How To Score Her Red-Carpet Coif!



Music star Tinashe looked stunning when she graced the red carpet at the 2016 BET Awards last night. Her mane move, courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Marcia Hamilton, was based on a sultry, waved bob. Here, the mane pro shares how to get Tinashe’s sexy coif with just a few easy steps and the right products:

Step 1: Apply dime size amount of KeraCare Silken Seal and blow dry hair. Part hair on the right side and lightly flat iron hair.

Step 2: Starting from the top, take a 2-inch section of hair and spray on KeraCare Styling Spritz. Wrap hair twice around a one-inch wand, holding it for a few seconds. Work your way from the top to bottom repeating the same technique.

Step 3: Let the hair sit for a few minutes before combing it through. Finish with KeraCare Finishing Spray for lasting hold. “I love that KeraCare products are not greasy,” notes Hamilton about her choice for styling products for this look. The result: stunning, sexy hair worthy of a red-carpet appearance!
