Formula Friday: Easy, Romantic Valentine’s Day Hair Styles

valentines-day-hair-styles

Tis’ the season to be adored! Whether you’re getting ready for a romantic date or going to dinner with your besties this Valentine’s Day, we’ve prepared six breathtaking looks that will make hearts skip a beat.

Valentine’s Day Hairstyles

Hitched & Happy Half ‘Do

  • Prep with a few pumps of O&M Know Knott Detangling Spray and O&M Atonic Thickening Spritz on clean hair for volume and heat protection. Then dry hair without a brush to create volume.
  • When the hair is 80% dry, add O&M Rootalicious Root Lift Spray for even more volume. Next, use the O&M Classic Hair Brush to add volume at the roots and smooth out the ends.
  • Using a large barrel curling iron, create a curl two inches from the roots. Work both sides, curling to the crown and angling the curls away from the face.
  • Spray with O&M Queenie Firm Hold Hairspray and allow to cool.
  • Use a rat tail comb and separate hair from the recession line, taking it to the crown. Back comb this section from the front then braid from the middle back. Secure with a band leaving the ends out. You can use a smaller curling iron to give curl to the ends.
Half-Updo-Hair-Style
  • Place a few bobby pins into the braid and push forward before you pin to create extra volume.You can add a few clips to secure the ends as an accent.
  • Use a large basin comb to soften the curls and set the style in place with O&M Queenie Firm Hold Hairspray. The hairspray will help create more volume in the crown.

Heartfelt Half Bun

Floral-Half-Bun-Hair-Style
  • Use a rat tail comb to release some of the braids in sections and create loops of hair. Then, secure firmly with pins.
  • Run through ends of hair for soft curls.
  • Place a few drops of O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum onto fingers and pull through ends of hair to add shine and separate the curls. The longer you leave the curls to cool, the longer they will last.

The Fairytale Ending Bun

Braided-Bun-Hair-Style
  • Pull strands out of woven bun to create a waterfall effect. Use fringe pins to secure the style in place. Fringe pins can be woven through hair to support creating more volume than bobby pins.
  • Using the metal end of the rat tail comb, separate the braided sections to create volume and texture in the bun, giving a flower like appearance.
  • Use the curling iron to reinforce the waterfall curls for a more dramatic effect.
  • Mist hair with O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Spray to complete the look. A drop of O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum in the fingers will make the hair easier to braid.

The Imperfectly Perfect Ponytail

High-Pony-Hair-Style
  • To create this look, shampoo the hair with Oway Silver Steel Hair Bath. This will remove any unwanted warm tones in the hair and brighten the blonde.
  • Then condition with Oway Moisturizing Hair Mask.
  • Towel dry and spray the Oway Volumizing Root Spray at the root of the hair. Blow dry using a large round brush, over the roots to create a voluminous blowout.
  • Apply a light dusting of Oway Plant & Mineral Refresh at the root to add texture.
  • Back comb at the top at the parietal ridge into the crown area. Pull the hair back and secure ponytail with a rubber band.
  • Take a one inch piece of hair from the bottom of the ponytail to wrap around it. Secure with small bobby pins.
  • Back comb the ponytail. Once it's secured and finished, style using Oway Sculpting Mist.

Romantic Half Twist

  • For this sweet look, shampoo the hair using Oway Moisturizing Hair Bath and condition the hair using Oway Moisturizing Hair Mask. Towel dry the hair and add Oway Flux Potion to smooth, add volume and blow dry the hair.
  • Use a wide barrel curling iron or flat iron to create loose curls. Make sure to spritz the hair with Oway Thermal Stress Protector prior to curling. This protects from heat damage, provides a medium hold, and leaves the curl with an extra-shiny finish.
  • Allow the curls to cool, then lightly tousle and scrunch the hair using Oway Sea Salt Spray to achieve these romantic curls.
  • Take a two-inch section of the fringe and start rolling the hair to the back and pin as you go. Repeat on the opposite side, then connect both sides with a rubber band.
Romantic-Half-Twist-Hair-Style
  • Cover the rubber band with a half inch section of hair taken from under the pony tail and pin.
  • Complete this look with with Oway Glamshine Cloud for immediate shine and Oway Sculpting Mist for hold.

Flirty Side Braid

Flirty-Side-Braid-Hair-Style
  • Create your part and begin a French braid on the heavier side working towards the back. Once you have created your braid approximately halfway around the head, pin hair under the remainder of the loose hair. We suggest pinning the braid throughout where needed.
  • To complete this style, use Oway Glamshine Cloud for immediate shine and to tame any “fly-aways”. Use OOway Sculpting Mist to hold your style.

golden-globes-hair-styles

The 2019 Golden Globe Awards was full of surprises and upsets. But if there’s one thing more interesting about the ceremony itself, it’s when the celebrities arrive on the red carpet in their show-stopping gowns and stunning hair ‘dos and makeup.

Check out our red carpet favorites below!

Lucy Boynton Hair Color Formula

COLOR

To achieve Lucy Boynton’s hair color, start by using the O&M Paint Powder Clay Lightener and O&M CØR.color 40 vol Activator to lighten from roots to ends. Then, apply a base color of O&M CØR.color 9.1 Very Light Ash Blonde and O&M CØR.color 10 vol Activator on her roots of to give depth and a very softly shaded effect. Shampoo then apply a toner of O&M CØR.color 10.8 Lightest Pearl Blonde all over the hair with a semi-activator. Let this process for 20 minutes, then shampoo and treat the hair with O&M Seven Day Miracle Moisture Masque. The coconut in this product will add extra nourishment to the hair.

STYLE

Place O&M Know Knott Detangling Spray into damp hair, then blast the hair dry without using any brushes until it’s about 80% dry. Then place liberal amounts of our sea salt spray O&M Surf Bomb Sea Salt Texture Spray through the hair to create volume and texture. Please note that Surf Bomb is designed to give a more matte gritty appearance. This is not a shiny product. From there, create a center part using a large barrel iron, giving the hair a small S wave and keeping the ends straight. Allow the hair to cool down. Finally, spray O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray to set the style. To soften the curls and create the fullness, use a wide tooth basin comb.

Thandie Newton Hair Color Formula

Source: Elle.com/Frazer Harrison

COLOR

For Thandie Newton’s hair color, use a back to back semi-permanent formula to layer the depth and glaze her hair. Use O&M CØR.color 4.0 Brown with a O&M CØR.color 5 vol Activator onto damp hair. Then, shampoo hair and use half 4.0 and half O&M CØR.color 0.00 Clear as our final color. This will give depth and incredible shine. Detox the hair then use O&M The Power Base Protein Treatment. Power Base is a mixture of both protein and moisture which is fantastic for curly coarse hair.

STYLE

Begin by layering O&M Know Knott Detangling Spray and O&M Frizzy Logic Finishing Shine Spray onto damp hair and dry until 80% of the moisture is out of the hair. Then, place O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum through the hair and smooth with a natural bristle brown brush to make the hair smooth from roots to ends. Starting at the nape, take an inch-wide section. Using a small curling wand, create curls all around the barrel, forming a tight S shape from roots to ends. Continue this all the way up the hair, then allow to cool. Next, brush the hair gently with a large tooth comb to release the curl. Using your O&M Detangler Hair Brush, break the curls up to create a soft wide triangular Afro effect. Finish the style with O&M Frizzy Logic Finishing Shine Spray to settle any frizzy and impart an amazing shine onto the hair.

Lady Gaga Hair Color Formula

COLOR

Do on-scalp lightening using O&M Ammonia Free Keratin Powder Lightener for 50 minutes. Then, do mid-length to ends cleanse using O&M Ammonia Free Keratin Powder Lightener, O&M Original Detox Shampoo and water. Then use O&M CØR.color 10.6 Lightest Violet Blonde onto damp hair to tone and remove unwanted warmth from the hair. To achieve the blue glaze through the hair, mix 30g of O&M CØR.color 0.00 Clear with 1g of O&M Mineral.CCT 0/88 Blue Tone Booster with O&M CØR.color 3.5 vol Activator. Paint this through the hair on the crown, nape and hairline. Then, emulsify through like a shampoo to give a blue rinse like effect. Shampoo and condition, then the hair is ready to style.

STYLE

Apply a mixture of O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz and O&M Know Knott Detangling Spray through the hair then finger-dry to 100%, smoothing the hair using a Denman Brush. Then, apply O&M Style Guru Styling Cream through the hair and dry again using a Denman Brush. To create the roll, pull the hair from the nape to the crown then roll like a sausage (you can also place some hair stuffing to create more of a bump). Once rolled, pin and secure the hair with a fringe pin in silver so they couldn’t be seen. Then pull the sides up, wrapping them around and tucking them in like a French roll. Once the style is set in place, put some O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum onto a tint brush and paint onto their hair to create a shiny almost wet look effect.

Julia Roberts Hair Color Formula

COLOR

To achieve this hair color on Julia Roberts, paint the new growth and melt out about an inch using Oway Hcolor 6.0 Natural Dark Blonde and Oway Hcatalyst 20 Volume Cream Developer. Then, add face framing highlights and lift with Oway Hbleach Butter Cream Lightener to a level 9 pairing with Oway Hcatalyst 40 Volume Cream Developer

Color the remaining hair with 25g of Oway Hcolor 9.3 Golden Very Light Blonde and 5 g of Oway Hcolor 9.43 Copper Golden Very Light Blonde and Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer.

Once processed, shampoo with Oway Hbalance Post-Color Neutralizing Shampoo and condition with the Oway Hbalance Post-Color pH Mask to restore the hair’s natural pH. Towel dry and mist the hair with Oway Hrestore Protein Treatment Spray, which will add natural protein, evening the porosity of the hair. Then, glaze over the hair with the Oway HNectar Color treatment Oway Hnectar 10.32 Caramel Extra Light Blonde and Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer. This will add shine, condition the hair and seal the color.

STYLE

Prep damp hair with an Oway Glossy Nectar and Oway Flux Potion cocktail to reduce frizz and help hold the overall style while reducing hair breakage during the drying process. Once the hair is blown out, mist the Oway Thermal Stress Protector and curl with your preferred iron. Start wrapping the hair from the eye down. Brush the curls out into a wave pattern once the hair cools. Finish with the Oway Sculpting Mist to set style.

Jamie Lee Curtis Hair Color Formula

COLOR

To re-create Jamie Lee Curtis’ hair color, lighten the hair out past pale yellow using the Oway Hbleach Butter Cream Lightener and Oway Hcatalyst 40 Volume Cream Developer. Tone with Oway Hcolor 90.11 Intense Ash Super Bleaching Blonde and Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer. After your color has processed, shampoo the hair with the Oway Silver Steel Hair Bath, which will additionally reduce the yellow from the hair and condition with Oway Color Protection Hair Mask. Towel dry the hair and spray the entire hair with Oway Color Protection Veil to prevent color from fading. To maintain this color, remove any unwanted warm tones using the Oway Silver Steel Shampoo at home once a week.

STYLE

Prep the root area on damp hair with the Oway Volumizing Root Spray and blow-dry texture up into the hair. Finish with the Oway Shaping Putty twisting and polishing the hair into shape.

COLOR

Highlight the hair with small babylights using the Oway Hbleach Butter Cream Lightener and Oway Hcatalyst 30 Volume Cream Developer. Spice up the remaining hair fabric with Oway Hcolor 6.35 BST Tobacco Dark Blonde and Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer. Complete the color using Oway Hnectar 10.21 Extra Light Lavender Blonde and Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer after the hair has lifted.

STYLE

Blowdry with the Oway Flux Potion and a drop of the Oway Nurturing Drops to create volume, texture and thermal protection. This cocktail will also nourish and seal the ends while speeding up your blowdrying time.

Then after the hair is dry, use Oway Plant & Mineral Refresh as a dry shampoo, adding more texture for the braid you will be creating. Using a center part, fishtail braid from front right to middle back, and then repeat on left side. Leave a few small pieces out around the face to frame and detail the face. Use bobby pins to tuck and secure the braids in the back. To complete this style, use Oway Glamshine Cloud to add shine and control flyaways. Add hair accessories for additional bling. Don't forget to spray the hair with Oway Sculpting Mist to hold style in place for your fun evening out.
