Local hair stylists keep touting Moroccanoil hair products. I haven’t used the brand, but perhaps I’ll give it a try.

I just got an e-mail detailing actress Holly Hunter’s hairstyle for the Emmy Awards. And Moroccanoil products were used to achieve the look.

Star stylist Enzo Angileri who created the look, was inspired by the glamorous metallic sheen of her gown. He created a rich texture emphasized by intense waves, smoothness, and shine. “I wanted her to look glamorous and goddess-like,” said Angileri, “and the hair had to look luminous.”

“Holly’s hair and color is beautiful,” Angileri said, “and I wanted to bring out its deep gold and honey tones for the cameras. Shine was everything in this look since the highlights wouldn’t be at all visible in hair that was not shiny enough to reflect the light — especially on camera and in photos.

Angileri first enriched, smoothed and defined the texture of her hair with argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream applied before blowdrying.

“This gave me a great start because the hair immediately looked moisturized and healthy, and had the hold to be styled,” Angileri said. “I blow dried it without a brush, and the shine and texture I achieved with this product alone was incredible.”

Next Angileri used a small 3/4-inch curling iron all over the head to create relaxed natural looking waves. Afterwards, he asked her to share her hair upside down, then sprayed Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray throughout the strands. “I didn’t use hairspray because I wanted the look to be as soft as possible and to be free to fall sensuously forward on her face.”
