Why Healthy Hair is Key for Styling
The perfect canvas for styling hair, is healthy hair. Without it, the manageability of the hair can dictate what can or cannot be done when it comes to styling. That’s why regular rebuilding treatments, whether at home with Olaplex No. 3 or in-salon Stand Alone Treatment are essential for all hair types. This helps keep the hair strong from thermal, environmental, mechanical, and chemical damage.
Okay, so now you have the ideal canvas. What about the look? We visited one of our favorite stylists, Joseph Orozco, to get the scoop. Josephs works at Meche Salon and is a pro when it comes to effortless styling and covetable cuts. Just look at his Instagram @hair_byjoseph for your next style inspo. Joseph shared his go-to tips on how to achieve his favorite L.A. look– tousled wavy hair.
“Healthy hair is the key to making your hair look good! I tell my clients to do treatments twice a week with Olaplex No.3, especially if they are getting it colored or putting a lot of heat to it. I also always recommend routine haircuts and a good shampoo and conditioner. It’s like being a hair doctor and prescribing the best prescription for my clients.”says Orozco.
For tousled hair, Joseph recommends using a volumizing moose and applying when hair is wet or dry. “It gives good hold and adds texture.” he says. Then blow dry the hair with a nozzle to help with control and direction. A really good brush will help you smooth the hair and give killer shine. Proceed to curl the hair (warning, you may have Prom Queen hair for a minute). Spray on a dry texturizing spray on the dry hair, use on roots and ends. Finally shake the hair out to get that tousled beach wave ready hair.
“For people with curly hair, apply Olaplex No.3 from mid shaft to ends. Then, use a volumizing moose from roots to ends (all of this should be done on damp hair). You can let it air dry or diffuse it with a blowdryer. This combination will give you voluminous yet tamed hair. Plus, the No.3 with give your hair the shine and life it needs!”
