BEHIND THE SCENES BEAUTY Tutorial

PREP DAY FOR JOAN SMALLS

HAIRSTYLIST KAYLA MICHELE

PART 1 OF SEXY TOUSLED WAVES

CUSTOM WIG U-PARTING & EXTENSIONS

 
 

By Beauty Director Kayla MiChele    @kaylamichelehair

 

Take a look to experience an authentic, behind-the-scenes beauty prep day at my work studio located in the East Village neighborhood of New York City.

 

My team and I prepped the first look, consisting of extra long sexy tousled waves, for the exclusive DOCUMENTBEAUTY shoot starring Joan Smalls as Wildflower.

 

In part 1, you will see insider industry tricks for working with wigs to make them appear natural by cutting out a custom U-Part. You will also see how to glue hair extensions, which can be applied to a wig or even your own hair. Lastly, you will see how I slide cut the hair to create layers, blending the hair extensions in with the original length to help the weave look undetectable.

 

It’s a fun adventure sharing these very human and not overly-produced BTS moments with you. I hope you feel inspired to work with wigs and hair extensions, as I always find the alter ego of transformation to be quite thrilling.
