How do we support the finished look of a pompadour without a lot of pomades, gels and waxes that result in shapes that do not move around?
How do we attain the look with more texture and volume and at the same time have it look light and airy with a good foundation?
What we want to offer you is an alternative styling technique utilizing tools and medium hold styling products that will ensure longevity of the style for our guests without the stiff touch, look and feel. Sam Villa ArTeam member, David Boyd will take us on a little journey that will set us up for success!
Knowing that styling products are a necessity, not an option, we begin knowing Davids model has fine hair that is color treated with high lift color. A thermal protector is key for protection from the heat of the blow dryer to maintain the integrity of the cuticle as well as volumizing products that will also impart texture.
Begin by setting the foundation to result in a natural fall to the finished look with a directional blow dry to dry the hair 15-20%
Next, move on to completing the blow dry by instilling movement into each section with the Sam Villa 9-Row Finishing Brush:
You can now see there is a medium level of lift in the hair. The pulling and folding of the outside sections incorporate a soft look with the element of movability as well as control and precision. Light and airy texture has staying power due to the finishing products combined with the Sam Villa Professional Ionic Blow Dryer. The directional blow dry and maneuvering of the Sam Villa Paddle Brush set the foundation and the Sam Villa 9-Row Finishing brush completed the shape with added volume.
