Julia Telles: Golden Globes 2015

The Golden Globes are always a glamorous affair with many different hair styles. This year I had the pleasure of working with Julia Telles, for her look I pulled inspiration from Old Hollywood Glam.

To achieve the glam waves:
1. Take a one inch section of hair and use your Beachwaver for the curls.
2. Roll each section up and pin in place.
3. Repeat until all of your hair is set.
4. After letting the curls set and cool, spray flexible hairspray on the On Set Styling Brush and brush into an S shape.
5. Style smoothly and tuck one side behind the ear for the finishing touch. 

Julia looked stunning in her Carmen Marc Valvo gown for the awards ceremony. Congratulations to the cast of The Affair on their wins of the night! 

Another great trip full of memories and fabulous hairstyles, until next time!

HALLOWEEN: Fiesty Feline

 

We took the classic cat costume and put a spin on it by using the Beachwaver Pro, Wrap Up and fun faux leather cat ears!

Step 1: First, part your hair by sectioning it right down the center of your head with a Darby Clip and secure that section into a ponytail.

Step 2: Using the Wrap Up, create a bun at the top of your head.

Step 3: Gather up the rest of your hair into a pony tail right underneath the bun.

Step 4: Curl the ponytail with the Beachwaver Pro and allow the curls to cool.

Step 5: Lastly, twist your ponytail into one big curl.


 
 

HALLOWEEN: BEAUTIFUL BUNNY

Hop into Halloween with this cute bunny look using these pink and white sequin bunny ears, which also comes with a fluffy cotton tail from Icing.

Step 1: Start by using the Beachwaver Pro to curl your hair into tight curls.

Step 2: After your curls have completely cooled, use a comb to tease your hair starting at the roots and working your way out.

Step 3: Spray your locks with a flexible hold hairspray, we always suggest Aussie's Sprunch Spray and you're all set!
