This upcoming Fall, Celebrity Stylist Nicholas Penna Jr., owner of SalonCapri and Creative Director of Be Styled Blowdry Lounge, predicts that updos with flashy embellishments, grunge chic waves, classy top knots and dazzling pinned-back styles are going to be the rage of the season. Here, he offers steps to two ready-to-wear styles you can try on your clients.
Add versatility to this voluminous updo by adding a headband or gold embellishments for a more formal look.
STEP 1: Apply dry shampoo throughout the hair to absorb excess oil and increase volume.
STEP 2: Once hair is prepped, section off a strip of hair running from the front to the back of the head. The section can be wide or narrow, depending on your desired look.
STEP 3: Backcomb or tease the roots of the hair in one-inch sections with a thin comb, working your way forward to the front.
STEP 4: Once the desired volume is achieved, smooth the rest of the hair up and over the teased section using a paddle brush. To create more of a pompadour, take the sides of the hair and pull back into a braided or simple bun.
STEP 5: Opt for a gold headband or gold embellishments.
Go edgy this fall season with textured, “glamorous” grunge waves. To get the look, pull apart the waves for a more distressed look.
STEP 1: This look works best on unwashed hair, but if your client has clean strands, add texture to the look by applying L’Oreal Professionnel True Grit Texturizing Powder.
STEP 2: Part the hair on the desired side and gently run fingers through hair—stay away from a comb or a brush, these tools will frizz the desired look.
STEP 3: With A 2 inch-curling iron, pick sections of hair randomly through hair, and curl the bottom half. Loosen curls with fingers once they have cooled.
STEP 4: Finish with a dusting of texturizing powder.
