Hollywood Waves How To — Get The Look Seen At Cannes Film Festival
Nexxus New York Salon Care Global Creative Director Kevin Mancuso spilled on the inspiration: “We wanted Rachel’s style to be modern and asymmetric, with one side tucked elegantly behind the ear and parted to the side for a contemporary take on a classic look.”
Here’s the how to for Rachel’s glam look:
1. Prep towel-dried hair with Nexxus New York Salon Care Mousse Plus to weightlessly support the style for natural and lasting volume.
2. Blow-out the hair, section-by-section, and add in medium Velcro rollers to create a smooth, yet full-bodied finish. Apply Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Encapsulate throughout the drying process to leave hair sleek and nourished.
3. Once the hair is dry, brush out the curls and style with a medium curling iron starting mid-length to create a smooth and modern feel with a nod to classic Hollywood glamour.
4. Apply a final palm-size amount of the Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Encapsulate to add definition to the waves. Finish with the Nexxus New York Salon Care Comb Thru Touchable Hold Finishing Mist to provide long-lasting hold while keeping hair touchably soft.
