For her hair as cropped as hers, you may think there’s not much you can do with it, but Dove stylist Coree Moreno would disagree. From wash, condition, and style, here’s how Moreno created a perfectly moisturized and glittery look inspired by her stunning gown.
“Cynthia’s look was simple fairytale glam. I was inspired by the custom Versace gown and the way it sparkles and wanted to recreate a hair moment to compliment the gown,” Moreno recently told HelloBeautiful.
That, and he used Dove’s new and upcoming line for natural hair, Dove Amplified Textures, aimed for every curl, wave and coil, to achieve her lewk.
- “We started the morning with a double process color leaving her hair pearly white. The key to the perfect color is having a well-moisturized base, so I was excited to use Dove Amplified Textures Hydrating Cleanse Shampoo ($6.99) & Dove Amplified Textures Moisture Spa Recovery Mask ($6.99) (available now at Target) on Cynthia during our color session to ensure her hair is off to a healthy start.”
- “After shampooing, I let the Dove Amplified Textures Moisture Spa Recovery Mask ($6.99) sit on her hair for 10 minutes before rinsing it out to begin our style. I love how this line was made specifically for textured hair, so the moisturizing ingredients were perfect to hydrate Cynthia’s coils post process. Once the mask had been fully rinsed out, I applied Dove Amplified Textures Moisture Lock Leave-in Conditioner ($6.99) on damp hair and combed through evenly for an added layer of protection.”
- “To style, I used a palm-sized mound of Dove Style + Care Volume & Fullness Mousse ($4.88), I lathered up her hair and then went in with a comb to slick down her hair. I repeated the process a second time to build structure and hold.”
- “To finish, I refined detail areas like her hairline and neck area with Dove Amplified Textures Shine & Moisture Finishing Gel ($6.99) The slick shiny texture of the product allowed me the flexibility to mold her hair and refine details adding glitter-infused gel to amp up the glitz and glam.”
- To finish, a generous blast of Dove Style + Care Micro Mist Extra Hold Hairspray ($4.89) to keep the structure perfectly in place all night without flaking. Adding a light diffuser for additional hold and dry.”
Voila! We likey!
