Hair Style

Quick Fix ’Dos

Your fabulously styled hair CAN look enviably gorgeous for more than just a day—with a few simple tweaks, you can flaunt two great styles in just one hair wash! Let us show you how…

Finish by spraying a small quantity of a sea salt spray for some added texture.


Sleek Braided Ponytail

Comb all your hair back and pull it into a low ponytail, and pull in the braided section as well. Secure this with a       hairtie.

Corkscrew Curls
Start with freshly washed hair, coated thoroughly with a strong-hold curling cream.

Divide your hair into small sections and use a thin-barrelled curling tong to curl each section into tight ringlets.

Do not brush or comb the hair—let the tight ringlets stay as they are for this iconic look.

You can spritz a gloss spray on to give your hair some added shine.
