HOW-TO: Taylor's Curly CMA Looks

By Kelly Cison

At last week’s CMA Awards, the biggest entertainers in country music pulled out the stops for the red carpet. We saw one mini hair trend we were loving: Both “Entertainer of the Year” winner Taylor Swift and co-host Carrie Underwood wore pinned-back curls that were sweet yet sophisticated…and each star put her own twist on the look.
Read on to find the steps to recreate both versions!
Steps by L’Oreal Professional Portfolio Artist Jennifer MacDougall
To do:
1. This hairstyle is styled with a 1 ¼-inch curling iron; to hold those curls, use L’Oreal Professionnel Mousse Voulpte and blow dry into the hair.
2. Section the hair starting at the nape. Take 1-2 inch sections and lightly spray with L’Oreal Professionnel Infinium (2 Hold) and then wrap the hair around the curling iron.
3. Pin each curl with a pin curl clip to set the hair. Continue curling each piece, spraying Infinium and pinning.
4. When the whole head is curled, release the pins.
5. Add 1-2 pumps of Mythic Oil and run your fingers through the curls to add shine, separate the curls and to keep frizz away.
6. Wrap and twist one side back and secure with bobby pins. Wrap the other side and twist back and secure at the nape.
7. Finish with Infinium (3 Hold).

My New Love.....

Clean beauty is a timeless favourite and styling the hair with large barrel irons and then brushing it into a silky wave is breathtaking. I used Mythic Oil by L'Oreal Professionnel to add shine and it is suitable to all types of hair. My new Love.....

L.A.M.B. and L'Oreal VIP EVENT , St.Petersburg, FL

Our last L.A.M.B./ L'Oreal Professionnel fashion show featuring INOA Ammonia free hair colour was an over sold out night at "The Venue" in St. Petersburg. It was a special VIP invitation only cocktail party for the top L'Oreal Professional salons in the Tampa area.

Our L'Oreal Professional host salon was Disco Dolls and yes there is actually a disco ball in the salon with a remote control. Maxwell just opened at his new location 408 N. Howard Ave, Tampa FL a couple of months ago, Leigh Ann is his partner and she creates and retails beautiful fashion accessories and clothing there also. It has a fun energy and vintage feel.

If you are in the Tampa area and want INOA ammonia free hair colour or the best blow dry ever....make and appointment with Maxwell at Disco Dolls +813 641 4367.

The models that were colored with INOA haircolor were thrilled with the results of their new shiny haircolor. There were hugging us and and loving the results !

This is Brynna and she was so scared about coloring her hair as she had never ever colored it before. She was worried it would damage her hair or that she would have to maintain it frequently.  I consulted with her and explained that INOA with 10 volume would even out her light ends and would actually make her hair healthier and shinier due to INOA's oil delivery system.

INOA in Milwaukee ....

Milwaukee , Wisconsin...I think the 23rd US State that I have been now. The only thing I knew about Milwaukee was the old TV show "Happy Days" and 'The Fonze"
 It's always exciting to explore in a new city.  I was flown in for a special L'Oreal Professionnel Event for Erik of Norway Salon.  The top colorists from there 2 locations were discovering the revolution of INOA hair color.
What is the benefit of using INOA in a salon ? Well just a few benefits are that there is no odor from the color, no sensitivity for the scalp and the hair is in better condition after consecutive applications of INOA.
 It really is the way of the future in hair color and no other color company has anything like it.
 Look for a salon near you that has INOA and if you are in the Milwaukee area go to Erik of Norway Salon, it is a beautiful salon with an amazing talent of hairstylists.

I stayed at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee and wow what a spot. Totally romantic and victorian. It was a nice change from the usual hotels. In the hotel lobby bar there was a beautiful atmosphere , fresh red roses on every table and a piano player named Dan that had the whole place smiling.
I played a duet with him and he sang a song for my friend Shellie making up the words as he went along. So much fun !

The beautiful blonde in the back was sipping a vodka on the rocks and always enjoys listening to Dan play the piano at The Pfister.
Now you know I had to get her to model her outfit....she was so fab !
