ALBUM COVER SHOOT STYLING

I love doing my own hair so much that I even styled it for my album cover shoot! We wanted to go fun and fresh so I took advantage of my natural waves. My waves are not the type that tame themselves, so I used quite a bit of product to make them “look” effortless. After a wash, I towel dried my hair while using the towel to start the scrunch process from the sides and underneath. I applied a generous amount of Thermafuse Redefiner Curl/Wave Enhancer with my hands while using the scrunch up motion with my claws all over my head (you can also use your favorite mousse or foam). Then, after letting it air-dry for 10-15 minutes, I start the blow-dryer. If your hair is longer, I recommend using the diffuser attachment that comes with most dryers these days. For short hair, just use those hands. While holding up the scrunch full of hair, aim the blow-dryer at the bunch of hair but keep the handle moving so you don’t fry your hair. Flip your head over and continue the process on all sections until hair is 95% dry. Then take a comb and tease at the crown and underneath to give it extra volume. Spritz Aussie Scrunch Spray all over and give it a good final hand scrunch all over. I usually use a flat iron to smooth out my bangs just a bit to soften the look. Add a matte wax to the ends to ease the frizz (I use GHD Sculpting Wax). Then you are playful and sexy and ready for your new adventure.
