Modern Bob

It’s the it cut of the season, and for good reason…the long bob can take you in so many different style directions. When the mood is subdued, wear it smooth and sleek with a graceful
sidesweep. Or, For a casual vibe, opt for bouncy waves with lots of movement, like this tousled object of mane desire, crafted by the style pros at jcp salon.

Beachy Minnesota

While there may not be an ocean in Minnesota, that doesn’t stop Miss Minnesota (from the Miss USA pageant!) from getting seriously glam beachy waves, courtesy of hair pro Rocky Vitelli, Global Artist for Farouk Systems. Here’s the step-by-step, along with a (super-quick!) video that shows how it’s all done.

1. Starting at one side of the head and working toward the other, and starting from the nape and working toward the crown, divide hair into 2-inch horizontal sections.

2. Working with one section at a time, spray hair with CHI Texture Spray, and wrap tresses around a curling iron, leaving about one inch at the end uncurled.

3. When all sections have been curled, apply a small amount of CHI Finishing Pomade to palms and fingers and work through hair, starting at the nape and working underneath the hair.

4. Mist locks with additional texture spray and arrange waves as you like.

International Style

A British styling team went to Spain to show off fab hairdressing—how’s that for international style!

The Hooker & Young Art Team, from Hooker & Young in Newcastle, England, flew out to Majorca, Spain, last month to showcase 10 stunning looks inspired by their collections to over 400 passionate hairdressers. Gary Hooker and Michael Young led the show, presenting looks from three of their most loved collections, on behalf of Schwarzkopf Professional.

“It was a fantastic event and we were thrilled to showcase our looks to such an eager and attentive audience,” shares Hooker. “It was a pleasure working with the Spanish team and discussing all things hair with some wonderful, inspiring stylists.”

Here’s are a few scenes from the event…
