Rick rack flexi rod set
This style was inspired by The BIG show Kevin Murphy held in New York a couple years ago. They did a set with large hair pins, and very small sections of hair,and then flat ironed each pin and left to cool. so I've tried a few different techniques. First I was on a hunt to find these large hair pins. i was having a lot of trouble finding them, so i thought I'll just buy some wire from AC Moore and create my own. I tried the wire technique in a photo shoot we did with Ryan Scott. It was an interesting out come. Picture posted below. then we tried using the flexi rods which are in this video. This technique is very fun and there are endless possibilities. I choose to set the hair after I had blown out the hair which gave it a softer look. I applied Kevin Murphy's smooth again to damp towel dried hair. Then I blew dry her hair with my Ergo paddle brush. I sectioned the hair into 4 quadrants and then broke those sections in half horizontally which is shown in the video above. I use 8 small flexi rods, spraying each section with Kevin Murphys Hair resort spray and wrapped the hair in a figure eight motion. after the hair had been completely set we put her under the dryer for 10 minutes. let cool for 5. Lastly we removed the fexi rods and reveled this beautiful triangular wave. Awesome!!!
