How To: Orlando Pita’s Horizontal 
Buns

For the Carolina Herrera Fall 2011 collections, Orlando Pita created these sleek horizontal 
buns to 
complement 
the 
graceful simplicity 
of this 
season’s 
luxurious clothes. 
“I wanted 
the hair to look special 
and 
different 
from 
what 
we’ve 
seen 
before, 
especially since 
it’s 
all 
about what 
happens at 
the back 
of the 
head,” Pita says. “For this season, I‘m feeling a strong move away from tousled, messy hair.” Fashion is definitely more dressed and polished and it’s dictating where hair is going. The looks are more controlled, healthy looking and shiny.”

How To Create Pita’s Horizontal 
Buns:

  • Orlando Pita dried the models’ hair using a hair dryer, Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream, and a round Moroccanoil Ceramic Ionic Brush. This created sleekness as well as added volume. “The Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream is great for that,” Pita says. “It makes the hair shiny and smooth but still gives it the right amount of hold and substance for updos.
  • For models whose hair was dry or damaged, Pita first applied Moroccanoil Treatment to restore the hair’s condition. “It absorbs right in.”
  • Pita then created a low part and pulls the hair back, letting one side sweep across the side of the face, making a small ponytail in the back. “I let strands hang down, then lifted them up, through and down, and attached it with pins at the fold. It looks tucked in, almost like an envelope,” Pita explains.
  • The style is finished with a light spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray to polish off the look and control any flyaways.

What do you think of Orlando Pita’s horizontal 
buns? Do you agree that the trend is moving away from messy/bedhead hair and toward dressy, polished looks?
