Crimped Party Hair by Emma Bedwell

If you’re looking for a rockin’ party style for your clients, take a look at this hair by Emma Bedwell.

Once an 80s fixture, today crimping is back – no, really. We saw it on the catwalks at Stella McCartney courtesy of Eugene Souleiman and Bella Thorne made it fresh for a new generation.

Ideal for giving serious volume to fine hair, this look oozes rockin’ glamour. Here, Emma from Hoop Haircutters tells us how she created the stunning look above.

Step one

Work a flexible mousse like Clynol Move into dry hair and blow-dry in to add more density.

Step two

Use micro crimpers (we used Coroliss) on small sections of hair to create volume and texture. Start at the nape of the neck and work up the head.

Step three

Once at the crown, back brush the root, then crimp over to give height and hold. Continue this for the rest of the head, working the hair back from the face.

Step four

Once all the hair is crimped and has cooled, lightly brush through with a Tangle Teezer to soften the look.

Step five

Finish with Clynol Uphold hairspray.
