The X Factor 2014: Resident hair stylist Jamie Stevens reveals how to achieve Lauren Platt’s cascading curls
Resident hair stylist Jamie Stevens has revealed exactly how to get Lauren’s live show with three simple steps.
Step one: Preparation
This look works best on hair that has some natural-looking oomph so prep dry hair with TRESemme 24 Hour Body Blow Dry Lotion (RRP £5.50*), which also protects against heat damage and breakage, then roughly blow dry for textured hold.
Step two: The tricky bit
Use a round brush to blow dry hair smooth, before tonging two-inch sections of hair until all the hair is curled – for a modern finish, don’t curl the bottom inch of each section of hair. (At this stage, I added some clip-in extensions to Lauren’s shoulder length hair. If you wish to do the same, curl this hair too.)
Step three: The finishing touches
Sweep the hair over one shoulder, spritz with TRESemme Salon Shine Smooth Glossing Spray (RRP £4.99) and use a soft bristle brush to smooth any flyaways.
Spray with TRESemme Superior Hold Hairspray (RRP £4.99) to finish.
