Curly Chic + Lotus Design

How to do it

Hair: This can be done on long, thick and straight hair. Prepare hair using thermal protection spray. Then create fine curls with a slim thermal rod, taking fine sections of hair from the nape working up to the hairline. Section the hair along the hairline (as in the image) and twist and secure it with pins.

Make-up: The make-up is subtle and natural. This is to enhance the very contemporary lotus design created on the forehead, using an airbrush and stencil. The gold lotus design can also be done on the lips.

Back Beauty + Flower Power

How to do it

Hair: Prepare your hair with thermal protection spray. Then create a wavy look in the hair using the 3-barrel thermal tongs, working from the nape upto the forehead. Back-comb your hair slightly at the roots; gather them together without using a comb and secure with a pin.

Make-up: The make-up is subtle and natural here to enhance the floral design. Separate the petals of a flower and carefully and patiently glue them to the skin, using the eyelash glue.
