SOCHI 2014 HAIR: Olympic Inspired Skiing Style by Wella

Lauren Salapatek | February 5, 2014 | 12:50 PM

SOCHI 2014 HAIR: Olympic Inspired Skiing Style by Wella Wella Professionals will be creating a full service hair salon at the P&G Family Home for The Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, situated in the Olympic Park. Building on the huge success of Wella’s activity at The London 2012 Olympic Games, the brand will be fielding twelve top colorists and stylists from around the world who will travel to Sochi to be part of an elite team providing hair services to beautify athletes and their families.

The dozen Wella stylists selected are a part of Wella and Proctor and Gamble’s inspirational ‘Thank you, Mom’ campaign. Building on the positive events at the London 2012 Olympic Games, the stylists will be extending their expert color services, styling and hair treatments to the athletes taking part in The Winter Games as well as their biggest supporters, their moms.

In the run up to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, some of these top stylists have created a hairstyle inspired by one of the sports represented in the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. In the how-to below learn how to re-create the style and color in this "Skiing" Olympic look created by Russian Wella Hairdresser Diana Simonyan.

I am very glad to participate in Olympic activity and I am happy that The Winter Games will take place in Sochi in 2014 - this has given me a lot of inspiration! I would like to show the crystal beauty of Russian winter and the unpredictable and surprising Russian soul. I created a style that expresses motion and the will to move forward, just as in Skiing."

STEP 1: The base color of the model was at level 8/0. I lightened her hair with Blondor and 4% Color Touch emulsion. Then I used Color Touch Relights (00/+06/+18/) with 1.9% Color Touch emulsion.

STEP 2: I selected a triangle of hair on crown and pinned it out of the way, then shortened the hair on the back of the head, starting from the middle and working round to the back. Once I had finished, I cut the hair on the crown by determining the length at the top and then cutting rest to this length.

STEP 3: To finish this look, I used Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier, Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray and Wella Professionals Oil Reflections.
