Inspiration from the Designer:

This look was inspired by the alluring elegance of 1940’s American film star, Veronica Lake.

The Hair Look:

For the highly anticipated Suzanne Rogers presents Zac Posen Fashion Show, the first event Zac Posen runway show in Canada, Antonio Corral Calero for Moroccanoil® mimicked the “peek a boo curl”, Veronica Lake’s signature hairstyle – soft but structured flowing curls. “We wanted to create a hairstyle reminiscent of Old Hollywood with a contemporary twist” said Calero. “This look was the true depiction of timeless feminine elegance.”



How the Look Was Created:

  • “I started by prepping dry hair with Moroccanoil Light throughout the mid-lengths of hair followed by Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to keep hair hydrated and improve elasticity.”
  • “I saturated the hair with Moroccanoil Root Boost, from roots to ends.”
  • Next, I blow-dried the hair using my fingertips to lift pieces and create volume.”
  • “I then created a deep left side part using the arch of the eyebrow as a guideline to determine the depth of the part.”
  • “Using a 1 ¼ inch curling iron, I set all strands of the hair (on the base of the iron), taking horizontal sections.”
  • “Then, spraying each section with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong I curled pieces toward the face, and pinned in place to cool, “brick-laying the sections at the back of the head.”
  • “I brushed out the curls to create a softer look using the Moroccanoil Boar Bristle Classic Brush moving behind the ears and forming a more defined wave on the heavier side of the hair part.”
  • “I finished with a spray of Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong to keep strands in place.
