HOW-TO: Create Sun-Kissed Hair Tone and Bouncy Barrel Waves!

Lauren Salapatek | July 18, 2013 | 12:41 PM

We’ve seen Selena Gomez’s gorgeous chocolate locks styled in virtually every trend-setting hairdo. Whether she’s sporting a sleek, straight style or hitting the movie set with bouncy barrel waves, this teen queen’s tresses are always bountiful!

Try it: To achieve this look, try adding Simplicity extensions, says Celebrity Stylist Mohammad Rahebi, Identity Salon in Encino, California. “Simplicity Hair Extensions will change flat, thinning hair to show-stopping waves. Combining Simplicity’s wavy textured human hair in two different lengths will give your client added layers and volume."

"Adding Simplicity’s 18-20” hair length in 2” hair width right above the nape area will instantly increase length. Combine that with the application of Simplicity’s 14-16” hair length in 1” hair width to the sides and back area for long layers and fullness. Blending Simplicity’s color number 4 and color number 27 would be the perfect mixture to match Selena’s sun-kissed hair tone."

“After setting the extensions in a layered cut is necessary preferably with a razor. It's important that you take out any bulk from the front. Start from the longest piece and use that as a guideline on where to start. Curling the hair in big sections and away from the face gives fullness. Tuck real hair behind extensions and set with hair spray. Adding volume at the roots is optional, but you must always style the bangs.”

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
