Welcome to Words From The Wise, Spoiled Pretty’s new weekly advice column!
Many of you have some serious issues…beauty issues, that is. And as much as I want to help, I am no expert. I’m just a gal with a dream of someday being (accidentally) locked in Sephora overnight. So to solve your beauty dilemmas, I’ve called in reinforcements.
Spoiled Pretty is consulting with some of the biggest names in the biz - to answer your burning beauty questions. So get out your steno pad and sharpen your #2 pencil. The pros are about to drop some knowledge. Prepare to get schooled.
Spoiled Pretty reader, Amanda, writes:
"My hair question has to do with my unruly bangs. What products do you recommend I use in the morning to get them nice and side-swept, just like I came out of the salon? I just can't seem to get it right."
David Babaii, celebrity hair stylist (his client list includes Kate Hudson, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Gwyneth Paltrow) and co-founder of David Babaii for WildAid, shares these tips for controlling bothersome bangs:
“To tame those wild bangs, wet your bangs only and spray a small amount of David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray at the roots and on the hair shaft. With a round brush and your David Babaii for WildAid Blow Dryer on medium heat, blow dry the roots first to add volume brushing hair in the opposite direction of your natural part to create movement. When hair is mostly dry, hold the brush vertically and wrap your bangs around it towards the side where you want your hair to be parted. Point the blow dryer down and aim a blast of hot air on the brush to smooth the hair cuticle and set the slight wave in your hair. Continue to blow dry and pull hair to the side until you're satisfied. Finish with a small amount of David Babaii for WildAid Hair Polish on the ends to separate and add definition.”
David isn’t just generous with advice…he’s also gifting Amanda with David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray, Hair Dryer and Hair Polish - so that she can achieve salon results at home!
Many thanks to David Babaii for his invaluable beauty tips and for spoiling Amanda pretty!
