by Brie from Madame B Fatale on March 2, 2012

“What I love about Wella stylers is that they are light and there’s no product buildup so the hair still has a natural look and won’t get weighed down throughout the night,” Chris explains.

 

Wella were kind enough to send me some products to complete the look along with some instructions (below).

1. Prep wet hair with Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse and loosely dry for a textured finish.

2. Spray Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray while hair is nearly dry so it’s slightly piecy and pull into an imperfect, textured French twist.

3. Add a headband at the top of the head to complete the look for an added touch of elegance.

 

In the video I show you how to create the look. Once you get the hang of it it seriously only takes a couple of minutes, but looks like it takes a lot more effort to do than it actually does.

Oh and you’ll see by watching by how much volume I get after blow drying with the mouse, its awesome!

I know I say this quite a bit but its one of those styles that you can be as messy as you want and it still looks great! I love these 60s inspired styles and am excited that they are sticking around.

(oh and what I’m wearing will be an up-coming DIY)

Disclosure: Wella sent me the two products but I am not being compensated for this video or post.
