Hi! I am Tasha with the Erwin Gomez Salon & Spa. Today, we will be creating red carpet looks of the one and only Jessica Simpson. I will be showing you the proper sectioning for maneuvering this style, the amount of product and which products to use to give you control and also, how to finish off your look to give you the beautiful style of Jessica Simpson.
Materials needed when creating this look, would be a hair comb, a couple of metal clips possibly, metal duckbill clips or a butterfly clip. Hairspray, something very mild within hold, nothing too hard, something with a very soft finish, a shine serum that will give you minimal control throughout the hair and possibly, a paste nothing too sticky, but something to give you a little bit of control when finishing off the look. And also, you will need a one inch curling iron.
In the process, of doing this style you would definitely, want to be very careful when having the curling iron too close to either your face, possibly around the hairline or the nape of your neck, so that if you don't -- because the curling iron, will get very hot, just so you don't get any burn, irritations or anything, using your hairspray off, of your face so that you are not spraying any of this within or towards your eyes. Using the amount of the product, the right amount of product on each section of the hair so that you are not burning the hair, you are putting too much heat on to it. You are going to definitely want to make sure, the setting for your curling iron is at the right setting just so that you are not using too, much heat on the hair, which could possibly burn the shaft of your hair.
First, I will be telling you a little about, myself. I have been working as a stylist for about, 11 years, I have been here at Erwin Gomez Salon for roughly about a year and I have styled a couple of celebrities and this is a definitely a wonderful passion for myself and I look forward to doing this for many years. And now let's get started.
