Backstage Beauty: Derek Lam, Hair by Orlando Pita

The inspiration behind the hair for Derek Lam was “bohemian minimalism.” The hair mimics the collection; it contains texture but is not shaped.

Here is how hairstylist Orlando Pita achieved these boho waves:

Braid hair into 8 to 10 braids all over the head (more or fewer depending on hair thickness). Run the T3 SinglePass Flat Iron over the braids and let them sit to cool.

Unbraid and brush out the hair with slight back-teasing (frizz is OK). Finish by parting hair in the middle, then pin behind both ears.
