My Hair & Makeup Breakdown from the W Magazine It Girl Luncheon

I was so excited and honored to be invited to W magazine’s It Girl luncheon a few days ago and, of course, I also wanted to share the breakdown of my hair and makeup from the event!  My glam team is the absolute best and I felt really fabulous lunching with some of my favorite people!

  • On clean, damp hair apply a golf ball sized amount of Sally Hershberger 24K Supreme Body Volumizing Mousse starting at your hairline and working around the crown of your head
  • Comb through to work the product all the way through your hair from your roots towards your ends
  • Rough dry hair until it’s about 90% dry
  • When doing a severe side part, section from your desired part then create three different sections, one section in the back, one on the left frontside of your head, and one on the right front side of your head.
  • Start blow-drying hair with a large Ibiza round brush. (Note: Nicolas loves Ibiza brushes…”they are comfortable to hold due to a cork handle and the boar bristles add in a ton of shine and volume.”)
  • Start your blow dry section in the back and work your way up and over
  • Once you’ve blown out your hair: make three sections, starting at your part
  • Taking horizontal sections (use a 1 Inch Hot Tools Marcel Iron), start at the back bottom section and wrap the hair around the barrel, alternating in different directions as you work up to the crown of the head. It’s important to take 1″ to 1 1/2″ partings to create the desired look
  • Repeat these steps on both the left and right side of your head. It’s very important to remember to wrap the iron away from your face when waving your fringe area
  • Finish with using your fingers or a wide-tooth comb to rake out your curls for a more tousled undone look
  • Spray a medium hold hair spray and you’re all ready to go
