Turn Up The Volume: Expert Hairstylist On How He Does It!


While we’ve had a runway-load of trends from warm highlights to Gigi Hadid’s voluminous waves this year, to balayage — we’re looking to play up the feminine. According to Anand Kaira, this season will be about making subtle tweaks to what you’ve already got. So, it’s perfect for those who don’t want a dramatic change before the wedding.

To ensure loads of body and bounce for your wedding, Kaira suggests beginning with freshly washed hair. He used Moroccan oil’s Volumizing Mousse from root to tips, shielded the model’s tresses with the Wella Heat Protection spray. “Next, I rough-dried her hair in sections from the underneath to the top, only smoothing the ends.” Once Richa’s strands were completely dry, Kaira curled small and large sections of hair, alternating between a 1-inch and 3/4-inch curling iron. He likes the Ikonic Curling Tongs.  “Switching it up allows the style to look more like real waves rather than a curling iron wave,” Kaira says. Then, he combed through all the waves with just his fingers.

Finish the look by spraying the roots with Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Dark Tones to give it some extra texture and volume. A final mist of hairspray will help the style last through your wedding event — and maybe longer.
