I often get asked how I style my hair and how to get the “look”. Well I wish I could say “I woke up like this” but sadly I am not Beyonce – it’s not that easy. But it certainly isn’t difficult either! For starters, a great haircut is key to any style. When my strands are limp and out of shape I know it’s time for a good trim! If you haven’t had a fresh cut in the last 3 months it’s definitely time to do so!
I usually start out with a leave-in conditioner (Bumble & Bumble’s Prep, Tonic or Invisible Oil Primer), root lift (Bumble & Bumble Thickening Hairspray) and some sort of oil for heat protection (Bumble&Bumble’s Invisible Oil, made with 6 different oils for that ultimate protection). The oil is strictly meant for your ends, not on your roots! I always find hand drying your hair until it’s about 80% dry is the best way to go.
Then smoothing it all out with a round brush for shine and finish. From here I love using Bumble & Bumble’s Does It All hairspray. This hairspray is specifically meant for styling so it helps hold your curls for all day wear.
Next with a 1.5 inch barrel curling iron I take 1-2 inch sections and curl away from my face on both sides. The easiest way for me to curl my hair is to start by parting it down the middle in the back.This ensures that you get everything curled and don’t leave anyone out back there. For long hair a 1.5 inch barrel curling iron works great but for hair that doesn’t hold curl well or is a short to medium length a 1.25 inch barrel curling iron might better suit you.
And to top off our best style out yet try using Bumble & Bumble’s DrySpun Finish. It gives you airy texture and volume instantly! Because no one wants flat lifeless hair. Voila! For more styling tips feel free to stop by the salon anytime! Cheers!
