T3 Sponsors Orlando Pita for Derek Lam -- Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011

A Fabulous and Sophisticated Style for the Holidays

VENICE, CA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2010) - The 60s are enjoying a revival and the hairstyles from this decade will be a popular look from coast to coast this holiday season. Stylist Orlando Pita and high-end tool manufacturer, T3, show you how to get the 60s look, directly from Derek Lam's Spring/Summer 2011 Show. 

As detailed in the steps below and in the video, Orlando Pita, one of the world's most influential stylists, provides a backstage glimpse at New York's Fashion Week while explaining his inspiration, tools of choice, and how exactly to perfect this 60s style at home.

Orlando Pita on Fashion Week:
"The scene backstage at Fashion Week can vary quite a lot. There's a lot going on, there's lighting people, there's hair and make-up artists, it's a very busy scene," said Orlando Pita, world renowned hair stylist. "The look this season for Derek Lam's spring/summer 2011 show was inspired by the 60s, incorporating with it a modern, effortless and minimalist feel. It brings to mind California at that time -- easygoing, fun and warm," continued Pita.

How to Get the 60s Look:

Step 1: Section hair and start with bottom part. Blow dry using a barrel brush and T3 Featherweight Luxe dryer. Spray T3 + Orlando Pita Plump over the section on which you are working. While drying, keep the hair taut by rolling the brush at the ends. Blow hair out with the root going upwards and then curl the hair under to build maximum volume.

Step 2: Next, let down more hair, continue to blow dry spraying with Plump, using more at the crown to build volume (to create bump on rear of head). For more texture, spray T3 + Orlando Pita Elevate Volumizing spray all over hair and brush it out when finished. 

Orlando Pita Tip: As you're blow drying, do the top section first and then once you are done drying that area, roll it under like you have an invisible roller inside your hair and pin-it. Blow dry the rest of your hair, letting that section set which creates more volume. 

Step 3: Part hair down the middle-part only two inches deep from the front, keep these front pieces flat to frame the face. Blow dry the remaining pieces of hair back in order to obtain lift (see photo for final look).

Orlando Pita Tip:
The hairstyle is quite tight to the face so special attention should be placed on the front sections. Some types of hair will require additional smoothing to achieve this. Run the T3 SinglePass Straightening and Styling iron on that part of the hair, keeping it very flat, creating that 60s, hippie look.

Once you've created the style on yourself, select your favorite party dress and enjoy the Holiday celebration -- in style.
