Moroccanoil artist James Pecis was lead stylist for the Just Cavalli show during 2013 Autumn/Winter Milan Fashion Week. The brilliant and colorful fabrics at Just Cavalli reflected the exotic beauty of the Southeast Asian country of Bhutan. The contemporary cuts of the fashions contrasted with the rich, traditional palettes.

“I wanted to create a look that fully reflected the Just Cavalli collection,” says Pecis. “Straight and more rigid on top, the hair falls in soft flowing waves, sexy and incredibly feminine for the catwalk.”

The luxurious style was a perfect complement to each model’s lush, bold fashions.

A deep part at the top of the head divided the hair into two large sections. “I sprayed each section generously with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium to add flexible hold and body to the style. I wanted soft deep waves that were very feminine, yet at the same time, giving off an edgy sexier look,” Pecis says.

I completed the look with Moroccanoil Treatment light to reduce flyaways and give the hair a healthy looking finish, followed by a touch of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine," says Pecis.

Maggie Mulhern | February 9, 2017

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
