Emma Lung: 2015 AACTAs

Hair by Elly Armitage using Wella Professionals & Cloud Nine equipment

Elly Armitage on Emma Lung’s retro waves for the 2015 AACTAs.

“Emma came into the salon with such an incredible pregnancy glow – we wanted to accentuate that with a clean, soft wave through her hair to keep everything really feminine and really beautiful.

First, I prepped the hair using Wella Luxe Oil and then created some texture and soft hold with WELLA Ocean Spritz through the mids and ends. I Blowdried the hair, smoothing out the ends. WELLA Ocean Spritz is so great for giving the hair body. I parted Emma’s hair heavily to the right allowing the curl to sit across her face, framing it softly. Then, I sectioned Emma’s hair, using the Cloud9 small wand to curl each section. After each curl was released from the wand, I pinned the hair to the nape of the neck and continued upward over the head until all her hair was curled and pinned.
Next, so that her hair stayed in place for the entirety of the event, I sprayed each curl with SEBASTIAN Zero Gravity Hairspray. I removed the pins and dusted Evo Haze lightly to the scalp to create texture and lift. Once I was confident the hair was set, I brushed out the curl and styled the finished look, giving it one last spray of SEBASTIAN Zero Gravity Hairspray. Before she left the salon, I gave her hair one last come through of Wella Luxe Oil for a final touch of red carpet shine.”
