Despite what “they” may want you to think, you don’t need 6 or 7 different products to get your unique hair style. Cocktail Ahnesti’s styling lineup in 4 different ways to create 4 different looks… and more!
OK curls! You need some weight don’t you? But not soooo much your curls disappear! Take our Utiliti Styling Lotion and put a macadamia-nut to nickel size amount in your hands (base this on hair length and thickness). Add 6-8 sprays of Eterniti Refresher Spray and mix together well, spreading the cocktail mixture on your fingers and palms. Distribute into hair that is wet or slightly towel dried, making sure the cocktail is being worked in everywhere. We advise starting mid-shaft and working towards ends, then finishing up with the root area last to ensure you don’t over apply at the scalp. Once the product is distributed, use your hands to scrunch up your curls and wake them up. Most curls don’t need blow drying but if you use a diffuser, now would be the time!
Touchable, defined curls without the hard, plastic texture! VIOLA!
To finish it off and get a little more definition, mix an equal amount of the same cocktail (but a smaller amount) in the palm of one hand, lightly coat fingertips of other hand with mixture and then twirl around curls to create definition.
To make the ultimate, natural version, of va-va-voom hair, use equal amounts of UTILITI Styling Lotion and AUTHORITY Whipped Paste in wet hair (start with a small amount and add more if needed). Mix them together (emulsify) in the palm of your hands so they well combined and then apply it evenly to wet towel dried hair from ends up to almost-scalp (no need for this to touch the scalp, the paste would be too heavy and weigh down the hair).
Blow dry with a flat bush, paddle brush or round brush—pulling up at the roots when blow drying. If your hair is short, simply use your fingers!
Fun trick: blow dry with your head upside-down, (just don’t tip over!) to create extra volume, maybe a little more than you want, and then tame it down after. We like to use the “cool shot” on the blow dryer to close down the cuticle and “set” the root area.
Whether you’re styling your short, sweet, pixie or your shagged, layered look — cocktailing ETERNITI Refresher Spray & AUTHORITI Whipped Paste will create extra texture & hold. Take a small amount of Whipped Paste and add a couple of sprays of Refresher Spray to your hands and emulsify them together. This cocktail can be applied to wet or dry hair – or both! Mess it up, play around, place the pieces where you want them and walk away! (Not recommended for longer hair types.)
Guys, don’t ignore the beard! Use whats left in your hands for some control and definition!
Great for long hair and blow outs! Get smooth, shiny locks by mixing up a nickel- sized amount of UTILITI Styling Lotion and a pea-sized amount of AUTHORITY Whipped Paste. Distribute into hair that is wet or slightly towel dried, making sure the cocktail is being worked in everywhere. We advise starting mid-shaft and working towards ends, then finishing up with the root area last to ensure you don’t over apply at the scalp.
Blow dry hair to about 80% dry. Starting with the underside of the hair, section off a 2 inch radius, clipping up the rest, and start blow drying with a flat bush, paddle brush or round brush—focusing the point of the dryer DOWN the length of the hair. As each section is finished, let down another 2 inch section and repeat. When all hair is dried, apply the “cool-shot” focusing the point of the dryer DOWN the length of the hair once again. Hair will be full of body, soft and smooth! Smooth any fly-aways and add a little more control with a whisper of Whipped Paste.
