When America’s Next Top Model , Tyra Banks , needs to look ultra chic she calls upon our top stylist Sher Rae to give her that beautiful look that will keep her smiling for the cameras all night long!!
“I love to use Oribe Soft Lacquer Hairspray to starch the hair with a flat iron in wave like patterns” says Sher Rae. Starch you ask?? It is a sure way to maintain a great hairstyle that will out last any NYC event Sher Rae explains!
“First, I blow dry hair using Oribe Volumista Spray with a medium size round brush. After you have achieved the lift you want, go back in section-by-section with Oribe Soft Lacquer and a flat iron. Spray from about an arms distance and the heat will starch the hair in place! Once done use a Mason Pearson to brush out the heat.”
End result ….. As Tyra says, FIERCE!!!!
