented Ms. Hererra's elegant designs.
