Want to achieve this wave? Try not being so perfect. Curl mid-strand down, instead of starting at the root. Then, comb your fingers through the hair and mess it up! Use a flexible hold hairspray, such as TIGI Hair Reborn’s Flexible Finishing Hairspray.
Having trouble getting your hair to lay how YOU want it to lay? If your hair flips out when straightening hair towards your face, try flat ironing AWAY from the face. Sometimes it helps to use a little reverse psychology with your follicles.
TIGI and Maybelline Create a Mystic Look With Hair Chains and Bold Liner at Mara Hoffman
For Mara Hoffman’s F/W ‘13 collection, TIGI lead stylist Nick Owen and Maybelline lead artist Charlotte Willer conjured up a runway full of what they called “mystic gypsies.” For the hair, Owen used TIGI Catwalk Session Series Styling Cream to create “shiny, really polished hair on the top.” Next, sections of hair from the bottom were twisted with TIGI mousse to create “a rope-like texture.” Once hair set, sections were pulled apart and a chain was added from ear to ear.
Willer used gel liner on the eye to create a modified cat eye—pulling the liner straight out from the middle of the eye. She combined concealer and Color Sensational Lipcolor in Totally Toffee for a muted beige lip.

Frizz problems? Rinse your hair with cool water. Before your finish up your shower routine, run some cool water over your hair for a few seconds. It helps seal the cuticle, adding a sleeker and softer look/feeling to your hair.
