Follow the steps below to copy Chelsea's long straight hair.
Step By Step Instructions
Start by detangling hair with fingers or a wide tooth comb to remove knots, snarls and tangle. If hair is fragile it might be advisable to pre-oil the hair with a light jojoba oil or apply it just to dry or crunchy ends.
Wash hair in lukewarm water with the shampoo product designed for your hair type, texture and condition. If you wish, utilize your unique washing program ranging from full shampoo to Diluted Shampoo (DS), low poo, Conditioner Only Wash (CO Wash), no poo or water only.
Note: If you have chemically colored hair like Chelsea does it would be best to use either a highly diluted moisturizing shampoo, do a conditioning only wash (CO Wash) or use a product line specifically designed to preserve this type of hair.
Rinse out shampoo (if used) and then apply a rinse out conditioner from the tops of the ears down to the ends and detangle with a wide tooth comb or fingers.
After hair is detangled rinse well and then finish with a cool or cold water rinse. Towel blot (don't rub) to remove excess moisture. If the hair is washed with a Conditioner Only Wash (CO Wash) then detangle at the end of the cleansing cycle.
Apply your designed styling cocktail to your hair working it through with fingers or a wide tooth comb. Your idea cocktail to re-create Chelsea's hairstyle might consist of, but not be limited to, leave-in conditioner, defristant, styling mousse and a volumizing spray for roots to get a fuller look throughout the base. Since chemically colored hair is dry and fragile, be sure to use moisturizing products.
Separate hair into 8-10 individual sections. Create desired part. Use a 100% boar bristle paddle or flat brush in conjunction with a blow dryer. Direct the blow dryer air flow from the roots down to the ends to create a sleek straight finish.
To get lots of volume throughout the crown area you may prefer to separate hair into 1-2" sections and blow dry with a bristle round brush. Once each section is dry then roll around fingers into a big barrel curl pinned against the scalp allowing hair to completely cool and set.
Unpin all sections of dry hair. Iron each of the sections with a flat iron. Arrange with fingers. Apply 1-2 drops of shine serum into the palms of your hands. Brush lightly to style.
SummaryWhen Chelsea wears her hair long and straight it offers her the option to easily pull it back towards the nape of the neck for a soft twist, chignon or bun. For to change up the look play with adding hair accessories or going with a side part or fringe.
