Get-The-Look – Kylie Jenner’s “Undone” Waves
Kylie Jenner has quickly become a trendsetter and icon for all things beauty. Her edgy, fashion-forward style has garnered the attention of the younger generation and her evolving look is often requested in the salon. Kiley Potter, one of our Artistic Directors here at FHI Brands, tells us how to achieve this look and her smooth, effortless waves.
CG: Why do you think young clients look to Kylie Jenner as a style role model?
KP: Young clients look to Kylie as a style role model because they have watched her grow over the years from an awkward teen into a beautiful, strong independent, business minded, young woman. She was the baby of the family, yet she was able to find her own style and then begin to set a standard. She isn’t concerned with what is popular in the moment, she is the one setting the trends. She was one of the first to really popularize wigs and not be afraid to change her look daily. She makes herself accessible to her fans, and people respect that and feel connected to her.
CG: How can someone re-create this look?
1. Begin prepping the hair with Stylus ‘Fresh Start’ Protective Prep and Primer, and ‘Full Blown’ Blow Out Volumizing Mousse. Apply to damp, towel-dried hair.
2. After getting most of the moisture out, begin blow drying by flat wrapping the hair around the head in all directions to give movement and body until 100% dry.
3. Next, using the FHI 1″ Glamour Curling Rod curl large, roughly 2 inch vertical sections of hair near the midlengths, leaving 2-3 inches of hair at the base and ends out to be a little be straighter. When curling, wrap the hair around the Glamour Rod and hold for 5-7 seconds.
4. Finally, finish with Stylus ‘Stay Beautiful’ Light Hold Dry Hair Spray and ‘Shine Express’ Instant Shine Mist for a long-lasting and touchable style. This will help create that undone, carefree look.
