The Julia Curls
Hair by @_thehalfrican
Julia Roberts had the ideal head of curls in the 90’s. Natural curls were a hit then and, luckily, resurfaced in recent years. Here’s how to recreate and modernize the style.
- This look is mainly about the haircut. Follow the shape of the head with layering to build volume and shape.
- Cleanse the hair and rinse thoroughly. Add a lot of water while raking through sections of hair.
- Use a scrunching method with Oway Curly Hair Potion while the hair is flipped upside down.
- Rake through Oway Smoothing Cream.
- Depending on the density of the hair adjust amount of cream to use. Section hair down the middle about a quarter for each side.
- Diffuse dry.

The Space Buns

Gwen Stefani always had vibrant hair color and styled it with the ever popular-double space buns. Here’s how to refresh this decade favorite.
- For this fun 90’s look, Use Oway Thermal Stress Protector before curling with a 1” wand. Let the hair cool before running fingers through.
- Spritz hair with Oway Sculpting Mist.
- Put some Oway Water Resin on fingertips to do the dutch braids in the mohawk section. Pull the braids out a little bit so they are not so tight to the head.
- Secure the braid with an elastic and lightly tease the leftover ponytail before twisting it into a knot.
- Use bobby pins to secure it and pull apart some sections of the buns to shape them.
- Finish with Oway Sculpting Mist to set the style in place.

- Mix Oway Hbleach Butter Cream Lightener and Oway Hcatalyst 20 Volume Cream Developer in foils making sure to keep continuously checking.
- Rinse and tone with a mixture of O&M CØR.color 6.11 Intense Ash Dark Blonde & O&M CØR.color 5 vol Activator.
