The Hair Look:

Harry Josh of John Frieda’s Backstage Tip: “The moment before the show begins is filled with nervous energy – then the music starts, the lights beam down and all eyes are on the first model. The last thing anyone wants to see is dull, washed-out colour. Apply Precision Foam Colour 24 hours before your big debut to get salon-quality richness and shine that will make you the center of attention.”

Get the Look- How Luigi Murenu Styled These Hairstyles:

  • Step 1: To keep the crown frizz-free, apply a dime-sized amount of hair serum, smoothing hair downward from the top of the head to below the ear.
  • Step 2: Next apply Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse evenly through hair and brush to uniformly distribute product.
  • Step 3: Create a severe middle part and blow dry completely, brushing hair back and away from the face to make the hair at the crown flat and smooth.
  • Step 4: With a 1” curling iron, create a wave by wrapping small sections of hair twice around the barrel. Make sure to stop before reaching the nape of the neck in order to keep the crown flat. Brush hair out to create one uniform wave.
  • Step 5: Follow with hairspray to keep style in place.
