So stoked for this wonderful shoot with Alvin Nguyen and model Meghan Wiggins. We traveled 3 hours away from LA to Joshua Tree to do a spec and everything turned out so well! When you have an amazing crew, it always makes for a painless and fun day.
For Meghan's hair, I was really inspired by the Marciano and Guess ads. With Meghan being a Guess model herself, I knew I couldn't go wrong. I wanted to give her the 60's American classic do that I think is just timeless and beautiful for any girl.
First, I prepped her hair with Paul Mitchell's Texturizing Sea Spray at the roots for a bit of a gritty texture (this will help me hold the back combing for volume later.)
Blow dry the crown with a round brush and make sure everything is over directed for maximum volume and lift.
Once dried, I curled 1 inch by 1 inch sections vertically in one direction and pinning each curl to cool and set. (Curling each section int he same direction will help the eaves melt into each other for a s wave.)
When finished and the curls are completely cooled down and set, take out pins and brush gently with a flat boar bristle brush. Back comb the top for volume around the crown and finish off with Paul Mitchell's Extra odd Firm Hair Spray.
