Accessorised waves by Casey Coleman for Cloud Nine

In a festive celebration of style, Casey Coleman embraces his inner experimentalist to create looks for Creative HEAD’s Christmas cover shoot with Cloud Nine. Here’s his quirky spin on sexy waves

Finished look

Apply Cloud Nine Magical Quick Dry Potion (this helps cut drying time in half and protects the hair from heat styling). Next, for additional hold, apply a light volumising foam then blow-dry hair using a round brush for smoothness.

Step 1

Apply Cloud Nine Amplify Spray then use the Curling Wand to create movement, wrapping small sections of hair around the wand in alternative directions as you work through resulting in a freer wave and wilder texture.

Step 2

Continue to work through all sections of hair. When you reach the front hairline, wrap hair around the wand in a vertical direction to create extra volume and lift. Once finished, apply a light hold hairspray.

Step 3

To help set the look, use a strong hold hairspray over the entire head and then use a hairnet to keep the waves softly supported while they cool down.

Step 4

Once the waves are fully cooled, remove the hairnet and use a dressing brush to completely release and separate. NB a vent brush works just as well on finer hair texture.

Step 5

Apply a soft hold hairspray then brush back a section of hair above the ear, on one side of the head and secure using a hair grip. Next, methodically slide in more grips to make a quirky feature – a new kind of accessory!

Step 6

Touch up the waves using Balmain Hair Texturising Volume Spray – it helps to create more of a lived-in, cool and ultimately sexy wave. Add more at the root of the front section of hair for extra lift. Finish with a spritz of strong hold hairspray.
