How to: Carolina Herrera’s vintage double rolls

The love for vintage is universal. The concept of something old will always have a huge following and will constantly serve as a source of inspiration for different designers. Timeless and elegant, the vintage style is what Orlando Pita of Orlo Salon used to create a stunning 2013 hairstyle for the Carolina Herrera autumn / winter 2013 show.

The Carolina Herrera collection is one that boasts of jewel tones and sophistication, so it’s only fitting that it’s paired with a hairstyle that exudes confidence and royalty. Working for Morrocanoil, Orlando created a vintage double roll look that is basically a hair twist with a sleek and modern vibe. As clean and swept up as it may look, it’s not very hard to do and you can recreate it for the next event you’ll be going to. Read on after the break for the complete how to.

How to: Carolina Herrera vintage double rolls

First things first, you will need to protect your hair by applying some heat protecting spray. For the Carolina Herrera show, Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection was used.
If you have thin hair, give some body to it by applying some volumizing mousse onto your hair. If you think your hair has enough volume then you can skip the product and just go on to the next step.
To get that sleek and modern look, blow dry your hair straight and then apply styling cream like Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to give your hair some sheen. Since the style is close to the head, apply a bit more of the cream at the top of your head.
Now it’s time to section your hair. Create a strong center part and then create three sections. The first two are the front part of your hair (one on each side) and the third starts behind your ear and all the way to the back. Make sure all sections start at the crown of your head all the way to the tips. You can use clips to secure and hold the sections as you go to the next step.
Tip: If you have thin hair you can backcomb your hair first about 2 inches from the crown before you proceed to creating the rolls.

Next step is to roll or twist your hair. Start with one section in front and roll it very tightly. Secure it with a pin behind the ear. Then take the remaining strands of the roll, twist it and make it cross to behind opposite ear where you’ll pin it. Do this again to the other front section of your hair. The crisscross section of the two front rolls will hold the back section of your hair.

Take the third and last section of your hair and raise it slightly above the nape. Roll your hair just like you did with the front two sections but roll it upwards and make sure that it’s a bit wider for contrast and a more dramatic effect. Tuck the rolled section in the crisscrossed front sections and secure it with pins.

To smooth out any fly away strands, take some more of your styling cream and apply it to the loose strands.
Finish your hairstyle by lightly misting on some hairspray to keep everything in place. For the show, Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray was used for extra shine.

While this look might require a bit more patience, it’s still something that you can do at home. It’s a hairstyle that will look great on almost anything. Whether you’re wearing a little black dress or a gorgeous gown, you simply can’t go wrong with this vintage double roll hairstyle.
