P&G's Olympic-Inspired Hair How-To:
When thinking about a monumentally inspirational event and the Olympics certainly tops the charts. And stylists from P&G got to experience that inspiration first hand. In a massive undertaking, almost as big as the games themselves, the company brought an international team of colorists and stylists to the London 2012 Olympics to provide makeovers on the athletes and their families—from hair services and skin treatments to grooming, color and even Olympic-themed manicures. The makeover team even created a few looks inspired by the sights, sounds, sports and spirit that only the Olympics can offer. Here’s their take on the "Equestrian" look!
The Look: Equestrian
Creator: Rebecca Lee | Dale James Hair & Beauty | Perth, Australia
What it is: A Grecian-style rope braided headband, inspired by elegant dressage horses, that reflects a serene, goddess vibe.
Step 1: Prepare dry, freshly washed hair with Wella Professionals Perfect Setting. Start by making a center parting and put half of the hair up horizontally with a section clip, then divide the bottom half of the hair into two sections.
Step 2: Braid each section of hair into a tight braid and secure with an elastic band. Spray with Wella Professionals Stay Styled Finishing Spray.
Step 3: Wrap the left braid across the head to the right side, secure the end of the braid behind the ear with a bobby pin. Then repeat the same for the other side, making sure you overlap the braid over each other on top of the head. Lightly spray with Wella Professionals Stay Styled Finishing Spray to hold in place.
Step 4: Once the braids are secure take the rest of the hair out and braid the entire section. Then place and arrange it into a bun at the nape of the head and secure with a bobby pin. Spray hair with more Wella Professionals Stay Styled Finishing Spray and for extra shine mist the hair with Wella Professionals Shimmer Delight.
