Ulla Johnson A/W 2015 Joseph DiMaggio for Davines Get The Look



Show: Ulla Johnson A/W 2015

Lead Hair Stylist: Joseph DiMaggio, Master Session Ambassador for Davines North America

Inspiration: “The warm colors and earthy comfort of the collection seemed to flow into the beautiful florals displayed at the presentation. I wanted the hair to emulate this flowing concept, so I choose to create something that had a natural wave and lived in texture. The collaborative process with Ulla allowed me to create something that was one with the clothes. Young, fresh, new.” ~ Lead Stylist, Joseph DiMaggio

Hair Step-by-Step:

Step 1 – Part the hair down the center of the head, creating a natural part.

Step 2 – Once the hair has been parted, separate the hair into three sections. Two in the front, from the center part directly down to behind the ears, and a third in the back, with the remaining hair.

Step 3 – Apply Davines More Inside This Is a Texturizing Dust to roots and massage in.

Step 4 – Using a half full bottle of Davines Essential VOLU Mist, dispense More Inside This is a Volume Boosting Mousse into the spray bottle until full. Allow mixture to liquefy. Spray evenly throughout layers, from root to tip. **Pro Tip: This combination of product offers the memory and hold of mousse with the volume of a mist.

Step 5 – Gather 2-inch vertical panels of hair starting at the crown, pull straight up and twist counter clockwise. Continue all over head.

Step 6 – Gently gather all twisted sections into a large ponytail on top of head and twist clockwise. Secure in a very loose topknot and pin.

Step 7 – Allow hair to set (dry), and then remove pins. Gently brush hair out and create a perfect center part.

Step 9 – Finger rake to allow the texture to come to life.

Step 10 – Finish with Davines This is a Medium Hold Spray to lock in the definition and texture.

  • Davines More Inside This Is A Volume Boosting Mousse ($34)
