'I'm not sure if she's a girl who just got out of a car or a tornado in the Midwest,' joked the hairstylist Orlando Pita of the inspiration behind the blustery braids he created for the Michael Kors spring/summer 2015 fashion show this morning. 'The look is very disheveled, very earthy and sensual.' And super low-maintenance, as the plaits didn't require much prep work. 'It's the first show of the day, so the girls are coming in with really clean hair,' Pita noted. To build a tiny bit of grip and texture, he applied his Lift & Plump Volumizing Spray Mist followed by Schwarzkopf Osis+ Dust It mattifying powder, then started loosely braiding strands at the collarbone. 'The hair drapes over the shoulders so it seems like that's the length of the model's hair,' Pita explained. Next, he blasted on dry shampoo and pulled out layers around the face, curling them with an iron for a messy, windswept feel. The look's easy sophistication appealed to the model Maggie Rizer, who had just flown in from San Francisco, where she lives with her two toddler sons. 'I love it,' she said of the unkempt braid. 'It's how my hair looks most of the time, only Orlando does it better!'
