Stephanie Brinkerhoff, associated with @hairandmakeupbySteph, introduces a tutorial on creating a “bridal wave” hairstyle, emphasizing its popularity and timeless appeal.
She begins by addressing the importance of volume and thickness in achieving the desired look, opting to incorporate clip-in extensions primarily at the back of the head to enhance fullness.
Stephanie demonstrates a meticulous process of backcombing the roots with Kenra Volume Spray 25 to create a solid foundation for securing the extensions, ensuring they do not slip out during styling.
Utilizing a one and a quarter inch wand, she curls sections of the hair in a twist-wrap technique, wrapping the hair flat around the wand while adding a slight twist with her wrist. This method aims to produce uniform waves with natural-looking ends.
Throughout the styling process, Stephanie highlights the significance of curl direction, consistently curling sections from left to right to maintain consistency in the final wave pattern.
She advises against curling sections near the face, instead keeping them tucked behind the ears to achieve a seamless, elegant finish.
After curling all sections, Stephanie meticulously brushes out the curls using a bristle brush, ensuring smoothness and uniformity in the waves.
For final touches, she applies Kenra Platinum Working Wax 15 to smooth any flyaways and enhance shine, before securing the style with additional Kenra Volume Spray 25 and pins.
