Harry Josh is known as one of Hollywood’s mane men.. He works with Kate Hudson, Ellen Pompeo, Karlie Kloss, and he’s best known for Gisele Bundchen’s beachy waves…
His new hair wand is out tomorrow, and he stopped by to show us a few tricks. You can buy it at Dermstore.com
Carefree beachy waves are NOT just for summer. Long, loose curls and waves are effortlessly cool year-round and nobody rocks them better than a west coast girl. For this look a curling iron is key - I JUST created my own curling iron (Harry Josh Protools 21-in-1 Marcel Curling Iron, $175, Dermstore.com). There are two misconceptions about creating beachy waves - one is that you want a wide barrel when in fact, hair is incredibly easy to manipulate when it's hot. A smaller barrel, like one-inch, gives you variety. Your hair will "drop" aka the curl will loosen as the day goes on, but after you remove your hair from the barrel (harry to be demoing this explanation), pull at the end to stretch out the curl just so. Voila - just make sure you are wrapping your hair in the same direction for each piece on the same side. Second misconception is that your hair needs to be curled after it's blown straight - untrue. Again, when heat is transferred to hair, it's much easier to manipulate. Feel free to use an iron on hair that is a little wavy or unruly. You'll still get great results.

Polished, glamorous waves are making a comeback. It's a style that really translates well from day to night because it can look clean and polished enough for work but definitely sexy for night. The key to this look is smooth, frizz-free hair. Apply John Frieda Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz Ease Frizz Immunity Primer as soon as you get out of the shower to seal in smooth style before you blow dry hair straight. Next, curl hair in sections - the heat from the iron will leave hair super shiny and bouncy. (Harry will demo how to iron with the clamp)
A lot of women feel obligated to leave their hair down when the weather gets a bit cooler - pulling your hair back doesn't have to be a thing of convenience just when you're hot. A messy chignon is a great alternative to wearing your hair down - it looks cool but leaving the hair textured and almost loose shows that you don’t care too much but still want to look good. Wave hair or embrace natural texture and pull back into a low ponytail. Leave a few strands out to frame the face. Wrap the hair around the base of the ponytail holder and secure with pins. Take a curling iron to define the pieces around the face.
