Scarlet Merlot Waves from Wella Professionals

Summer is all about basking in the glow of the sun and swimming in the pool. But fun in the sun can take a toll on your client’s hair, leaving it brittle, faded and dry. What’s a stylist to do? Help restore their hair to its natural, rich and luxurious condition with a little help from Wella Professionals LuxeOil Collection. The oils penetrate the hair shaft, delivering moisture and nutrients for soft, smooth locks. Once her hair is restored, update her color with this deep, scarlet merlot shade—perfect for the fall season. Add in some loose, voluminous waves to give her some red-carpet glam.

    1. Start at the nape making horizontal sections to define the outline sitting just below the shoulder. Work your way up to the crown and connect the sides. The sides are directed to the back to create a corner in front of the ear.

    2. Once that is done, take diagonal sections at the front from the center, parting down to the ear, parallel to the hairline.

    3. Cut the perimeter line from the mouth level down to the corner at the ear created by the first line. Follow the same technique on either side. Take pie-shaped section around the crown to layer the tip of the hair and create more movement.
