Matrix Celebrity Hairstylist George Papanikolas recently styled Olympic Gold-medal gymnast Aly Reisman for a red-carpet event. “Aly spends so much time in the gym and training with her hair pulled back,” shares Papanikolas about how the look came about. “We wanted to really pull out all the stops and went for glam Hollywood waves. She already has amazing hair and I really wanted to maximize its volume and body.”
Here’s how you can steal Aly’s look!
- On damp hair, apply a volumizing mousse and root powder. Blow-dry with a round brush for a smooth but full finish. To try: Matrix Style Link Volume Builder Mousse combined with Height Riser Volumizing Powder.
- Once completely dry, take a 1-inch curling iron and create smooth waves throughout. These waves are always a classic look on the red carpet!
- Once the head is fully curled, finger-brush hair lightly, then apply a flexible hairspray to ensure hold with movement.
