How to get the look Muse Fendi Collection

I often get asked to create "Get the Looks" for celebrities. 

Today I was asked by super-star image consultant, John Paul Hamilton, "Can you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do me a favor and find out how Nicolas Jurnjack got Carola Remer's hair to look like this." 

While I can only speculate as to the products and tools used to create this lovely look, I can certainly share with you how I was able to create a similar shape on my gorgeous model, Nadia.

Step One.
Distribute an eggs sized amount of a bodifying mousse like Pravana Density Extreme Volumizing Foam through damp hair and blow dry.

Step Two.
Create a "Dry Set" by curling on a 1" curling iron. For heat protection and long lasting hold, spray each section with a heat protecting spray like Pravana Super Shape Hair Spray. For less curl, you may opt to use a 1 1/4" iron.

The Dry Set.

Step Three. 
Be sure to carefully pin each curl and allow the set to completely cool. Remove the pins and see the amazing curls revealed.

Step Four. 
Brush, brush, brush and you will reveal a shape that has fantastic body with undulating waves ending in soft curl. A light misting of a shine spray like Aquage Beyond Shine

It takes practice to pull off a good dry set, however, it is well worth it. Don't worry, your set doesn't have to look as neat as mine did... Even if it's messier it will still be effective. Another hint: longer clips (standard duck bills you can buy in a box at Ricky's NYC) are easier to use than the small ones I used in this demonstration.
