Shannon Lamm, owner of the Atomic Salon in Raleigh, North Carolina, and Goldwell national guest artist, did the cut and finish on this monthâs cover, creating a commercial and an editorial variation. Hereâs how to style hair:
|A. For the smooth look, the freshly shampooed and conditioned hair is sprayed with a leave-in treatment, lightly gelled, then blow-dried.||B. Shannon applies a shine spray. Then, working from the exterior to the interior, he flat-iron sections the width of the iron.|
|C. For the rough finish, he runs through the flat-iron lengths with a molding paste to prepare for finger-teasing. He selects sections, twists them almost to the ends. . .||D. . . . feeds the twisted sections, minus the ends, into the flat-iron, . . .|
|E. . . . wraps the section around the outside of the flat-iron and holds for a moment.||F. He then goes back to each twisted section, clamps the ends between his thumb and index finger, and teases the strands up from ends to scalp.|
|G. He finishes by accenting some sections with wax. That is how to style hair.|
The finished looks.
