MY KIT

“My tools today. I did a beautiful base in the hair by blow-drying with my Iles Formula Finishing Serum after shampooing and conditioning with my formulas. Then I used a medium-sized barrel [curling iron] to give beautiful movement.”

THE HAIR HOW-TO

“Starting to tong the hair after blow-drying. This was a coiffure that had to be chic and up and then cascade down at the after party into tumbling waves, so I chose this chignon method, making a double knot ponytail to create a wave in Heidi's hair. I then twisted the ends around the tail, creating more waves to the ends. So the chignon, although perfect for the carpet, is actually setting a wave in her hair for the after-party!”
