For this casual look we went with a loose fishtail braid leaving a little bit of hair loose around the face. The makeup was natural on the eyes with a fresh pink lip. Nails were painted a dark grey and to give the nails an extra bit of fun factor a thin line of red was painted down the side of the nail.
For this amazing sleek look we went with Emily’s hair down and styled with large loose waves. We got this by first giving the hair a spray of Shaping Hair Spray and then went over all the hair with the ConiCurl. Once the hair set and cooled a quick and easy shake of the hair and it was fantastic. For her makeup the only change we did was pump up the lip color a bit by using a lovely deep red.
It was fun to do something a little different with Emily’s hair for these looks. We gathered the back section of hair into a ponytail and then by taking smaller sections of the hair and twisting and pinning it into a free formed bun. The front section of hair was put into three different braids that we then twisted around the top crown of her head and pinned them down. All this look needed when it was done was a little High Gloss Hair Spray and she was ready to go.

With Emily’s hair for this final look we went with a beautiful structured high bun. This is easy and quick by putting the hair in a high ponytail and working your way around by using sections and rolling them into a smooth curl and pinning that down. Another spray of Shaping Hair Spray and the look was prefect.
