Meg here! We have a great question for Mr. Marco Pelusi-our hair guru, it’s a good one and one I’m sure a lot you want the answer to!
Q: “I am going out for my birthday and I want my hair to look amazing. I
have long wavy hair. What is a style that looks hip, trendy, yet sexy?”
A: “You’re in luck, my dear. Long wavy hair is BACK! It first of all would be nice to get a quick trim, along with adding a few longer, well-blended layers to tame and shape and help control those waves. Go to someone who knows curly wavy hair. It can be a nice solid line at the bottom, and if it’s short enough (closer to the shoulder), it can lean forward. Or it could be cut into a ‘V’ in the back bottom.
To get the waves to look trendy, they need to be big, loose waves/curls, without frizz. First thing to do is to use a wonderfully moisturizing conditioner in the shower, and even perhaps leave a bit in the hair (preferably Marco Color Hydrate Conditioner with Collagen Color Guard). When you leave the shower, towel blot your curls thoroughly, removing excess moisture. Prior to combing, apply a leave-in conditioner (preferably Marco Color Anti-Frizz Leave-In Conditioner) to allow the curls to form a lovely S-shape, and to encourage loose big waves. Allow the hair to dry for a while. After it’s dry, to add the ‘sexy’ part, grab a fat barrel curling iron (1 to 1 1/2 in.) and take 1/2 sections and curl them. Allow these curled sections to drop down and cascade in a natural fashion. After a bit of time, lightly finger through your curls to slightly stretch them out and loosen them. If you wish, add a gloss or spray (preferably Marco Smoothing Gloss and/or Marco Color Guard Hairspray) to enhance and ‘finish’ the style; which should have movement and flow, and not be stiff in any way. Let the curls relax and have fun shaking your head around to attract attention! Hope this helps! If you’re ever near Robertson in L.A., let me know; I’m happy to demonstrate this technique for you at my studio!”
Who out there is growing out their tresses? Thanks as usual Marco! We hope you win the title!
