We all want what we don’t have. Women with curly hair want straight hair, women with pin straight hair wish to have curls. Sounds familiar? Gioia, one of Dino’s regular clients, makes no exception from this rule. In addition to her typical hair routine consisting of haircut, single process and balayage highlights, Gioia comes in for blowouts often. Yes, she likes her curly mane sleek and straight.
One day, Dino put his foot down and decided to take Gioia back to her roots. He dried her natural and accentuated the movement of her hair with the curling iron. That’s how this photo shoot happened.
Top stylist Dino Mastrogiovanni’s tips for curly hair:
“Not all curls are made the same. Some curls are coarse and unruly, other curls are weak and limp with little definition. One of my favorite hair line for curly hair is Fresh Curl by Redken.
Wash and condition your hair with Fresh Curl. Towel dry gently and flip your head upside down to create volume and movement at the roots. If you have curly, coarse and unruly hair like Gioia’s, apply Fresh Curl Refiner starting from the ends and going up the hair shaft. Keep it very light as you go closer to the scalp. Comb your hair softly with a very wide tooth comb. Don’t forget that less is more. Air dry naturally if you don’t own a hair diffuser. HOT TIP: TOUCH YOUR HAIR AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE. Once in a while, spread your fingers and lift your hair at the roots without really touching the curls. To define and make your curls smooth looking, take random hair strands and wrap them gently around a curling iron, like I did with Gioia. Finish with INFINIUM 3 hair spray from TEXTURE EXPERT brand by L’Oreal Professionel.
Love your hair, love yourself. Mamma Mia, Che Bella!”
