Pinned waves

Pinned waves

We went behind the scenes on our spring adornment shoot with Academy Educator Federico Patelli to learn how to create this season’s pinned delicate waves

1.

Work label.m Volume Mousse through the hair and dry using the label.m Tourmaline Dryer with diffuser attachment.

2.

Apply label.m Fashion Edition Wax Spray to the top of the hair, smoothing it away from the face.

3.

Secure the hair at the ear with two Toni&Guy Kirby Grips placed in an open triangle formation with a third placed in the opposite direction, down the middle, to support the shape.

4.

Place Toni&Guy Kirby Grips in a tight two-row-formation underneath the right ear continuing across the head until you reach the left.

5.

Leaving a gap of around two inches, repeat the process in the opposite direction with a single line of Toni&Guy Kirby Grips.

6.

Leaving a second gap of around two inches, repeat the process placing Toni&Guy Kirby Grips in a tight two-row-formation across the hair.

7.

Spray label.m Dry Shampoo through the length of the hair and use the label.m Pro Hair Wand down the hair to create smooth waves.

8.

Finish with a spritz of label.m Hairspray to set the waves in place.
