Do you need hair that is easy to manage and that can look super sophisticated all at the same time?

There never seems to be enough time in the day to do everything you have to do outside of the many meetings and conferences you have scheduled in a week, let alone your hair! Looking professional does not exactly mean having a bland or generic hairstyle. With hairtalk, you have the option to play with length, volume, color and style in the workplace.

If you’re looking to wear your hair long and wavy with extensions that hold curls overnight look no further! We also have come up with a hairstyle that is pulled back from the face. Read on as we teach you how to apply the hair extensions and how you can make the Long & Wavy look, as well as the Bossy Pompadour look!

The Long & Wavy

Products Used:

  • Original Extensions 22”-24” in  #8, #23, #24
  • Original Plus Extensions 18”-20 in 25/8R
Application*:
*for certified stylists only.
  1. Starting at the occipital bone, begin application by using Color #8 on the bottom, paired with Color #23 on top.
  2. Continue to apply the extensions, row by row.
  3. Once you have reached the top of the ear, begin to use Color #24 on the bottom paired with Color #23 on top.
  4. Begin to apply the side sections with extensions.
  5. Starting with the right side, use Color #23 on the bottom and Color #24 on top. Next apply the left side, before moving onto the next row. Use the same color combination.
  6. Make sure both side sections are applied before moving to the back section. Once the back section is complete, move to the next row.
  7. Continue to apply each row, switch the color combination; Color #24 on bottom, #23 on top and vice versa.
  8. The last row should be at or around the temple, apply Color #23 on the bottom, pair with Original Plus Rooted Extensions on top for a seamless blend.

Expert tip: Use Color #23 & #24 with Original Plus Rooted Extension around the hair line. This will keep the extensions undetectable when the hair is pulled back.

Styling:  
  1. Starting at the occipital bone, begin curling by wrapping the hair underneath the curling iron. Hold for 3-5 seconds, release the curl from the wand and clip it with a duckbill clip. Allow hair to cool.
  2. For the next row, curl the hair by wrapping the over the curling wand. Hold for 3-5 seconds, release the curl from the wand and clip it with a duckbill clip. Allow hair to cool.
  3. Continue alternating the curl row by row.
  4. Leave curls pinned for 5-10 minutes for cooling. This is important!
  5. Begin removing the pins, starting from bottom to top.
  6. Use a wide paddle brush, brush through the curls starting from the ends of the hair and move towards the top.
  7. Finish the look by spraying Schwarzkopf OSIS+ Elastic Spray. Always remember. Less is more!

Styling:
