  • <b>Romantic Updo</b><br />
“This look is easy to do, but make sure you leave yourself enough time to let your hair dry,” says Oribe Creative Director Ronnie Stam. “This style is perfect for curly haired girls or those with natural waves.”<br />
<br />
1. Prep hair with <a href='/index.php/products/view/66' target='_parent'>Signature Shampoo</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/64' target='_parent'>Conditioner</a> and rough dry the hair.<br />
2. Apply <a href='/index.php/products/view/48' target='_parent'>Crème for Style</a> all over the hair. The dampness in the hair will help ensure that the product is distributed evenly.<br />
3. Spray <a href='/index.php/products/view/2229' target='_parent'>Thick</a> into the hair section by section. <br />
4. Take random sections of hair and roll them into pin curls. Secure each section with a bobby pin. The key to this look is imperfect curls so don’t look in a mirror when you’re pinning. <br />
5. Let the hair air dry. The more time you give the hair to dry, the more hold you will have.<br />
6. Once dry, take the pins out. Use your fingers to gently pull the hair back at the nape of the neck into a loose bun with the ends out. <br />
7. Gently pull open the bun and create your desired shape. Tuck in the ends and pin into place with bobby pins.
  • <b>Bombshell Blowout</b><br />
“I love to prep the hair for a blowout with <a href='/index.php/products/view/2226' target='_parent'>Grandiose</a> because it enhances natural body and creates gorgeous volume,” says Ronnie. <br />
<br />
1. Prep hair with <a href='/index.php/products/view/63' target='_parent'>Shampoo</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/44' target='_parent'>Conditioner for Beautiful Color</a>. For extra-damaged hair, indulge your tresses with <a href='/index.php/products/view/54' target='_parent'>Masque for Beautiful Color</a> after shampooing. <br />
2. Towel dry and then apply a generous amount of <a href='/index.php/products/view/2226' target='_parent'>Grandiose</a> from roots to ends.<br />
3. Section the hair. The size of the brush will dictate the size of the sections. The bigger the brush, the bigger your sections will be. A medium 2-inch brush will give you the soft, sexy waves pictured.<br />
4. Blow dry the hair with your round brush. Make sure to overdirect at the roots for maximum volume. <br />
5. Finish by spraying <a href='/index.php/products/view/2229' target='_parent'>Thick</a> section by section at the roots. Since <a href='/index.php/products/view/2229' target='_parent'>Thick</a> lends a matte finish to hair, spray the layers underneath so strands stay shiny.
  • <b>Sleek and Full</b><br />
“I like this look because it’s versatile and can easily go day to night. A sharp hairstyle will immediately dress up anything you’re wearing,” says Oribe educator Kien Hoang. “This style is great because you look well groomed but not overdone.” <br />
<br />
1. Prep the hair with <a href='/index.php/products/view/66' target='_parent'>Signature Shampoo</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/64' target='_parent'>Conditioner</a> and then towel dry.<br />
2. Spray <a href='/index.php/products/view/2229' target='_parent'>Thick</a> into the roots and hairline and blow dry. This will leave the hair looking full and dense.<br />
3. Apply a small amount of <a href='/index.php/products/view/2228' target='_parent'>Surfcomber</a> to hair with fingers for texture and shine.
  • <b>Polished Waves</b><br />
“This look is great for guys with wavy hair,” says Kien. “I like the product pairing because it brings out the hair’s natural texture without being stiff.”<br />
<br />
1. Shampoo and condition hair with <a href='/index.php/products/view/66' target='_parent'>Signature Shampoo</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/64' target='_parent'>Conditioner</a>.<br />
2. Towel dry hair. Use your hands to find your natural part. Use a wide-tooth comb and distribute <a href='/index.php/products/view/48' target='_parent'>Crème for Style</a> through the hair. <br />
3. Sculpt the hair with your hands to encourage natural waves, then let air dry.<br />
3. For a night out, apply <a href='/index.php/products/view/72' target='_parent'>Supershine</a> to the hair for extra shine and to tame frizz.
  • <b>Tousled Waves</b><br />
“This look is perfect if you’re traveling somewhere tropical because humidity brings out the natural texture you want for these waves,” says Ronnie. <br />
<br />
1. Prep hair with <a href='/index.php/products/view/66' target='_parent'>Signature Shampoo</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/64' target='_parent'>Conditioner</a>, which will cleanse and condition without weighing your hair down. <br />
2. Apply <a href='/index.php/products/view/72' target='_parent'>Supershine</a> to damp hair section by section from midshaft to ends. Apply the product a small amount at a time—too much <a href='/index.php/products/view/72' target='_parent'>Supershine</a> will weigh down your hair.<br />
3. Apply a golf ball size of <a href='/index.php/products/view/2228' target='_parent'>Surfcomber</a>, scrunching it into the hair with a light hand to encourage natural movement. <br />
4. Rake your fingers through the hair to create sexy, tousled texture. Let your strands air dry for sexy, piecey separation.
