Get The Look: Embellished + Textured Half-Up Half-Down Hair

Designer: Cushnie et Ochs Fall/Winter 2015

Lead Hair Stylist: Antonio Corral Calero for Moroccanoil

The Scoop: Inspired by the contrasting textures found in space, the hair style showcases the duality of soft and strong—distinctly different, but undeniably connected. 

How To DIY A Embellished + Textured Half-Up Half-Down Hairstyle

  1. Starting with dry hair, lightly mist hair from mid lengths to ends with Moroccanoil Root Boost to give texture and soft definition.
  2. Create a deep side part and generously apply Moroccanoil Styling Gel directly to roots while smoothing hair down flat.
  3. Comb hair back off the face and tuck behind ears; secure with a bobby pin.
  4. Using large, 2” barrel curling iron, create slight bend at mid-lengths of hair for a loose piece-y wave.  The key is to keep the waves beach-y and soft to contrast the sleek sophistication of the lacquered wet look.
  5. For hold and strong division of the two hair textures, geometrically arrange bobby pins around back of head from ear-to-ear.
  6. Finish with an all over mist of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for lacquer like finish and strong, long-lasting hold.
