Moroccanoil Global Ambassador Antonio Corral Calero achieved this look by tapping into the DNA of the Temperley London woman. Translation? “She is fearless…exudes confidence, is playful and effortless. I wanted to create a soft rock ‘n’ roll, pulled-back look using fingers over tools with asymmetric vibes as if she did it herself.”
To recreate the look prep hair by applying treatment oil from root to tip using fingers. Part hair in the middle and apply styling cream. Lightly blow dry to help expand the hair. Section hair and using both hands, separate the hair back and forth with fingertips applying texture spray as you go. From the left-hand side, take the hair from the temple down, gathering in the sideburns, sweeping down to the occipital bone and to the right hand side. Bring off-centre and secure the two pieces into a ponytail with a clear elastic.
Enhance the rock ‘n’ roll vibe with loosened baby hairs around the sideburns and encouraging flyways’ around the temple. Apply texture spray to the root area for extra grip. Crown the hair with a thick velvet ribbon, approximately a foot in length; wrap over the head and behind the ears, under the ponytail, crisscross and bring back over the elastic and tie into an abstract bow. Cut ribbon-ends to a V shape.
