LADY IN RED
Crystal Franklin of Paparazzi Beauty Bar in Oakland, CA, creates a bold red hue on a lovely wavy silhouette.
You’ll have everyone’s attention as the lady in red. Bonded extensions are shaded in two hues of red—fire engine on the top and a deeper cherry-red on the bottom. Long locks are cut into layers all over and then curled with a 1.5” curling iron. For perfect coils, pull the iron straight out, leaving the full curl formation and clip curls to the head in order to set. Use hands to loosen and fashion the perfect style. To DIY, add a bit of shine serum for a polished look. A Wrap at night will loosen curls overtime, but locks will still maintain their flowing waves.

Mane maven Shedelle Holmes shares these tips for weaving like a pro…
SPEND SMART: “Purchasing human hair extensions is a good investment. [They] last up to a year with proper care and you won’t need to purchase new bundles of hair every time you want to re-do the weave.”
TURN UP THE VOLUME: “If you want your hair extremely full, have your stylist double up some of your track from the nape of your neck to the temple area…an additional three to four ounces will give you extra volume.”
