I don’t know about you, but I LOVE watching the awards shows each season. Well, that’s not exactly true – what really catches my interest is the Red Carpet! I get all comfy on the couch with a sketch pad and pencil at the ready to capture the hair and makeup “Look” of the season. Well, I have to say, the 2011 CMA Awards did not disappoint and one theme seemed to resonate louder than the rest as my hand sketched. Over and over the gorgeous ladies of Country wore long, flowing, luscious locks that cascaded past their shoulders oozing femininity.
This trend is hitting at just the right time for Winter Brides. With the weather in-check anyone can get away with a down do. So what’s the trick to getting long lasting waves for your Big Day? Follow the DIY steps below and rejoice in the season – ‘let it flow‘… :)
1. Wash and dry your hair using Paul Mitchel Sculpting Foam and a round brush
2. Heat up hot rollers while you section your hair into four sections: 2 side, 1 top, 1 back
3. Beginning at the bottom of the back section, wrap hair with medium rollers (small if there are only 2 sizes)
4. Next, starting at the front of the top section (by forehead) wrap hair towards the back of head in large rollers – this will look like a mohawk
5. Then proceed and wrap each side with large rollers so that the rollers face down towards the shoulder.
After 2 hours gently ‘drop’ the rollers working from the bottom to the top, spray a mist of Sebastian Shaper Plus on each row.
Flip your head upside down and shake, shake, shake. Flip forward and tweak in the mirror. If the curls are too structured flip over again and gently pull your fingers from scalp to ends, flip forward, tweak again and spray with Sebastian Fierce. Voila! No teasing needed. Pin in your veil and go get married!!
