Inspiration For Caitlyn's Hair - Cindy Crawford
In a Vanity Fair Behind The Scene at Caitlyn's VF cover shoot prep, Grinnell revealed Oribe's inspiration for Caitlyn's cover hair.
Oribe was quoted as explaining "we looked to (Supermodel) Cindy Crawford's hair for inspiration, which is always glamourous but natural-looking."
Sexy Hair Was Key
Oribe, who consulted with Caitlyn about her hair before the shoot said "I wanted to create a glamorous look that I normally do for any woman, and sexuality was very important in this context."
Indeed, Oribe has been the hair master behind many of the most spectacular magazine cover shoots for many years.
Oribe's Iconic Hair Products
Caitlyn had one of the world's most Internationally famous celebrity hairstylists to design and create her glam cover hair. To guarantee the very best results, Oribe used his amazing eponymous hair care line.
Oribe's Dry Texturizing Spray was utilized to amp up Caitlyn's sexy volume.
Oribe's Signature Royall Blowout Heat Styling Spray was used to add spectacular shine and softness.
Caitlyn's Hair Extensions
When I saw the announcement about Vanity Fair's 22-page cover story (hitting new stands on June 9th) featuring Annie Leibovitz' photos of Caitlyn Jenner, my thoughts immediately wondered about her hair.
Caitlyn is a 65 year old woman who is now showcasing a head of thick, luscious milk chocolate ombré faded tresses with lots of sexy volume throughout the roots.
During her now-famous two-hour 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer April 24th, the former 65 year old Bruce had much shorter hair than Caitlyn's Vanity Fair cover.
On 20/20 Bruce's hair was noticeably much thinner throughout the length with significantly less root lift or volume.
Hollywood Hairdresser Robert Hallowell Weighs In
One of the reasons I completely trust Hollywood hairstylist Robert Hallowell is because he never betrays any of the secrets of his very famous celerity clients.
Nor does he ever gossip. I love him for his professional integrity and have always felt 100% safe with him during the 10+ years I've worked with him on various hair projects.
Did Caitlyn's Hair Grow Overnight Or Was She Wearing Extensions?
I knew Robert would have his own opinions about how Caitlyn's hair was transformed from the Bruce Jenner's Diane Sawyer Interview hair to the long, lush, volume infused tresses on the VF cover.
Robert told me "Caitlyn probably had fusion hair extensions added to her hair to give it length and volume."
He said "in addition to the extensions, she was most likely wearing a lace front wig."
Robert noted "they probably used a combination of different types of hair to achieve the final result."
Oribe Left A Care Package For Caitlyn's Hair And Extensions
In Vanity Fair Behind The Scene it was revealed Oribe left Caitlyn "with a care package (Oribe Masque, Oribe Shampoo & Conditioner) for maintaining her hair and extensions.
Would Caitlyn still have as much volume, lift and length for everyday events?
It all depends upon whether she will continue to wear a lace front piece along with her extensions, or will go with just the extensions.
Or maybe Caitlyn will shed all the add-on hair and go with her natural hair.
Robert pointed out "hair created for the cover models for major magazine is often much more glamourous and volume enhanced than for non-cover shoots."
As Caitlyn's looks continue to evolve it will be interesting to see how she wears her hair in her daily life.
