Valentine’s Day Look: Glossy Curls with Pearly Pins

  • Apply Redken Iron shape 11 for heat protection.
  • Create face framing slices on both sides of the head (about 4”) and pin to hold.
  • Section hair and use a Sam Villa Pro Results Double Waver to create glossy waves and curls around the entire head.  PRO TIP:  To build maximum volume in the crown area, insert waiver with the round side closest to the root so hair flows up and over the waiver to give maximum lift from the base.
  • Take one of the side sections, smooth with a comb and secure into a ponytail with a small section of hair taken from underneath the back side of the head.  Smooth with the back side of a Sam Villa Artist Series Finishing Brush.  Repeat on other side.
  • Adorn the side panels with diamond and pearl pins to frame face.
