Carolina Herrera by Orlando Pita for BioSilk Hair Care

Carolina Herrera presented her Spring/Summer 2015 Collection with hair by Orlando Pita for BioSilk Hair Care. Carolina Herrera is a Venezuelan-American fashion designer known for "exceptional personal style", and dressing First Ladies from Jacqueline Onassis to Michelle Obama. Orlando Pita was inspired to create a Japanese “Sumo Knot” because of the collection’s Japanese influence, large floral prints and strong silhouette. Since the hairstyle also reflects the same strong silhouette, he adapted the look to be a more womanly, high-fashion and feminine take on the sumo wrestler style.

"This is a style that is highly recommended for professionals only to execute on clients for special events. The look also provides you to create variations making it look unique or to fit the clients’ personality.” - Orlando Pita 

 
Get The Look!
 
1. Apply a generous amount of BioSilk Firm Hold Hairspray to a brush and the hair, using it to sculpt the hair into a sleek ponytail with a large CHI Turbo Nylon Brush that is placed 2 inches below the crown area. Secure the ponytail with a band.
 
"If the models hair had texture or curl, I blow dried it straight first with the CHI TOUCH Touchscreen Blow Dryer."
 Orlando Pita
 
2. Run the CHI G2 Ceramic & Titanium Digital Hairstyling Iron through the length of the ponytail so it is sleek and smooth.
 
3. Spray a generous amount of BioSilk Firm Hold Hairspray onto the length of the ponytail and while damp take a tail comb and the CHI G2 Ceramic & Titanium Digital Hairstyling Iron to gently fold the ponytail in half to form an off-center looped bun shape while bringing the remaining hair down the center to form a tail and secure with an elastic band.
 
The tail comb and BioSilk Firm Hold Hairspray are essential to shape, mold and bend the hair into a loop. This is the most intricate part of the style.
The ideal component of the BioSilk Firm Hold Hairspray is that it gives hold while still letting the hair to remain flexible."
Orlando Pita
 
4. To create the ultra-sleek tail and add length to the style, use an extension sprayed with BioSilk Firm Hold Hairspray and straightened with the CHI G2 Ceramic & Titanium Digital Hairstyling Iron. Cut the ends on a sharp angle and attach under the loop blending it over the existing tail and secure with pins.
 
5. Take a separate piece of extension about 2-3” in width spray it with BioSilk Firm Hold Hairspray and straighten with the CHI G2 Ceramic & Titanium Digital Hairstyling Iron to form a ribbon-like piece. Wrap around the elastic band to hide it.
 
6. Apply BioSilk Shine On Spray to complete the look!
