Hair TIPS: Hot Valentine’s Day Hairstyles

To ensure your hair client looks stunning on this holiday of love, Scott and Jennifer Fontana, owners of Cristophe Salon Newport Beach, have three hot looks to perfectly compliment your client's romantic night in or out!
Hot date night going out:
This look is big and sexy. Parted to one side or down the middle, this hot date look is accompanied by lots of beautiful, sexy waves and volume.
- Products you will need: The Scott Fontana Collection Volume Mist, Max Mousse, a one-inch curling iron or wand, the Scott Fontana Collection Argan Oil Infused Nourishing Serum and Free Hair Spray with a light hold.
Here are the steps for hot date night hair:

Wash and condition your client's hair, then towel dry and run a detangler through it. Next, spray your client's roots with the Volume Mist and apply Max Mousse through the ends. Then, blow dry hair upside down, which creates a more voluminous look.  Next, take a round brush and continue blow drying your client's hair to smooth out the ends, but make sure not to brush your client's roots. Once your client's hair is fully dry, take your one-inch iron and start curling large sections of hair.  Once you have curled all your client's hair, run your fingers through it to break up the curls and create movement. Using just a dime size amount of serum, apply it to the ends of hair with your fingers. This will give the hair incredible shine and calm done some of those flyaways. Flip hair upside down and spray your roots to give it some extra hold, flip hair back and apply one last spritz to the front and you’re set! [pagebreak]
A Romantic Night In:
We call this the classic Hollywood glamour look. The main player is soft, beautiful waves that give your hair a 40's style look. This style is versatile and can be worn with long or short hair. If your client has long hair, pull part of it up so it becomes medium-short length and apply some soft waves.
- Products you will need: The Scott Fontana Collection Maximum Mousse, Sweet Serum, Shine Spray and Free Hair Spray. You will also need a curling wand, small clips and a few bobby pins.
Here are the steps for a romantic date night hair:
After washing, run a detangler through hair. Apply Maximum Mousse to your whole head from the roots to the ends and then top with a small amount of Sweet Serum over the mousse. Next, flip hair over and blow dry it upside down for additional volume, using only your hands and fingers and then flip  hair back up and use a round brush to smooth out the ends. Using your curling wand (not curling iron), take big sections of hair, elevate it to the top of your head and wrap it around the curling wand with your fingers for approximately 45 seconds. Next, take hair off the curling wand, keep it curled in your hand and using small bobby pins, clip the curl to your client's head. This will allow the curl to cool down and set. Repeat this process all over head and once you have completed the curling and clipping, spray all the clipped curls very lightly. Let the spray dry for a minute then start removing all the clips from the curls.
Spray a little Free Hair Spray on a natural boar bristle flat brush and starting at the top of hair and brush hair out through the ends.

Inside tip: The spray on the brush will keep the hair together. Keep brushing it and running your fingers through the hair until you create those soft, sexy waves. To pin it up, take the hair at the bottom, wrap it around your fingers and pin it up underneath the hair on top, leaving some soft long pieces around the face. Spray some Shine Spray over the entire head for shine and perfume, and finish it off with just a touch of Free Hair Spray. [pagebreak]
Night out on the town with girlfriends:
This look features quick, light waves just around the face and on ends. Nothing too big, instead gives you a very natural night-out look.
-Products you will need: The Scott Fontana Collection Fre sh Do Dry Shampoo, Locked Up Finishing Spray and a large one-and-a-half inch curling iron.
Here are the steps for night out with the girls hair:

This style works better when the hair is a little dirty and not so soft, so if your client can go without washing hair the night before this hairstyle will hold better. In the morning, spray in the dry shampoo all over the entire head, from roots to ends. Take medium size sections, brush them out gently and with your curling iron curl the section by rolling it back towards the back of the head. To note, when creating this style it is not necessary to lift the hair up high while curling. Repeat the same steps in sections all around your client's face and the bottom of her hair in the back. If hair is layered, be sure to curl the longer layers. After you have finished curling, run your fingers through the hair very lightly just to loosen the curls. Then, spray the curls and entire head with the Locked Up Finishing Spray so the curls hold and won't fall out by the end of the night.
For a quick touch up at the office your client will need a travel size of the Locked Up Finishing Spray and a one-and-a-half inch curling iron.
