Matrix Celebrity hairstylist George Papanikolas recently styled Olympian Aly Raisman for the Sherri Hill runway show at New York Fashion Week, using Matrix's Style Link line to create soft, cascading waves. "We wanted to create a classic Hollywood look for the show as we thought it would complement her dress and her gorgeous long locks nicely," commented Papanikolas, who completed the style by tossing the gold medal winner's strands over one shoulder for an effortless vibe. The end result? Timeless, old Hollywood waves that are perfect for your client's next big event. Recreate them in the salon with the following how-to!

Get the Look:

  1. On damp hair, apply Matrix Style Link Volume Builder Mousse to pump up each strand and rough-dry.
  2. Once completely dry, use a 1-inch iron and curl hair away from the face. Let cool and run fingers through to break up into loose, soft waves.
  3. Create a deep side part and spray Matrix Style Link Play Back Dry Shampoo on roots for extra volume.
  4. Pin the smaller side back with a bobby pin and set the look with Matrix Style Link Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray.
