Celebrity Hollywood hairstylist, Colleen LaBaff who served as the Assistant Head of Department along with two other top hairstylists, Frida Aradottir and Jas Kimble, helped create the overall looks for the sultry movie, BURLESQUE. According to Colleen, the inspiration behind the hairstyles included Period, Modern Day, and Edgy Looks. Together, with the movie’s director, head hair department and costume designer, along with archives of photos and research, they strategized and created looks for Christina Aguilera, Julianne Hough, Kristen Bell, and all of the dancers that performed with Christina and all of the cast members.
Christina Aguilera as Ali
Hairstylist Frida Aradottir achieved one of Christina’s many glamorous looks by spraying White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Hold Styling Spray onto damp hair and drying tresses with the IT&LY HAIRFASHION Italian Racing Red Ionic Blow Dryer (as seen in the movie at each dancer’s dressing table). Once hair was dry, she took small sections, utilizing a small barrel curling iron to curl the entire head. After these tight curls were created, she brushed it all out and massaged a small amount of IT&LY HAIRFASHION’S Pure Water Drops into the curls for a softer look full of volume. To finish, she misted with White Sands Infinity Hairspray for hold.
Tyne Stecklein as Jesse
To achieve this sexy blonde’s look, Colleen LaBaff created the foundation for long lasting curls using White Sands Liquid Texture Firm Hold Styling Spray evenly dispersing throughout the hair. After blow drying this product in with the IT&LY HAIRFASHION Blow Dryer, she applied IT&LY’s Pure Water Drops to add additional shine. Using small and medium sized curling irons, Colleen alternated both the direction and the size of the curls. To hold in place, she used IT&LY HAIRFASHION Pure Definition Hair Spray to provide movement and hold.
Chelsea Traille as Coco
For one of Chelsea’s looks, Jas Kimble curled the front with a curling iron and then braided the hair up in the back followed by attaching a fall. With working with hair pieces and wigs, the hair department pre-set most of these pieces so they were fresh and ready to go. This fall was one of the wigs that had already been wet set, so after she attached it, Jas brushed it out to complete the style. Next, she created finger waves in the front section of the hair using her fingers and long clips to hold them in. When finished, Jas entwined them into the fall. For hold, she used IT&LY HAIRFASHION Pure Definition Hair Spray.
For a second look, she applied several products from Kimble Hair Care Systems to Chelsea’s hair and then pulled her tresses up into a high, sleek ponytail. She then attached a faux ponytail (which was sewn on because it was so long) and used White Sands Infinity Hair Spray and the IT&LY HAIRFASHION Blow Dryer as part of the attachment process.
For those who want their hair to be a comfortable and manageable length, mid length hairstyles can be perfect. With hair that’s of a medium length, many women find they’re able to enjoy the best of both worlds, as a lot of the most popular styles for long and short hair translate well to medium length hair. Mid length hairstyles are extremely versatile, and anyone can easily go from formal to very trendy with only a few minor adjustments.
Mid length hair extends from beyond the end of the nose to just beneath the chin, and anything beyond that’s considered long. Medium length hair does not come down to shoulder level, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be tied back. Many of the most elegant ponytail styles are available to women with mid length hair.
Mid length hairstyles may or may not feature a fringe, and one of the beauties of having mid length hair is that you’re not tied down to one particular feel.
Some good mid length hairstyles include having a layered cut that features a split fringe covering part of the face. This is an excellent style if you want to look professional at the office but glamorous at night.
A bob is a great style to have if you want something practical that shows off your facial features well. Seemingly never out of style, mid length hair offers the perfect platform for a neat and sophisticated bob.
Mid length hair is versatile and has potential. Almost any look you’re trying to achieve can be attained through styling with mid length hair.
