How To : The Stormy Blowdry at Ginger & Smart SS15
A step-by-step guide of HOW TO recreate Renya Xydis’ “Stormy Blowdry” for Ginger and Smart’s SS15 show.
Start with dry hair. Spray the hair with Wella SP Perfect Setting Blowdry Lotion and Wella Ocean Spritz.
Blowdry through the hair roughly. This will set the foundation for texture and movement, giving it that “stormy”, unruly feel.
Wrap large, random sections of hair around a Cloud Nine Wave. Wearing your Cloud Nine Mitt, rub the Wave up and down the sections of hair to smooth out the follicle and create an unbroken, natural curl.
Make sure to only wind the Cloud Nine Wave as high as the nape of the neck. This is a soft, relaxed style and all of the body should remain in the bottom third of your hair.
Separate the hair so that it is parted dramatically to one side. Allow the front section of the hair to fall naturally around the face.
Go over any waves to make sure that they fall vertically from the crown of the head.
NOTE: flyaways are welcome here! You want the style to have an airy quality. It is soft, stormy and tousled, not perfect.
Warm a generous amount of Wella SP Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir between your hands, comb through the lengths of the hair and then skip the hair.
(Skipping the hair is when you wind up the bulk of the hair into a twisted and flick it in a circular motion to break up the wave and really work the product into the hair.)
Allow the hair to cascade around the shoulders and face. Then, using your fingers, pinch the hair along the partline to create lift.
