“I wanted the look to be effortless, but constructed at the same time,” said Mancuso. “To soften Abbie’s updo, I created classic finger waves, then shook them out for an ethereal, romantic finish.”

Kevin Mancuso shares the steps to recreate the look at home:

PREP: Apply a generous amount of Nexxus ProMend Split End Binding Bodifying Mousse all over damp hair to bind damaged ends back together while creating texture and body.   


·         Blow dry hair, massaging mousse in at the roots to increase volume.

·         Use a medium round brush to smooth small sections of hair into velcro rollers for more body. Let rollers cool to set the curl while you apply makeup.

·         Remove rollers and apply a small amount of ProMend Split End Binding Smoothing Shine Serum throughout for healthy, luminous shine.

·         Now use a small barrel curling iron to create waves in the front section of your hair.

·         Back comb the rest of your hair and spray with Nexxus Comb Thru Touchable Finishing Mist for extra support and light hold.

·         Pin sections of hair up, working around to the back of your head, gently twisting and pushing up for volume.

·         Gently finger tease to give hair a slightly fluffy, fuzzy finish.

FINISH:  Spray hair with Nexxus Maxxium Superior Hold Finishing Mist to ensure the style stays put all night.
