Get the look: Moroccanoil’s Peter Gray for Badgley Mischka S/S 14

Chic seaside glamour, above and below the water, captured the imagination of Badgley Mischka at New York Fashion Week this year and Moroccanoil runway stylist Peter Gray was given the job of creating a killer hair look to match this brief. Jacque Henri Lartigue's black and white seaside photography of the 20s and 30s met the designer's pastel take on evening looks inspired by modern mermaids, and Gray lent an equally clear modern vision to proceedings. The elegant styles highlight smoother, softer waves, flattering textured hair rolls across the nape of the neck, and a sophisticated contrast of glossy (top and side waves) and dry/semi-matte textures (on the hair rolls).

How the Look Was Created:
1. “I started with a small hidden horizontal braid at the nape of the neck to serve as a base for pinning the rolled hair in place.”
2. “I then applied a small amount of Moroccanoil Treatment Light mid length to ends as the foundation for styling, and followed with the new Moroccanoil Root Boost (available in 2014) sprayed in and combed through section by section. Moroccanoil Treatment helps condition and smooth the hair and protect it from the heat of the curling irons.
3. "Next I used Moroccanoil Root Boost (available in 2014) to push the hair away from the scalp to ensure a three dimensional wave. It creates a semi-matte look and helps to create texture on the ends.”
4. “After rough drying the hair, I used Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong and set the hair using a 1-1/2” curling iron from nape to above the ear and pinned the curls vertically in opposite directions to create a soft textured movement. The hair through the front and sides was set vertically in the same direction and clipped.”
5. “I then combed out each section followed by a skinny brush, to create a smooth, glossy surface through the top and front wave area.”
6. “I rolled the hair lengths into a small, loose horizontal roll at the nape of the neck and used u-pins to attach the length of roll to the braided base underneath.”
7. “Finally, I sprayed a bit of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray on my palms and applied to the surface of the hair for a glossy finish on the top and sides.”
