Taylor Swift marked her return to the red carpet at 2018 Billboard Music Awards and it was worth the wait. Wearing a muted pink gown, Taylor complemented her look with an elegant updo and hair color. Recreate the new Taylor Swift hair color and style with these tips.
Paint the hair with O&M Paint Powder Clay Lightener and O&M CØR.color 30 vol Activator starting at eye level working down, paying attention to the ends to add brightness to the ends. Process for 40-50 minutes to get maximum lift and clean blonde. Detox and condition before you tone using O&M CØR.color 8.03 Light Beige Blonde and O&M CØR.color 5 vol Activator at roots then O&M CØR.color 9.03 Very Light Beige Blonde and O&M CØR.color 5 vol Activator through ends. Mix 2 parts O&M CØR.color 5 vol Activator, 1 part color. Process for 20 minutes then use O&M The Power Base Protein Treatment as treatment. This will strengthen the hair with rice protein and soften it with shea butter.
Use O&M Know Knott Detangling Spray and O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz to dry hair to 80%. Then use more Atonic to give hold and heat protection as you dry hair, stretching out and creating soft curls on the ends with a medium size round brush. Natural bristles will help smooth and polish the hair without too much heat. Once dry, create a low side part then reinforce the curl using a barrel curler in medium size, from mids to ends.
To create the updo at the back, twist hair onto itself and pin, hair panel by hair panel, allowing the style to build on itself. All hair should be pinned and twisted to create this look. Allow pieces of hair to fall and soften the look. Once all hair is secured at the nape, spray with O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray. The Lily Pilly in it helps give fullness to the hairstyle.
