The Stefani Bump

Sam Villa

Author Sam Villa | CO-FOUNDER SAM VILLA©


Gwen Stefani has managed to stay true to herself and her style for over a decade now.  She’s easily known for her classic red lips and platinum locks.  Want to know how to create one of her many fun hairstyles?  Here’s how to get the “Stefani Bump” instead of the “Snooki Bump”!

Using your fingers, find the “Mohawk” section of your head.  If your hairline naturally recedes, use that line.  You can also find it either by the arch of your eyebrows or where your head starts to round.

Create a horseshoe shaped section on the top of your head.

Sharai-0690

Taking 1” horizontal sections throughout the horseshoe section, spray Redken Quick Tease 15 at the roots to give texture to the base.

Sharai-0694

Following the same 1” sections using the fine teeth of your Sam Villa Short Styling Comb to backcomb the base of each section until you get to the front.

Now to the sides… spray a moderate amount of Redken Fashion Work 12 hairspray through the sides and slick straight back with the Sam Villa Styling Brush.

Sharai-0721

Immediately use your Sam Villa Professional Ionic Blow Dryer to set the hairspray and maintain the shape.

Sharai-0725

Use your Sam Villa Styling Brush to gently smooth the top layer of your horseshoe section without pulling any backcombing out.

Sharai-0730

Pulling sides back as smooth and tight as possible, crisscross two bobby pins to secure into place.

Sharai-0751

Make sure the top and sides are somewhat connected with no obvious spaces or holes.
