Before she gears up for her Dancing with the Stars debut on March 18th, celebrity hairstylist Araxi Lindsey recently worked with teen star Zendaya of the hit Disney TV series, "Shake It Up," styling her in a sea of loose waves for the show's music video "Contagious Love" alongside Bella Thorne. The song appears on the soundtrack for the series which was just released last week.
"Zendaya naturally has amazing hair. She loves movement and easy flowing tresses," reveals celebrity hairstylist Araxi Lindsey.
How the look was created:
Step 1: I first applied White Sands Orchids Oil to smooth Zendaya's tresses. Orchids Oil is not heavy or greasy. It's a light weight smoothing serum that smells amazing.
Step 2: Next, I sectioned her hair in two & began flat ironing with a 1" ceramic iron. I usually take small sections and run the flat iron twice from the roots to the ends of her hair.
Step 3: Then, I take small rectangular sections of her hair and put curves on the ends using just the iron.
Step 4: Finally, I sprayed the crown of her hair with White Sands Stuck Up Mega Hold Hairspray to keep flyaways in place. This hairspray is a perfect styling tool for a light all day finishing hold. Zendaya's hair was able to keep movement and body for a full 10 hour day of dancing, singing and acting.
