…Retro Redo

What goes around…comes back even better! The Nicky Oliver Styling team redefines the classic “roller set” into a mane infused with shape, body and bold attitude. Layers throughout this crop are set on large rods then released—but not blended. Instead, texture is maintained with resulting curls left individually defined. Hairspray veils the look for hold as does select hidden hair pins to preserve each curl’s shape.
