Monique Lhuillier Bridal Fall / Winter 2014. Moroccanoil #bridal #Moroccanoil

Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 Bridal Collection

Hair Design by Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil® Artistic Director

The Designer’s Inspiration

“Fall 2014: Welcome to my secret garden… My fall bridal collection celebrates romance with an heirloom quality. Femininity and sensuality runs throughout the collection. The fabrics are layers of tulle with an array of signature lace details. Embroideries are delicate in floral, lattice and vine motifs, colored in antique silver and rose-gold threadwork inspired by the timelessness of our secret garden. Silhouettes are molded with billowing skirts to bring out the goddess in our bride this season.”  – Monique Lhuillier

The Hair Looks

Runway stylist Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil Artistic Director, was inspired by the timeless beauty and poetry of the secret garden. Designing six different variations of braided looks Corral Calero created elegant feminine, romantic looks with an intriguing modern matte-texture.

“We wanted the girls to look like themselves, wearing updos with a romantic, soft and whimsical mood,” said Antonio. “The attention was on the matte texture of the hair and the intricate details of each braided bun, parted side or center, with minimal volume on top.”

How the Looks Were Created

Foundation

  • “First, I applied Moroccanoil Treatment from mid-length to ends.”
  • “Then, I sprayed new Root Boost throughout the entire head and began blow-drying while using my fingers to lift, detangle and separate strands.”
  • “To help detangle the hair while blow-drying I used a Moroccanoil Classic Boar Bristle Brush.”
  • “Once I made sure that the hair was entirely dry, I applied new Moroccanoil Molding Cream to provide additional texture, especially at the crown.”

First Look: http://www.ahprgroup.com/moroccanoil/events/bridal/fw14/ml-l1/

  • “To begin, I combed all the hair towards the back of the head."
  • “I then created three large parts: right, left and back.”
  • “Each of the three parts became a braid. The right and left sides were inward French braids and the back braid between them was a standard braid, which would serve as the base for the chignon.”
  • “I pulled the left and right braids around the back of the head and then wrapped them several times around the back braid. They wrapped about halfway down the back braid.”
  • “I pinned the bottom part of the braid inwards, towards the nape, and created the chignon.”
  • “To give the chignon a more romantic and uneven look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid slightly within the chignon.”

Second Look: http://www.ahprgroup.com/moroccanoil/events/bridal/fw14/ml-l2/

  • "First, I parted the hair to the side."
  • "Next, I divided the hair into three parts: right, left and back."
  • "Each of the three parts became a braid. The right and left sides were inward French braids and the back braid between them was a standard braid, which would serve as the base for the chignon."
  • "I pulled the left and right braids around the back of the head and then wrapped them several times around the back braid. They wrapped about halfway down the back braid."
  • "I pinned the bottom part of the braid inwards, towards the nape, and created the chignon."
  • "To give the chignon a more romantic and uneven look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid slightly within the chignon."

Third Look: http://www.ahprgroup.com/moroccanoil/events/bridal/fw14/ml-l3/

  • "For this look, I combed all of the model’s hair towards the back and used Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray Medium to help control and eliminate fly-aways close to her face."

"Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray Medium is the perfect tool for this look: it gives the right amount of hold to keep the hair in place, and leaves it looking beautiful with natural shine."

  • "Next, I divided the hair into three parts: right, left and back."
  • "Each of the three parts became a braid. All were standard braids, which would serve as the base for the chignon."
  • "I crossed the right braid with the left towards the back of her head, and clipped it into place."
  • "Then, I took the back braid and twisted it towards the outside, rolling it towards the crown. I used clips on all three braids at the bottom of the chignon, to hide the ends."
  • "As a final step, to give the chignon a less tight, more romantic and slightly uneven look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid slightly within the chignon."

Fourth Look: http://www.ahprgroup.com/moroccanoil/events/bridal/fw14/ml-l4/

  • "For the fourth look, I combed all the hair towards the back of the head and used Moroccanoil Luminous Hair Spray Medium to help control and eliminate fly-aways close to her face."
  • "Next, I divided the hair into three parts: right, left and back."
  • "Each of the three parts became a braid. The right and left were lace braids. The back (middle) braid was a standard braid, which would serve as the base for the chignon."
  • "I pulled the left and right braids around the back of the head and then wrapped them several times around the back braid. They wrapped about halfway down the back braid."
  • "I pinned the bottom part of the braid inwards, towards the nape, and created the chignon."
  • "To give the chignon a less tight, more romantic and slightly uneven look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid slightly within the chignon."

Fifth Look: http://www.ahprgroup.com/moroccanoil/events/bridal/fw14/ml-l5/

  • "I began by parting the model’s hair to the side."
  • "Then, I divided her hair into three parts: right, left and back."
  • "I created two braids: one on the right and another on the left. One was a regular braid, and the other a French braid."
  • "The back (middle) part was turned into a ponytail, which I back-combed slightly."
  • "The right braid was crossed with the left, towards the back in a circular motion around the back braid until mid-ponytail."
  • "Next, I pinned the bottom part of the braid inwards, towards the nape to create the chignon."
  • "As a final step, to give the chignon a less tight, more romantic look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid within the chignon."

Sixth Look: http://www.ahprgroup.com/moroccanoil/events/bridal/fw14/ml-l6/

  • "To create the final look I began by combing all of the model’s hair towards the back of her head. I used Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium to control any fly-aways close to her face."
  • "Next, I divided her hair into three parts: right, left and back."
  • "The right and left parts were turned into feather braids. The back (middle) part was turned into a slightly back-combed ponytail."
  • "I then crossed the right braid with the left towards the back of the head, circling the back part until mid-ponytail."
  • "Next, the bottom part of the braid and ponytail were pinned inwards towards the nape to create the chignon."
  • "As a final step, to give the chignon a less tight, more romantic look, I gently pulled and opened elements of each braid within the chignon."
