Actress Reese Witherspoon took to the silver carpet with a modern deep side part full of movement and shine by celebrity hairstylist, Lona Vigi, using Virtue products.
“Reese’s dress has this very old Hollywood, almost Art Deco sense to it, with beautiful beading and lots of weight to the dress itself. Initially I was thinking to add more texture to the hair, but sometimes when the dress takes on a vibe from a different and distinct decade, it’s better to not lean into that era because it can come across as costume-ie. So, then we thought, well, what’s the opposite of that? To me, that was straight hair that has polish and movement. We went with a side part to give it more drama and red-carpet appeal,” says Vigi.
To get the look, Vigi advises to think about switching your part, “Switching your part around can create more of a difference than people realize! In fact, the longer we wear our same part, the more we wear the hair down in that area and cause breakage,” advised Vigi.
To start, wash and clean hair with Virtue Full Shampoo and Virtue Full Conditioner, applying conditioner only to lengths and ends. Once hair is clean and damp, work in Virtue Volumizing Mousse from roots to ends. It instantly thickens hair, adds body, bounce, and flexible hold for a long-lasting style.
Then using Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Hair Dryer, dry hair about 80 percent of the way, and then working in small sections using an Olivia Garden round ceramic brush, which picks up heat while you blow dry and makes adding body and movement to your hair a breeze. Move the brush and dryer constantly and alternate between flipping your hair under and over to get the most bounce. Use medium heat on your roots and finish with cool blast for a shine. Once hair is dry, go back over section by section with just one pass of Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion 1" Professional Flat Iron, leaving the hair ultra-smooth and glossy.
Set the look with Virtue Shaping Spray, a dynamic hairspray with the perfect balance of flexibility and strength.
