Celebrity Stylist Shares Quick Tips for Great Hair


A Bun for Fun
This is the absolute easiest way to create tousled texture. 
1. Before bedtime, distribute evenly an egg sized amount of a bodifying mousse on freshly shampooed hair. Redken Fresh Curls Spring Mousse is a great choice. (www.redken.com) Blow dry 95%. Do not bother with styling…simply turn your head upside down and blow.
2. Brush your hair high up on your head and twist into a tight bun and secure with a few pins.
3. After a long night's rest, slide out the pins and awesome beachy texture will be revealed.

BOUNCING BODY
Hot rollers are the time trusted tool for big volume. 
1. Using sections the size of the roller, mist on a heat protecting spray and roll on large rollers. (www.calistatools.com)
2. Allow the rollers to completely cool before removing.
3. Turn your head up-side and brush through with a soft bristle brush.
4. Flip your head back up and lightly spray with a soft holding hair spray.

WRAP IT UP
The best beachy waves are created by wrapping around an iron. 
1. For an organic look, simply grab random sections and wrap around a wand. My favorite is by DeFabulous because it has a digital readout for perfect temperature selection and an extra long barrel. (www.defabulous.com)
2. For heat protection, spray each section with an ironing spray before wrapping and wear a heat resistant glove.
3. Break apart the waves using a wide toothed comb for added texture.

FIRM FOUNDATION
The key to having a good result in ANYTHING is all about proper preparation. Getting a great hairstyle is no exception. To build the proper foundation you need to use the correct tools and products. 
1. To create the needed body and fullness, fine hair will need a root booster. Mist Redken Rootful (www.redken.com) at the roots.
2. Evenly distribute a thickening cream throughout the midshaft and ends. Living Proof Full Thickening Cream (www.livingproof.com) will surround the strands making the finest of hair feel fuller.

BEST BLOW-OUT
1. To achieve a great blow-out, rough dry the hair 80%.
2. Create 4-5 sections separate sections in your hair and clip them separately.
3. Beginning at the bottom and workin your way up to the top, blow dry each section with a round brush. The smaller the brush, the more curl and volume you will achieve.

The Great Gatsby How-to: Men's Hair Cut



Independent hair and makeup artist Sherri Jessee shares her NAHA nominated entry in the Editorial category with her timely collection entitled, The New Gatsby. The 10 image anthology  was influenced by the much anticipated release of Baz Luhrmann’s 3-D movie inspired by F. Scott Fitgerald’s book, The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan.



The movie was released this week in movie theaters. 1920's style is a hot trend in beauty and fashion that is sure to remain for some time. The star of the book, movie, and her collection is the clean cut Jay Gatsby. 

Sherri shares tips to creating an award winning look.


Using texturizing scissors to cut the entire shape, the top is left longer and fuller with the sides groomed in closer.
To ensure hair lies smoothly, work scissor over comb to remove density. A 32 toothed blending shear is perfect to remove bulk and create softness.

Clean up the perimeter. A perfectly designed swivel thumb shear allows for ease of cutting with no strain on the wrist. 
To control the waves, apply a small amount of a light weight gel, distribute evenly, and comb into place.
For an alternate style, part hair down the middle and carve in deep waves using a fine comb and a strong holding gel.

Sherri Jessee is an internationally renowned hair and makeup artist with her work featured in hundreds of publications worldwide. The inventor of Elegant Organized Beauty, is a regular contributor to Beauty Launchpad. She can be seen in live TV interviews, the main stages of major hair shows,  working New York Fashion Week, and in her namesake salon in Bristol, VA.
