Look One

Using a medium sized round brush this look was created by power drying a light hold volume spray on damp hair (Schwarzkopf Osis Hair Body $23.17). Once you’ve created a light hold round brush blow dry, follow by spritzing a heat protectant spray (like Schwarzkopf’s Osis flatliner $23.17) and apply Cloud Nine styling irons, for a smooth texture and rounding the edges in for a polished result. Finish Using a light hairspray (Schwarzkopf’s Osis elastic $19.16) and shine spray (Schwarzkopf Osis Sparkler $19.16).

Using a strong hold mousse (Schwarzkopf Osis Grip $23.17), apply to damp hair and power dry in. Then using a small curling tong start at the nape and work your way up the head, securing along the way with pin curl clips. Set by using a strong hold hairspray (Schwarzkopf Osis Session $19.16). Once set, release pin curl clips for a soft, yet structured curl.

Using a strong hold mousse, power dry into hair. Use a medium round brush and create a smooth lift and volume through the roots. Once done, use Cloud Nine hot rollers in a brick lay pattern starting from the parting on the forehead. Once the roller shape is achieved, take rollers out, slightly smooth out side fringe and loosely place curls in a soft and structured manner. Secure with a flexible hold hairspray (Schwarzkopf Osis Elastic $19.16).

Look Four

A modern version of the classic finger waves. Starting with damp hair apply a golf ball size of strong hold mousse, and using a large paddle brush apply a wrap dry technique. Once dry starting at the nape use a medium size curling tong. Wrap hair around tong, with a strong tension. Be careful not to twist or create ‘fish hooks’. Once finished comb out using a mason Pearson styling brush, brushing right from roots to ends, using a shine spray to avoid and smooth away any fly-aways. Once desired look is achieved, secure the mid length and ends of hair with bobby & fringe pins. Seal finished look with a strong hold hairspray (Schwarzkopf Osis Grip $23.17).

I'm a beauty fanatic and have worked in the industry for 5 years. The combination of my Architecture and Business Degree means I'm a sucker for packaging BUT stay loyal to products that perform. The creative element of new and emerging brands pulls me in, but the effectiveness is what I rave to my friends (and you) about. In my spare time, I'm either 'Nettflixing' or at the beach with my puppy.
