Day 1581 - Wella Pro Series

How to have straight hair with volume

Now before I start, I must stress ... I am NOT a hairdresser.  The following post is coming from a mum who needed to do her daughter's hair so that it looked all straight and lovely and with a bit of "air" in it, not from an expert in the field.  Having said that, Wella Pro made me feel like an expert in the field.

Wella contacted me and said "hey Leanne, do you want to try out the new Wella Pro range?" and I said "I'd love to, but rather than make it a Deep Fried defying middle age thing, how about we make it a lovely young model thing instead". And they said "tell us more", so I said "my daughter is a model and she has an upcoming shoot for a new handbag label, would you like to sponsor her hair?" to which they said "sure! Let's sponsor her hair", and I went "coolies" and they went "awesomeness" and I said "totes" and they said "amazeballs".  

Of course the conversation went nothing like that.  But you get my drift.

So Wella Pro sent Tahlia Jane a bunch of stuff including:

  • Wella Pro Series Shine Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Wella Pro Series Volume Hairspray
  • Wella Pro Series Volume Mousse
On the day of the shoot she washed her hair using the Wella Pro products and then I set about straightening her hair from it's usually wavy style, to a dead straight look.

This is Tahlia's hair when it dries naturally.

This is how we went about getting it all straight and volumey.

I started by blow drying it to almost dry

I used the Wella Pro Volume Mousse at the roots and then I spread it through to the tips

More blow drying while I lifted the hair at the roots and sprayed it with Wella Pro Volume Hairspray

After the hair was dry I separated the hair and sprayed each section with Wella Pro Volume Hairspray before straightening each section with the hair straightener.

I then straightened the hair one layer at a time (while Tahlia read her book)

And finally, after each layer, I brushed the hair out and sprayed it with Wella Pro Volume Hairspray, smoothing it with my hand as I went to get rid of any fuzz.

And Voila! The end result was perfectly straight hair with enough volume to avoid the "limp" look that straightened hair can often have.
