New York Fashion Week may be winding down, but the hot celebrity looks are still turning up. Even in the midst of jam-packed schedules and temperatures that stayed well below freezing point, somehow the starlets always hit the scene with perfect hair and makeup. Luckily, we were able to catch up with the beautiful Porsha Williams and her talented hairstylist, Troy Turner, at Lincoln Center to find out the beauty secrets that keep her soft waves in place while on the go.
First, don’t skip any prepping steps before you start styling your hair. Troy recommends using a leave-in treatment on clean hair to minimize the risk of heat damage. The hair pro evenly sprayed Porsha’s strands with Crème of Nature Argan Oil Perfect 7-in-1 Leave-in Treatment, which not only protects from extreme temperatures, but also adds shine.
To recreate Porsha’s loose ringlets you’ll need a 2-inch barrel curling iron. “The trick to creating the wave pattern is to forget the clamp and wrap sections around the entire barrel as if it were a wand,” says Troy. A wide-tooth comb should be used to further separate curls and Biosilk Silk Polish to keep frizz at bay.
Porsha’s glamorous waves stay camera ready with the help of Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play. It offers just the right amount of hold while still leaving room for a bouncy hair-flip. What we love best about this style is that you don’t have to waste time or add too much heat by curling everyday. Troy suggests two strand twists before you hit the bed to hold the waves throughout the night.
Have fun recreating the style and let us know your tips below!
