As Seen in MODERN SALON Photo-Worthy Hair

Achieve Photo-Worthy Hair one of MODERN SALON's top viewed step by steps.

When you’re working on a photo shoot, the stakes are much higher for beautiful, memorable hair.  In a twist of glamour, celebrity stylist, Sherri Jessee, styles long hair inspired by classic finger waves from the 20s mixed up with rough texture from the 80s.  



Sherri Jessee of Sherri’s Hair Salon in Bristol, Virginia, recently attended a MODERN SALON Artist Session and created this magazine-worthy style. Here are the steps she took to create the look.


1. Apply Rusk Being Gusty and blow dry the hair for thickness and hold. Leave top section slightly damp and create finger-wave pattern on each side of center part.



2. Spray individual small sections with Being Sexy and curl in spirals using a tiny iron. Spray completed set with additional Being Sexy for hold.



3. Brush out small sections and tease with tease brush. Have great make-up applied!



The completed look.

Textural Transformations for Shelsi




Celeb Stylist Sherri Jessee shares her tips for glamorous hair on gorgeous model Shelsi.

Look One: In The Beginning
Starting at the bottom, underneath layers of hair and working toward the top, and working in small sections, mist hair lightly with a heat guard, then flat-iron lengths smooth and sleek (Jessee used a Sultra Seductress Flat Iron). Pro stylist tip: Be sure to follow through with your comb as you flat-iron for perfectly smooth results.

Look Two: The Second Style
Tease the crown section and lightly brush hair toward the back; secure lengths in back with bobby pins. Pro stylist tip: Cross two bobby pins in an X formation to lock them into place. Touch up where needed with your flat iron and gently bevel the ends.

Look Three: The Final Look
Release the bobby pins and create loose waves by wrapping large sections of hair around a 1.5-inch barrel curling iron (Jessee used Sultra Seductress’ Bombshell Curling Wand). Pro stylist tip: When wrapping hair around the iron, alternate the direction for each new section. For an edgy finish, leave the ends of each curl out for extra texture.
