If you've been following the weather in New York City (and why would you if you didn't live here!), you know it's rain, rain, and more rain. So as I jetted over to Pierce Mattie's Media Oasis for the Zotos Diamond Shine event a week ago, my hair was huffing and puffing with frizz. But, as luck (and Zotos) would have it, F. Wayne, a super-talented editorial stylist with The Artist Loft talent agency, was on hand to transform my hair from fuzz to fantastically shiny and voluminous in a half hour. And during that precious 30 minutes, I gleaned this bit of insider info from F. Wayne: As far as style is concerned, we'll be riding the texture-laden wave.
"For my celebrity clients, it's all about the illusion of natural waves—tons of volume and texture," he shares. "I admit: I use a lot of hair extensions, and there's a lot of curling-iron work. But, at the end of the day, I want to make these waves look like they're natural and not too perfect."
The muse for wave perfection? The City's starlet Whitney Port, who F. Wayne recently beautified.
