SJP Channels Minnie Mouse; Hair by LeCompte for Wella

                Sarah Jessica Parker looked uber cute on Wednesday as she stepped out for Barneys New York and Disney electric holiday window unveiling in New York City

With a dress by L’Wren Scott and an adorable minnie mouse ears headpiece, SJP relied on her locks to look beautiful thanks to Wella Professionals Celebrity Stylist Andy LeCompte. Taking a break from taming Madonna’s mane during the MDNA Tour, LeCompte ensured SJP's hair worked perfectly with the custom made headpiece by creating gorgeous volume and curl.

Here's the how-to to achieve this look on your clients:

  1. Start by applying 2-3 pumps of Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier to tame frizz and smooth the surface of the hair. This will also give the hair some texture and hold so the hair is primed for styling.
  2. Section the hair to blow it out with a round brush that will give the hair body and volume. Use a tennis ball sized amount of Wella Professionals Natural Volume Mousse to rake through the damp hair before blowing out each section.
  3. Once the hair is completely dry, heat up a 1.5” to 2” curling iron. Prep hair with a mist of the Wella Professionals Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray to protect hair from the heat tools.  First, curl the front section away from the face and then curl the rest of the hair alternating the curls towards and away from the face to create a less uniform, naturally curly look.
  4. Pin large curls into place to set the curl for about 20 minutes.  As you remove the pins, finger comb the curls out and into place so there’s natural movement.  Then use Wella Professionals Stay Essential Finishing Spray to spray underneath for an added lift and texture in the hair.
