AMA Hair: Poufed and Retro
Gwen Stefani always seems to be at the cutting edge of beauty and style! On the red carpet on Sunday, she rocked a retro glam look with her platinum blond locks, and it was definitely a head turner. For any retro look, ‘the pouf’ is an absolute necessity.
Here are some pro tips to create that perfect pouf:
- Don’t Style Freshly Washed Hair
Working with hair that has been freshly washed brings you at a disadvantage since you’ll have less texture to work with. Either skip a wash to try this style or utilize your Leyla Milani Hair ‘NO H20 Volumizing Dry Shampoo’ to create that added grain to work with!
- Blow-Dry Upside Down
Blow-drying your hair upside down helps to provide instant volume right from the start. Flip your head over and dry your locks in that position until your roots are mostly dry, finish styling as desired.
- Have the Proper Tools
For mega volume, you’ll need the right products! Utilize your Leyla Milani Hair ‘Big Hair Don’t Care’ Volume Boosting Powder for this look by simply sprinkling the powder at your roots and working in. This ‘fairy dust’ helps to create the added texture for big, sexy, voluminous hair! You’ll also want to invest in a good blow-dryer with diffusing capabilities.
- Learn How to TEASE
Possibly the most important secret to a perfect pouf! On textured hair, you’ll need your Leyla Milani ‘Big Tease’ Comb to gently brush back strands of hair until you’ve created your desired height. Don’t forget to lightly brush out the surface to smooth!
- Don’t OVER Pouf!
Last but not least, you definitely don’t want to over pouf yourself! You simply want to create a lift that accentuates your face and is flattering to your look.
