Hair: James Pecis for Moroccanoil

Supermodel Kate Moss bares all in the much-discussed December 2012 issue of Vanity Fair. Moss’ hair looks for the cover shoot were styled by renowned hair stylist James Pecis for Moroccanoil, who was inspired by a picture of Madonna as a child, creating a polished look with a '60s flare.

"I started by using Moroccanoil Treatment from mid hair to ends to help strengthen and revitalize her lightened hair," Pecis says.

Next, Pecis applied new Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse at the roots and middle of the hair to create natural-looking volume. "After brushing the mousse through, I blow-dried Kate’s hair section by section with a round brush to achieve maximum volume and smoothness," Pecis says. "I pinned each section after blow-drying so that it could cool and set the wave."

To finish the look, Pecis brushed the hair out and backcombed the roots at the crown. "I then sprayed the look with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong for beautiful, healthy-looking hold that would last through Kate’s entire shoot.”
