Styling hair for set work varies from what you might create in the salon or for an event. When working in editorial shoots or filming, hair needs to stay put, but also be flexible at the same time. You never know when talent or a creative director will want to change up a style and alternatively you might need the hair to hold all day long. Finding a balance between flexibility and staying power is key.
With a great deal of experience in getting styles to stay put, Jada Jenkins, Sam Villa Ambassador, Mizani Artist and L'amour de Rose Salon Owner @jadajenkinsco, recently styled @mrs.miathornton for Bravo’s Real Housewives of Potomac reunion show. She says the pairing of Mizani products to smooth and combat humidity combined with building a texture foundation with Sam Villa tools was the perfect combination for the 15-hour day.
“I felt Mia needed something off the shoulders because of the detail in her dress and bobs are classic, timeless, but also really fun!” explains Jenkins.
Get The Look:
- Shampoo with Mizani Press Agent line to help smooth natural hair and control humidity.
- Blow-dry straight with a Sam Villa Vision Blow Dryer and paddle brush.
- The Sam Villa Artist Series Cordless Clipper (coming soon!) and cutting comb was used to establish length followed with blending shears to soften ends and remove bulk.
- A Sam Villa Signature Series Straightening Sleekr® Professional Straightening Iron was used to straighten hair line smooth.
- Curled hair with a Sam Villa Artist Series 2-in-1 Marcel Iron and Wand to create a nice solid curl.
- Locked in the style with Mizani HRM anti-humidity spray.
- Let curls set until walked on set.
- Used a wide-toothed comb to gently comb curls into a soft wave.
“This was a 15-hour day, I was very impressed that her hair lasted pretty well. I only had to give her one-touch up throughout that day!” adds Jenkins.
