Look 1 — Classic Pony-tail
Prep the hair with Label.M Volume Mousse, then blow-dry flat to the head in a side parting. Tie a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, and secure with elastic. Complete the look with hairspray and Shine Mist. Note, when tying the pony, don’t just use rubber bands and with two pins on each side; instead, take one long string of elastic and wrap around the hair to tie into a knot. This makes the pony much cleaner.
Look 2 — Curled Bob
Smoothen the hair and add volume with mousse, and curl with a curling iron. Add coloured hair extensions to the front, and twist all the way back in a side parting. Then roll all the hair under the nape to resemble a bob. End look is crazy, voluminous curls in a short bob-like style.
Look 3 — Crazy Curls
This look is not for the faint-hearted — think Helena Bonham-Carter from Sweeney Todd. Apply Label.M Volume Mousse to hair and curl with a curling iron. Then knot it so it lies flat in the back, with lots of width on the side.
Look 4 — Modernal Pony-Tail
This look is the stark ‘modernal ponytail.’ Start with Label.M Volume Mousse to make it all heavy and then brush it through evenly; stick wax at the roots and then pull the hair up into a pony-tail through a metal cuff. Pad out the hair and rub some wax through it to give it a bit of volume and then secure it through the cuff and iron it smooth. Finish it with some Label.M Shine Spray.
Look 5 — Motown Moment
The look is Diana Ross from The Supremes: big, power-hair with lots of curls and masses of volume. Start by prepping the hair with Label.M Volume Mousse and blow drying it through. Next, divide the hair into small sections and use two different sized curling tongs — extra small and small — to create natural, tight-looking curl. Then pin each curl into place and let it cool down. Once it’s cool, remove the pins and massage the roots to make the hair stand. Finish with Label.M Shine Spray to complete that giant Motown look.
