Olympic inspired "Figure Skating" style created by Russian Wella hairdresser Tatyana Shuvalova. 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 in this "Figure Skating" Olympic look created by Russian Wella Hairdresser Tatyana Shuvalova

"I love the beauty of an ideally smooth surface of ice, and I would like to show this icy shine in glossy hair. I’ve called this style ‘Smooth Chic’," says Shuvalova. "My inspiration is a strong, purposeful, but very elegant and subtle figure skater. Smoothly styled hair reflects the lights when she comes to ice skating arena and beautifully moves with her motion, giving her confidence so she is inspired to win!"

STEP 1: "First of all I created glossy texture and improved the quality of the hair to give it a shining effect. I did this with the help of Illumina Color."

STEP 2: "Create a volume of the crown zone, fix it with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray and add shine with Wella Professionals Mirror Polish Shine Serum."
