Step-By-Step Styling:

1. Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner. 

2. Apply a generous amount of Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse, gently working through hair from roots to tips.

3. Blow dry on a medium heat using a brush to flatten hair to head, discouraging any natural waves until the hair is almost dry, a little ‘cold’ to the touch.

4. Next, using my favorite NEW product Wella Professionals Oil Reflections, apply a few drops at this stage with fingertips all over, it really sends the shine factor into over drive and on the red carpet which is crucial for Oscar night.

5. Continue drying the hair and see the Oil Reflections really lock in the shine and hold the style together.

6. Finish and always set the style, I used Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray, lightly spraying on just the front of the hair to prevent flyaways and she was ready to go.

Step-By-Step Styling:

1. Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner. 

2. Blow dry hair with a round brush and diffuser to maximize the volume

3. Once dry, apply Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse at the root to create a strong foundation for the look. Continue blow drying with a diffuser and round brush until the mousse is distributed evenly and hair begins to take shape

4. Next, rub 2-3 pumps of Wella Professionals Oil Reflections in the palm of your hands and spread evenly through the hair. This will help lock in the shine and volume without weighing the hair down

5. To create more volume and texture, lift random sections of the hair, and spray with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray

Step-By-Step Styling:

1. Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner. 

2. Gently towel dry hair and apply a generous amount of Wella Professionals Natural Volume Styling Mousse from roots to tips with a wide toothed comb to prep hair and create definition and frizz-free shine.

3. Blow-dry using a large round brush, directing the nozzle upwards for added root-lift. Ensure the hairdryer isn’t too hot, which can cause hair to dry out and break.

4. Once the hair is completely dry, create a low side part for added glam, and section hair into manageable pieces.

5. Starting at the front and working backwards, wrap sections of hair around a 1 1/2 inch curling iron and secure each curled section with a pin or clip. Spray the pinned hair lightly with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray and allow to cool for 15 minutes.

6. Once completely set, release the curled sections and smooth through with your hands to loosen the ringlets.

7. Using a large soft brush, gently brush through the curls to create smooth soft waves, but be careful not to over brush or the hair will become frizzy.

8. Work a few drops of Wella Professionals Oil Reflections through the hair to create perfect smoothness and glossy shine.

9. Finish the look by misting hair with Wella Professionals Stay Essential Hairspray for flexible hold.
