Q: What was the inspiration behind this hair look?

“Um, actually the inspiration came from Rebecca. She created the hair look with stylist Kelly. We had this sight 70’s range where we wanted to maintain really healthy, shiny beautiful glamorous hair. It’s not about dirty hair anymore. Its about a soft and gentle wave like the 70’s tinge.”

“I think the focus is making sure that the ends of the hair, from the mid shaft of the ends are bent away from the face, kind of opens up the face to give it that 70’s feel. We’re using Joico Hair Shake at the ends for a fuller affect and also using Joico Flip hair spray.”
