A fresh new 'do for spring

Never ceasing to be inspired by runway shows, I saw these pics from Miami Beach International Fashion Week and got excited for spring all over again. Even though it's supposed to snow today in NYC, I'm prepping my wardrobe and my hair for new ideas, and thought that this chignon look from Moroccanoil artistic director, Antonio Corral-Calero, would do just the trick. (And if these products could stand up to Miami humidity? I could certainly use them to tame my crazy curls for a day in the city.)

The look that Antonio created was a chignon in an interesting sea shell shape, inspired by one of his favorite artists, Julio Romero de Torres. Antonio started by using Moroccanoil Treatment and Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to hydrate the hair and prevent frizz. Hair was swept in to a side part and a large portion of hair over the ear was kept separate to form in to soft waves. The rest of the hair was pinned back in to the great chignon shapes, and then the separated waves were smoothed back over the ear and pinned in to the chignon.
I love the waves hanging down over the ear as this model is getting prepped. It feels very Kate Bosworth/California/fresh for spring!
