I was asked if I could like to recreate one of the looks from a video. I chose to try the 'Messy Up Do' hair style.. I chose that because I love glam looking up do's, and whenever I wear my hair up I just put it in a boring ponytail, so I wanted to try something a little bit different.
John Frieda sent me the products used in the video to help me achieve the look.
- John Frieda Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Mousse.So, I decided I would give it a go! I watched the video a couple of times, and then got to trying it out!
- John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Hairspray.
- John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Blowdry Lotion.
- John Frieda Frizz Ease Perfecting Cream.
- Boots brown Hair Grips.
I have to say I am quite impressed with the outcome. It was nowhere near perfect, but I don't think I did a bad job for a first attempt. I followed most of the steps to the letter, apart from the 'curling the perimeter' of your hair. I already have naturally curly hair, so I left that part out.
This is how I used the products to create my look..
After washing and conditioning my hair I used the thickening mousse all through my mid-lengths and ends, I then spritzed some of the blow drying spray through my hair too. Then I blasted my hair roughly dry with my hairdryer. The mousse and blow dry spray both have thermo protectant in, so my hair was protected.
Once my hair was dry I used a small amount of the perfecting cream through the ends of my hair. Then I backcombed my hair around the crown of my head. I twisted the crown area hair up (like he did in the video) and then smoothed the rest of my hair back into a tight ponytail around the crown. This gave added volume.
Next I grabbed random sections of my hair from the ponytail and backcombed them and twisted them around my finger and gripped them to my head and around the hairband, making sure to conceal it.
1,837 hairgrips and a spritz of hairspray later and I was done! Here is the finished look..
