To get this half-up look, Leonardo used a variety of Davines products. First however, Leonardo took the front sections of the girl’s hair and pinned it half way back. Then for the back he sprayed the hair with Davines Defining Texturizer, Leonardo’s favorite product from Davines!, to enhance the texture. Next he applied Davines Defining Volume Mousse to create volume and add shine.

Once the products were applied, Leonardo dried the hair creating voluminous locks. With a one-inch curling iron, Leonardo took different sized strands of hair and curled them. To finish, he used the Davines Glam Power spray, a unique a versatile finishing spray used to set any style and provide a strong, long-lasting hold without stiffness.
