Orlando Pita, Straight Shooter
Orlando Pita is over glamorous waves. That’s right; the hairstylist and backstage regular is tired of seeing celebrities walk the runway with loose ringlets and is taking a stand by bringing pin-straight tresses back to the runway. “If you see something for five years, it’s time to move on,” he told us at Carolina Herrera yesterday, where he parted ways with the updos he typically does at the show. Instead, Pita prepped hair with MoroccanOil Hydrating Styling Cream before blowing it dry, then created deep side parts and nourished the ends with its argan oil treatment so the result was sleek, but not severe. Pita appears to be a man of his word, too. When we ran into him again at Derek Lam this morning, he was still extolling the virtues of staying on the straight and narrow and took a moment to show us how to get the same look with a little natural texture: Pull a section of hair straight back away from your head, coat it with hair spray, hit it with a few bursts of the blow-dryer, and repeat, finger-combing along the way. Consider retiring your curling iron for fall.
