Monaé Everett is a celebrity hair stylist, author, and public speaker who also educated with her “The Monae Life Academy,” an online learning platform. She shares her technique for a beautiful, long-lasting blow out. Most recently, Good Morning America featured her secrets for frizz-free curls.
“This style should last until she shampoos again, which will be approximately 10 days,” Everett says. “In order for her to maintain the style at home, she should either wrap her hair in a circular manner or put her hair in a high ponytail and twist the ends down and secure it in place. It's important for her to cover her hair with a silk or satin scarf while she sleeps!"
Get the look:
STEP ONE: After a cleansing shampoo, I deep conditioned this model's hair by adding ingredients from your pantry (coconut oil and eggs) to the conditioner. This helped to add protein and moisture to her tresses to prepare them for the direct heat.
STEP TWO: I then sectioned her curls into five large sections to detangle using a leave-in conditioner that doubles as a heat protectant and the Fromm Flexer detangling Wet brush. Next I layered the Oribe Smoothing cream and the Naked by Essations Satin and Silkening Glaze to her strands.
STEP THREE: To ensure the highest level of heat protection and evenly distribute the products I used the Fromm Hot Paddle Brush. That brush really came in handy because I also used it to smooth each section.
STEP FOUR: To create the extra bounce I used the Fromm Intuition (square) brush. I tend to lean toward square brushes because I can use them to pull the hair straight and add bounce and a curl. I love any item I can use multiple ways.
STEP FIVE: After a quick trim we smoothed the hair with my FHI Sleek Rose Gold Flat iron. I also used the flat iron to add my movement to the ends of her shoulder grazing strands.
