A whole lotta love for this hair

I have been getting a lot of emails from you girls asking about products and the process we used for this 70’s hairstyle… So here it is, I interviewed Briana Cisnernos my hairstylist…

How can someone achieve this look?

70’s inspired  hair is all about airy/feathery texture and volume from your eyes down. The way I achieved this was too prep the hair with Oribe’s Volumista Mist for Volume in order to hold the style and be able to re mold it throughout the day. Then, I set the hair with a ¾ inch curling iron with no volume at the root and rolled everything away from the face (Farrah Fawcett style)

Now lets talk boho braid transformation…

You’re always so amazing coming up with creative ideas on the fly, how can someone achieve the braid you did? It totally transformed the curly Jerry hall look into a pretty soft Boho braid…

Oh why thank you, Audrina! I’ve been doing all kinds of braids since I was young. Practice makes perfect. when you curl the hair before braiding it it adds an incredible texture to the style. I like to pull on the edges of the braid to loosen it up and make it look more romantic.

This look was achieved by brushing it out and tying a beautiful scarf on.

Any pointers for this 70’s glam look?

After setting the hair, brush it out like crazy and add Death Valley, a dry shampoo by R and Co., it will help get that beautifully angelic airy feel.

Mine lasted for a week!! Using dry hair shampoo.. I was obsessed.

make me up!

For all of you who want to know how to achieve this look…  here is a little 411 from Amy Clarke! 

Amy, what was the inspiration you were going for with this 70’s glam themed photo shoot?

For this shoot I was inspired by 70’s supermodel and fashion icon, Jerry Hall. Her signature look was perfectly bronzed skin and eyes, paired with vinyl red lips and long blonde hair. Her look became synonymous with the 1970’s It Girl.

To achieve this look, I began by making sure Audrina’s skin was well moisturized and primed. I used Murad’s Skin Perfecting lotion mixed with a few drops of Kypris Beauty Elixir II in “Healing Bouquet”, followed by a layer of Glossier’s priming moisturizer.

On her face I used Koh Gen Do Moisture foundation, Nars Creamy Concealer in “Custard”, Urban Decay 8-hour blush in “Indecent”, Charlotte Tilbury’s Norman Parkinson Filmstar Bronze & Glow, and Lorac’s Pro Contour & Highlight Palette.

For Audrina’s eyes I used Lorac’s Gold Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette, Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Perversion”, Flutter Lash Mink individual lashes, and Too Faced “Better than Sex” mascara. For her brows I used Senna Cosmetics Sketch-A-Brow brow pencil in “Light Taupe”, followed by Powder Brow Color in “Blonde”For her lips:
