L’Oréal Professionnel Master Session Artist, Laura Polko, created romantic curls dramatically parted on the side for the Houghton Fall 2012 presentation at New York Fashion on Thursday, February 9. The styles perfectly complemented the fluid textures seen in the winter white collection by designer Katharine Polk, for her Fall 2012 Houghton line.

  1. Create an extreme deep left side part and work in two golf ball sized amounts of L'Oréal Professionnel Mousse Volupté or L'Oréal Professionnel Densité.
  2. Rough dry and use a round brush, holding parallel at the crown to part hair in an upward and over direction to the right (to create height).
  3. Section hair from ear to ear.
  4. Starting in back of hair, create 1 ½—2 inch sections.
  5. Position the 1 ½ inch barrel under the hair, spray with hair spray, and wrap hair over the iron, twisting it as you go.
  6. Curl both sides of the hair with the iron using an upward motion then release.
  7. Loosen curls with fingers.
  8. Set hair with hairspray.
  9. Make sure hair is tucked behind left ear, spray and then tuck again.
