HAIR BY: Celebrity Hairstylist, Castillo
INSPIRATION: “Since the dress was custom-made, I really wanted the hair to be cohesive with the vision of the designer – sleek and chic.”
TIPS/TECHNIQUE: “I started with a wash which is the foundation. I used a moisturizing shampoo to help her hair withstand humidity and heat from the tools. Next, I used a detangler and combed through her hair to untangle and minimize frizz.
“I rough blow-dried the hair using the ghd air® hairdryer until it was about 80% dry, then brushed through it with the ghd paddle brush to take out any tangles. I created the side part, then section by section I flat brush blow-dried the hair straight and then went back over each section with the ghd platinum® styler from mid hair shaft to end.
“Once I was done straightening, I took a dollop-sized amount of molding cream and coated root to mid hair shaft on the sides of her hair. I brushed it through and then with a twisting motion I twisted it behind her ear and down the back of her neck. I repeated this same technique, minus the twist and gathered her hair into a low ponytail, secured it with a hair bungee and wrapped a section of hair around the bungee to conceal it.”
