I was contacted recently by a John Frieda PR to see if I would be interested in recreating one of the styles they demonstrate on their YouTube tutorials. I checked it out and there were several tutorials I was interested in, such as the 1940s updo and the Body Blow Dry. As soon as I saw California Waves though, I knew that was the one I wanted to try! You can check out all their tutorials here. They're really good, it shows you the models trying to create the styles themselves rather than just a hairdresser creating it for them as is often the case - we don't all have a live in hairdresser after all (I wish!)!
Here is the video of the style I have tried to recreate:
They make it look so easy and the end result is gorgeous! I was kindly sent out the products used in this tutorial to help me recreate the look:
(L-R) Frizz-Ease Dream Curl Styling Spray, Frizz-Ease Secret Agent Perfecting Creme, Anytime Volume Refresher and Frizz-Ease Miraculous Recovery Intensive Masque.
And here are my step my step results!
'Scuse the lack of make up also!
I am looking terrified/psychotic for good reason.
And with makeup:
So what do you think? I know it's a bit tighter, I think that's cause of the curlers I used. Is this a look you would try?
Let me know!
