Working with a beach bride? Redken Artist Jackie Litscher shows us how to achieve this romantic yet casual look. “My beachy bridal inspiration for this style was a chic, effortless look that also has a classiness behind it,” says Litscher. “This look will last all day and night, and your clients can really make the look their own by adding in a hair piece like I did here, by twisting their hair into a knot at the back of their head, or by leaving all their hair down with loose waves. The hair piece really adds a fun element to the look―it’s the perfect addition for an effortless look with a twist.”
GET THE LOOK:
•Prep dry hair with a few spritzes of Redken Iron Shape 11 throughout lengths and ends for heat protection, and a touch of hold.
•Comb out 1” sections of hair with a fine-tooth comb, then use a 1” curling iron on each section moving away from the face.
•Allow all curled areas to cool.
•Using a crimping iron, crimp the under layers at the back of the head for added root volume. If you don’t have a crimping iron, simply backcomb these sections with a fine-toothed comb.
•Starting on one side of the head, take the face-framing sections in the front―about ¼ of total hair’s thickness―and separate into two sections.
•Twist these sections around each other, then secure in the back with bobby pins. Repeat on the other side.
•Using your fingers, allow the face-framing baby hairs to peek out on either side to soften the look and add to its effortless vibe.
•Spray a few spritzes of Redken Control Addict 28 all over for hold and protection against humidity.
•If desired, secure a barrette or embellished hair piece in the back to add a bit of extra polish.
