Vivian's Makeover by Enjoy(Click image for full size)
- Submitted on Tuesday, May 19th, 2009 by NaturallyCurly
Vivian has naturally curly hair with thick density. Her length and previous color had grown out leaving light brown roots and faded sections through the middle of her hair. She did not want any change to her overall color but instead desired to match the grown out pieces to her natural hue and to take control of her unruly texture.
Enjoy Design Team member Bobby Paul evened out her color and applied a rich, golden copper brown hue. Next, for a super-sleek look, Donny Anderson applied a quarter-size amount of Enjoy Straightener mixed with a dime-size amount of Shine & Smooth to Vivian’s damp hair. He blow-dried two-inch sections at a time with a paddle brush and then flat ironed the dry hair to set a sleek finish. Texture Spray was applied in the crown area before backcombing for volume and added shape. Shine Spray and Hair Spray were then layered on over the top for increased luster and all day hold.
For substantial volume with soft, touchable bends and waves and fun pink splashes, Donny added Enjoy Styling Gel at the root and Styling Spray all over before blow-drying with a round brush. Once dry, he set large sections on large Velcro rollers, set her under the dryer for about 10 minutes and then allowed the hair to cool. The rollers were undone and the hair was finger-styled into shape with a misting of Hair Spray to seal the deal.
For a controlled curl, Donny applied a half dollar-size amount of Enjoy Shaping Lotion to her clean, damp hair and worked the product in from the roots through the ends. Next he scrunched the hair with his fingers as he diffuse-dried with low heat, which helped to activate her natural texture. Once completely dry, he coaxed the curls into shape and misted with Shine Spray for added luster and Hair Spray for long-lasting hold.
