From selecting the right blonde tones to impeccably styling the client’s natural texture, a lot goes into creating bouncy blonde locks.
Sam Villa ambassador Lindsey Olson shares tips and tricks for flawless-looking blonde curls.
“Having dimension in blonde hair allows texture to pop because the lighter parts have a darker background for contrast. It’s especially important to have that dimension at the base; curls should always have a deeper base color to stand out,” she states.
How to achieve dimensional blonde curls:
- Section hair while working with Sam Villa Dry Sectioning Clips for control.
- Dry hair with a Sam Villa Vision Blow Dryer and ceramic round brush; blow dry Redken Full Frame 07 into dry hair for volume.
- Use a 3/4" Marcel iron and spiral tong hair with Redken Iron Shape 11 to set the style.
- Break set up with hands.
- Use a diffuser to create volume and a lived-in feel; allow the diffuser to do the work, and keep hands out of the hair.
Styling tip: When working with thermal tools, remember that blondes show everything, so bevel or round the section upon contact to prevent iron marks.
