Tasha Gaymon: Hi! I am Tasha with the Erwin Gomez Salon & Spa. Today, we will be creating a red carpet look of the one and only Jessica Simpson. Now we are going to go through and complete our style. Once we have got in all of the hair curl, we are going to want to go through, with a little bit of like a shine paste or cream something that has a little bit more control not so much of a serum or a gelusil, something that has a little teeny bit hard with in texture, it's like a paste, we kind of rough all of that through out all of your hands, you want to make sure, you get a good amount through in running through all of your fingers.
Anytime you put wanting -- you product in the hair to finish it, we are going to work it all the way through us, like a lotion or so, get it throughout the hands, you want to go through and rake your fingers throughout the hair. You want to go through, take all the curls you just kind of comb your hands throughout all of your hairs as so. So the curls kind of look, you kind of separate it, we still have a more of a defined look, you want to go ahead and sweep that away from the face.
Now, while your hair is slightly pulled back a little bit. You are going to want to your finishing spray, spray a couple of inches away, take one of your other hands to pull up at the root, spray a little bit all over. Sometimes you may want to spray it from the bottom and work your way up, because what that does it gets the product, really deep into the -- inside of all of the curls. Spread a little bit right on the surface, bring your head up.
Now once you have got your curls the way, you want them to lay, kind of go through piece it out to the way, that you want the curls to fall, come throughout your hands squelch those curls up, a little bit.
Now we have gone through we have curled all of the hair, we have put our product throughout in our hair, we have pieced it out really nicely, as so but we are still going to have a little teeny bit of flyaway, but it has natural movement to it, a teeny bit of defined throughout all of the hair. Spray it with our product, to keep that control to minimize any extra flyaways or loose hairs or anything, and we finished up a look of Jessica Simpson.
