I am quite open to experimenting when it comes to my hair colour but when it comes my hair style, I’m rather boring. I’ll throw my hair up in a bun or braid it occasionally, but more often than not you’ll find me parading my freshly curled mane. So last month during Lakme Fashion week, when I had the opportunity to spend some time with the stylists from Bed Head by TIGI, I knew I wanted to try something different. I not only got them to style up three of their iconic looks on me but also got a step by step break down, so that you can recreate these looks at home!
1) Vertical Set
– Prep you hair with a good cleanse and conditioning, using products of your choice.
– Then start with some Superstar thickening spray & the After Party smoothing cream to get a sleek yet tactful hair texture.
– They then suggest that you start by taking pivoting sections; which are nothing but sections that resemble a pizza slice, all through your hair.
– Curl the section vertically, using a tong to create a spring shaped curl. You could even spray some of the Head Hard spray in each section before curling it, to get a better, long lasting curl.
– Now, clip the section to the scalp to help retain it’s shape.
– Repeat the curl & clip process through all of your hair.
– After 5-10 minutes, remove the clips and use a flat brush to open up the curls and then set them the way you like. Don’t forget to spray some of the Headrush shine spray to add a finishing touch to this glamorous do.

2) Rope Braid
– Start my parting your hair as per you liking.
– The stylist used the primping technique to get that voluminous, textured look in my hair. You could absolutely skip this step and just use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner for the previous wash or alternatively, you could even use the

3) The Faux Bob
– For this look again, make sure you start with big, voluminous hair.
– Now, if you have shorter hair, you probably don’t need to even bother with this step but for those of you who have long hair like me, start by taking a horse shoe section of hair and clip it away.
– Separate the length below the horseshoe by twisting your hair into small tufts, pinning them away close to the scalp, to aid the illusion of short hair.
– Once done with the bottom length, start vertically curling pivoting sections of the top hair, using a tong and clip them to cool off. Use the photo STYLDRV_-5463_zps8pb4yjdv.jpg
