3-Step Transformation: From Pixie To Long & Lived-In

close formula

When you’re given the opportunity to master your craft and style alongside the industry’s top hairdressers, you just say yes! That was the case for 15 stylists who flew to NYC from all over the country for a week of Moroccanoil®️ education, styling backstage at New York Fashion Week and a photo shoot with, art directed by BTC Founder and Creative Director Mary Rector-Gable!


The stylists spent the day working with Moroccanoil®️ artists Kevin Hughes (@hairbyeleven), Robert Ham (@roberthamstylist) and Antonio Corral Calero (@antonioccalero) to create 17 on-trend “Instagram” looks for eight different models. Under Mary’s art direction, BTC was there to make the magic happen—from the creative vision and model casting to styling the wardrobe, makeup and final production!
