We loved some of the looks on the Grammy Red Carpet last night and asked transplanted Parisian Lea Journo (owner of the eponymous salon in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel) how to get some of the signature looks.
The high-spirited Lea Journo told us:
“The beach wave tousled look is here to stay and we’re really happy about it! These ladies took it to another lever on the red carpet last night by pairing it with glamorous makeup and fabulous gowns.”
“The best way to achieve this look is by lightly towel dying hair and applying your favorite sea salt spray. Once you have applied spray thoroughly, take sections of your hair and apply heat from your diffuser directly. A trick to this look is to keep your curling iron and/or wand handy and go over a few face-framing pieces. This will help keep those key pieces in place. If you’re looking to achieve a red carpet look, we would also suggest the light touch of a smoothening/glossing serum to finish off this look!
(Both the Texturizing Sea Salt Spray and the Sea Silk Mousse are $28 at Lea Journo Shop.)
Lea: “Pixies and bobs are definitely two very bold looks -this is also why they are a couple of my favorites!”
“The magic for this look is in the cut and a good stylist will work with you to determine the very best cut based on your face shape and hair’s texture and thickness. Once this has been determined, styling will become second nature. When I work on these looks, one of my goals is to maintain femininity of the looks by softening angles. With a great cut, these looks just require a quick blow dry and a bit of product! Mousse can be applied before the blow out to increase volume and a thickening powder can be applied to roots once hair is dry for an added boost.”
Ok, gals, time to try this at home!
