jennifer lawrence beach

It's a huge trend in special occasion hair right now to use your natural texture, and this upsweep on Jennifer Lawrence does just that! We can also see ourselves turning this into a summer hair staple. This style is going to be easiest if you already have a natural wave in your hair, but don't worry you can always fake it too!
1. On damp hair spray Bb. Prep all over hair, smooth Bb. Hairdressers Oil through your ends and spritz some Bb. Surf Spray throughout your hair for added texture.
2. Dry hair with a diffuser (or let air dry) to encourage natural texture. If you don't have natural waves create curls with a curling iron.
3. Once hair is dry, loosely gather your hair at the nape of your neck and secure with a hairband. Twist into a loose messy bun.
4. Pull at hair to loosen and allow random pieces of hair around the hairline to fall free to create softness.

Amy Adams Chignon Tutorial

We saw a lot retro 50's chignons and french twists on the red carpet, one of our favorites was Amy Adams. She wore it beautifully with a touch of 1950's glamour but it still looked modern and classic. The great thing about this style is it doesn't need to be too stiff or perfect, which means it's going to work best on dirty/second-day hair. 
1. On second-day hair spray Bb. Hair Powder through hair to soak up oils, give the hair grip and a matte texture.
2. Backcomb your hair at the roots, especially at the crown. Spray with Spray de Mode Hairspray.
3. Part hair in the middle (or wherever you prefer) and smooth the crown back.
4. Smooth the hair back to the nape and secure with a ponytail. Backcomb the ponytail and spritz with more Spray de Mode Hairspray. 
5. Roll the hair into a messy chignon (letting some of the backcombing show) and pin in place with bobbies. Tuck the tail under and secure with more bobbies. 
6. Pull a few pieces out around the face and finish with Spray de Mode Hairspray.

Thickening Creme Contour

A dense, pliable shaping creme melts in hands to a delicate lightweight paste to create hi-definition silhouettes.
Great for all hair types and textures, especially fine. Appropriate for use on color treated hair.
Use after styling, for finishing on dry hair.
Melt a small amount in palms and smooth through dry hair to create contours and shape full styles. Use on mostly dry hair to define and shape shorter cuts.

All you fine-hair ladies out there will LOVE this product! As stylists with fine hair we have always been picky with our finishing products, they always seem to deflate the volume we just worked so hard to get! Creme Contour does the opposite of that, it's so light it and airy it seems to add to your volume. A magical product indeed!

    We have instantly fallen in love with this Mousse! It's lightweight, yet gives amazing hold and volume and NO crunchiness! We know you will love it too!
