Get the Look with Garnier: Soft, Feminine Waves
If you made it to Garnier Fructis‘ Blow Out Bar and Style Station this past weekend, you know that the Garnier team really knows how to pamper a gal – from the free styling appointments to gifting participants with a bounty of samples. And if you missed it, I’ve got a couple takeaways for you to recreate one of the featured looks at home. And don’t fret – all the products used are totally affordable, are safe to use on the regular, and smell fantastic.
I’ll admit, I’m lazy when it comes to doing my hair. My routine is usually to leave it as it is (straight and as shown in this before photo) – not a drop of product or exposure to an iron. But special occasions call for something a little different, no? Stylist Bradley Irion created a soft, lovely look on me that I wish I could have just rolling out of bed every day!
Starting off by working the Hydra Recharge Moisture Wrap Leave-in Conditioner into my strands and applying low heat with a hairdryer, Brad then began to curl sections of my hair. His recommendation for DIY at home: curl the hair closest to each side of the face first, curling forward; for the rest of the hair, curl back. Once done, he applied a sparing amount of the new Volume Extend Pure Volume Dry Shampoo, avoiding my roots (for those of you with extremely dark hair like me, take note of this step!).
To give the hair extra softness and to add a glossy-but-not-sticky shine, Brad used the Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil, which is so gentle and such a multitasker that it can also be used on the body and face (I’ll have to test this out!). Following a light spritz of the Anti-Humidity Hairspray, Brad swiveled me around in the chair and took this shot of me with the finished look. I was amazed at how soft my hair was despite the fact that it had product in it, and the curls had just the right amount of bounce to them. What impressed me the most was how well the curls held up through the end of the day and into the next when normally, curls in my hair flatten out within a few hours. Voila:
