When creating this satin corset style, Ruth Roche prepped hair with Pureology Silk Bodifier Volumizing Mousse and blow-dried it smooth. To create the corset panel, Roche took a 3-inch-wide section and pulled it into a tight ponytail at the nape. At the front hairline and to the right of the section, she laced roots and twisted sections from the top of the head down to the nape and secured with crisscrossed bobby pins. Using a different color of hair from a weft, she threaded it through a large craft needle and sewed it back and forth, stitching into the twisted pieces on either side of the panel. After pinning ends in place, she smoothed surrounding hair into a ponytail around the original ponytail in the nape. Then Roche wrapped a piece of hair around the elastic and set with Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hairspray.
To achieve this feathered look, Roche cut a graduated bob with layers and used internal and external feathering with shears. She prepped hair by first rough-drying with Root Lift Spray Hair Mousse, set it into barrel curls with her fingers, sprayed the hair with Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hairspray and allowed it to set. She then removed the clips and tousled hair with her hands before applying Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo and tousling with her hands again to create an airy feel. She finished by applying Piecing Sculpt High Hold Sculpting Fiber Paste to the ends for separation and definition.
To craft this lacy look, Roche prepped hair with Pure Volume Instant Levitation Mist and blow-dried it smooth with a round brush. She secured hair into a ponytail at the crown, leaving out a 2-inch section inside a deep side part and wrapped the ponytail into a bun. Next, she took 2-inch sections from the ponytail, and created five-strand braids, weaving in a pink hairpiece as one of the strands. She pulled the edges of the braids away from the center, creating a flatter and wider braid with texture to create a lace-like look. She pinned each braid over the surface, covering the entire shape, and set with Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hairspray.
Roche achieved this ruffled style by prepping hair with Lustrous Volumizer Bodifying Glaze and Root Lift Spray Hair Mousse and blow-drying it smooth with a round brush. She then sectioned out a 2-inch-wide horseshoe section around the side part. She placed lace underneath the hair, then smoothed and tucked it into a faux bob. She sprayed hair with Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hairspray and secured it underneath with large bobby pins. She then crimped the top area with a Sam Villa Textur texturizing iron, from roots to ends, and used a ¾-inch iron to create “ruffles” by alternating its placement, winding hair back over the clamp to create indentations. She placed the ruffled hair over the bob and pinned it into place, tucking the ends under. She set the style with Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hairspray.
To create this tweed-inspired style, Roche prepped hair with Root Lift Spray Hair Mousse and Nourishing Nectar Sculpting Gel and blow-dried it smooth with a large round brush. After fashioning a deep side part, she took a section from its high point to 1 inch behind the ear, smoothed strands and secured them behind the ear with two crisscrossed bobby pins, creating a “headband.” Using hair from a weft, she cut ¼-inch pieces and threaded them through with a craft needle before stitching them through the headband of hair on a diagonal for a woven effect. Finally she pinned the ends underneath to create the tweed headband style and set with Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hairspray.
To achieve this tulle-inspired style, Roche prepped hair by blow-drying with Lustrous Volumizer Bodifying Glaze and set it from the nape down by winding hair around a large hairpin, using a figure-eight pattern. She set the top area with a 1-inch iron off base, and then brushed out the underneath section to create the tulle look. After brushing the top section smooth over the tulle, she sprayed hair with Strengthening Control Zero Dulling Hairspray, molding the underneath portion with her hands to create a stronger shape.
