“Eccentric, bohemian and empowered, I wanted this look to echo the protest movements of the ‘60s and ‘70s clashing with the modernity of the traveling woman”
Three wefts of extensions were prepped in advance. On the day of the shoot, I applied lots of strong hold hairspray then tightly backcombed the extensions to boost frizz and texture. Next, I used a crimping iron over the backcombing then allowed hair to cool. Once cool, and using a soft bristle brush, I released the frizzy texture.
Apply a full head of extensions with wefts very closely packed together. Use a hairdryer on the cold setting to quickly fix the glue.
Section by section, use a waving tool to produce a deep bend – making sure each section of waves lines up with the next.
Using a 19mm curling tong, tightly curl the fringe and set with hairspray.
Use your fingers to separate and loosen the waves and frizz then brush from the roots. Apply more hairspray, massaging in to create extra texture to finish.
