Number 4 High Performance Hair Care and Birchbox, a beauty discovery and sampling platform, invited guests to attend an exclusive and intimate event: High Style Downtown at Curt Darling Salon in Los Angeles.
As an added benefit to their Birchbox subscription, members had an opportunity to experience Number 4 products at the "bun bar" with a pink diamond martini in-hand. Utilizing the expertise from the talented Curt Darling salon team, each guest experimented with a different bun style and was coached on how to re-create the look at home using Number 4 products. Buns ran the gamut from top knots, to braided buns, to low chignons, each matching the unique style and personality of the wearer.
Prior to their departure, each guest received a special Number 4 gift and was asked to snap a bun photo to enter an Instagram contest using #number4haircare.
Curt Darling, salon owner and Emmy winning stylist shares his best bun tips:
· Cleanse, moisturize, and volumize with Number 4 Hair Care prior to styling. Stylists actually prefer working with clean hair (as opposed to dirty hair) and using styling products to create texture. Try Number 4 Volumizing Shampoo and Condition for added volume and hair lift.
· Use Number 4 Non Aerosol Hair Spray and spray through the roots to create fullness.
· After you have created your bun, take a fine pin and bend one foot back. Swirl it in hair and anchor. You don’t need a million heavy pins to hold your style.
· Leave a section of hair out in front, which leaves you the opportunity to use it and incorporate into your style, or lose it and pin it back.
