hehe, I don’t think my titles can get any lamer.
Or can they…?
Key Hairstylist: Nelson Vercher for Rita Hazan Salon
To get the look:
~Prep hair with Phytovolume Actif and Phyto Intense Volume Mousse applied to the root for volume and height.
~Rough-dry the hair, focusing on the roots for maximum volume.
~Separate strands into pin curls, allowing to set for at least 20 minutes.
~Take out pins and tease hair generously at the roots.
~Use a jumbo-barrel curling iron to fill out hair with loose waves.
~Smooth the look with a hairbrush.
The look was inspired by housewives of the late 60’s/early 70’s. I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan of the super fluffy volume displayed here. I do like her makeup, though!
Key Hairstylist: Sean James for PHYTO
To get the look:
~Mix Phyto Professional Fiber Paste and Phyto Professional Shine Defining Wax and work through hair for hold and shine – use fingertips, not a brush, for a “controlled undone” look.
~Finish with a light spray of Phyto Professional Workable Holding Spray.
~For shorter hair, finish with Phyto Professional Strong Sculpting Gel to set the hair.
This look was all about the messy, trendy hair of an urban guy. Man, does his hair look sleek and windblown! I’m a little bit jealous. The guy below has got the tousled thing going on:
Key Hairstylist: Bob Recine for PHYTO
To get the look:
~Prep the hair with Phytolaque Soie Spray, focusing on the nape of the neck to achieve a tight and smooth neckline.
~Make a first section with a center part, and a second section as a radius from ear to ear, at the axis of the crown. The key to this look is to get the two ponytails to create an X, so this section is diagonal.
~Keep a tiny diamond-shaped anchor disconnected at the front. This trick will keep the ponytail tight at the end. The anchor is positioned two fingers from the front hairline.
~Ponytail 1: pull the first ponytail from the front to the back. Spray Phyto Professional Workable Holding Spray to your brush, and brush both sides of the hair to the crown of the head. Hairspray on the brush keeps the lines clean, and achieves just the right dose of spray. Place the elastic deeply at the root for a tight ponytail. To accentuate the tightness, apply Phyto Professional Workable Holding Spray to the sides and comb hair to smooth and sculpt the lines cleanly.
~Ponytail 2: pull ponytail from the back to the front. After dividing at the neck with a center parting, direct the hair from the nape to the front of the head and secure the ponytail with the little anchor that was disconnected at the beginning. This little anchor helps prevent the ponytail to sag.
~Twist the free section of hair on top in a figure-8 formation. Use bobby pins to secure the formation and any loose ends.
~Finish with a pea-size amount of Phyto 7 on dark hair and Phyto 9 on light hair to hold down and soften the flyaways around the perimeter.
This hairstyle drew inspiration from the graphic lines of the VPL collection itself. This is something that I’d actually want to try myself. I’m liking the rounded lines of the hair.
And finally, speaking of hair, I’m planning on cutting my own hair really soon! By myself 😀 I’ve done my own sidebangs a bunch of times, but this time I’m going to cut all of it on my own, and layer it too. We’ll see how it goes~
