With effortless styles being all the rage this year, Mara shared the vision for Alana’s hair was inspired by her disco ball-esque custom Louis Vuitton gown.

Products Used



Prep hair by shampooing with Wella Professionals Elements Renewing Shampoo and Conditioner for a cleansed, healthy-looking base. 


While hair is still damp, apply Roz St. Lucia Styling Oil from the mid-lengths through the ends for shine and hydration. 


For buildable volume, next, apply Wella EIMI Root Shoot Precise Root Mousse before blowdrying. 


Using a round brush, blow out the hair until thoroughly dry. Set hair with velcro rollers to lock in volume and create a base for the 70s inspired glam waves. 


To finish the style, use L’Oreal Professionnel STEAMPOD Flat Iron & Styler to smooth out any flyaways created from the rollers and add definition through the ends of the waves. 


Lastly, set hair with Wella Professionals EIMI Stay Firm Workable Finishing Hairspray to add texture and movement for waves that last.
