Make-up/ Michael J’ann Robinson, Hair/Theresa Belloni
A great haircut allows you to style your hair many different ways, to suit your mood or the occasion! To give an example our stylist, Theresa Belloni, took a medium length haircut, with lots of layers, and styled it three different ways. By changing the products she used, and using different styling techniques, she was able to create three distinctly different looks. Make-up artist, Michael J’ann Robinson, completed each transformation by choosing a shade of lipstick that complimented each style.
Here is how Theresa created each hairstyle:
Look #1- Straight and Sleek
To achieve this look, Theresa added a moisturizing product, Oribe Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream, to the ends of the hair before blowing it out straight, using a large round brush. (She did not rough dry the hair first since she was not trying to achieve volume.) She flat ironed the hair lightly on the ends. Tip: NEVER flat iron hair that is not completely dry because the cuticle will be open and hair will get damaged by the direct heat.
Look #2- Beach Waves
Theresa applied Oribe Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse to the hair when it was still damp. She rough dried the hair while scrunching it with her hands (without a nozzle on the dryer). Afterwards, she took big diagonal sections of hair and then twisted them around a curling wand. She applied Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray before tousling the hair with her fingers.
Look #3- Romantic Waves
Theresa again applied some volumizing mousse before drying, and smoothing out the hair the hair, with a medium sized brush. She paid special attention to the crown of the head for volume. She then took small sections of hair and used a 1 1/4 inch curling iron to create the curls. (According to Theresa, “By using small sections of hair it is easier to create tighter waves. Curling bigger sections of hair creates a looser wave”). Once she was done curling the hair, she let it cool for one to two minutes before running her fingers through it to loosen up the curls. She then sprayed some Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray for the final touch in creating that bombshell look!
Thank you Theresa for these great hair styling tips!
