Orlando Pita created unique, intricate looks with bold graphic details inspired by Korean design at the Carolina Herrera Spring 2011 Show. To create the look he applied argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Light throughout dry hair to create a healthy looking frizz-free shine. Then Orlando create a deep side part, pulled hair back and sprayed with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray.

He then combed the hair again with a wide tooth comb, sprayed with hairspray and pulled the right side of the hair diagonally over left, and pinned the hair above the nape of the neck with a creative cluster of custom made “Hair-Barrettes” that matched the color of each model’s hair. These were pinned either horizontally or vertically to create dramatic graphic patterns.

The finished looks were sprayed once again with the hairspray and then finished with a misting of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray. “I love this hair style,” said Pita. “When Korean women dress, nothing is out of place and everything is beautifully thought out. My hair style is precise and graphic, with no loose or separate pieces. The hair barrettes…are strategically placed to make sure they completely hold every part of the look in place.”

Pita created two variations of the style, an updo as well as a longer pony-tailed effect.
