A Pillow: One Pro’s Secret to Runway-Worthy Waves

In stead of firing up curling wands or flatirons, Orlando Pita’s instructions to models the night before Michael Kors’ Fall ’15 showwere simple: “Go to bed with hair clean and damp so you get that strange wave, lift in weird parts, and wrinkles in the hair.” The effect was “loosely inspired by” Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, who was “always really well put-together, but never put a brush to her head,” explained the pro. His intention, he added, was to create a texture that a pillow—not a hairdresser—might produce. And it appears the lesson in undone beauty was not lost on Natasha Poly. The catwalker, who opened Kors’ show, clearly understands the power that sleep (and a monogrammed pillowcase) can have on one’s hair—just look at her pre-lights-out waves for proof.
