Hair stylist to the stars Neil Moodie rough-dried Emma’s hair after spritzing it with some Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray.
Next, he took the WAM 28mm Curling Iron and curled random sections of Emma’s hair, from mid-lengths to ends. “This created texture and movement,’ says Moodie. He then tied a small braid on each side of her head, securing each one with an elastic.
After backcombing the hair at Emma’s crown to create more texture, he took 2cm-wide sections of hair and began pinning them up. To keep the look ‘homemade’ and ‘not too perfect,’ he pinned the hair diagonally across her head, pinning sections from the right to the left and vice a versa. “Be prepared for lots of pins,” he warns.
For the finishing touch, Moodie took a very long piece of red cord and wrapped it around the front of her head to underneath the nape of her neck. “I then wrapped it around her head a second time, this time a little further back, before knotting it underneath the hair at the nape of her neck,” he says.
