  • First, Newkirk applied a good amount of John Frieda Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Mousse throughout Jessica’s wet hair to shape her waves.
  • Then, he used a large round brush and hairdryer to provide some structure.
  • Newkirk gave Jessica an extreme side part and started working his way around her head, curling small sections with a ¾-inch barrel iron.  Then he let the curls set and cool for a few minutes.
  • Next, he brushed out the curls with a flat brush and applied John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-up Crème for a smooth and shiny texture.  He started rolling up sections from ear to ear, along the bottom edge of her hairline, and securing with bobby pins.
  • Lastly, he sprayed John Frieda Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray to lock the style in place.

    I love her hair style, it’s lovely. I wish I could do that to my hair.

    I love that hair style I cant wait for my hair to be longer enough to try this very sexy

    • It is pretty, I think it would make a beautiful wedding style. Thank you for stopping by.

    This is a style that I love. I think the back of the hair hangs down a little too low for my taste, but the side and front are just gorgeous. I would hope I could re-create this look for a wedding I’m attending this month.

    • Hi Angela,

      Were you able to try this style out? It’s so pretty! Perfect for an evening or even for a bride!

        Hi Tracey! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to recreate this look. It always seems that when I really want to try a new style I never get it right. I ended up going with my ‘go to’ style. Half pinned up with bobby pins and lots of volume up on top. I will let you know if I do get it right though!
