My hairstylist Etienne Ortega had CUT all my hair off a few days before the event, so I rocked a much shorter version of my larger than life Texas hair.
I get tons of questions asking how we get the hair so BIG. I have tried to write blog posts in the past addressing it, but here's the cliffs note version of what you need:
2. Hair Spray, and
3. Clip in Extensions
Any girl that loves big hair needs a good pair of clip ins. I'm not a big fan of permanent extensions as I feel it's unnecessary to have all that hair 24 hours a day (when you sleep for example). Plus, it is really damaging for your natural hair.
First we curl the extensions (before we put them on my head), then we curl my own hair, and apply the extensions. Once they're all in, we tease at the root, and then apply lots of hair spray to hold it (my favorite is Paul Mitchell). Once we are finished styling, we go a step further to make it extra big by flipping my head upside down and then giving it one final good all over spray.
My makeup for the event was done by Rokael Lizama, and for this look we decided to go super light on the eye makeup. Almost no shadow, or eyeliner, and barely any Lilly Lashes (I think we used 1 strip instead of the usual 3 lol).
