To start, Knight prepped Coolidge’s wet hair with this mousse. The formula is lightweight and provides flexible hold and body. He applied it directly to a brush and brushed it through his hair for “perfectly even distribution.” Take it from us; don’t sleep on the mousse if you’re looking to create a voluminous hairstyle. It’s so helpful, especially for those of us with thin hair.
Here’s the brush Knight used to evenly distribute the mousse through Coolidge’s hair. He said “the two-tiered teeth gently detangle hair while evenly sucking up suds.”
Once he made sure the product was evenly dispersed, he picked up his hair dryer. Using medium heat, he dried Coolidge’s hair while using a round brush to accentuate the volume.
Before applying heat directly to her hair with a curling iron, Knight sprayed this hairspray through each section for two reasons. The first was heat protection. (It protects hair up to 410ºF.) The second was hold without stiffness. (Remember that a Brigitte Bardot look is all about volume and movement.)
From there, Knight moved on to curling her hair. “I took a 1.5-inch curling iron, pulled out two-inch sections, and curled around the barrel,” he says. “I curled all the hair from the top of her ears towards her face, and all the hair above away from her face. Doing this is flattering because it gives the shape a voluminous kick.”
Next, it was time to tease Coolidge’s hair. “Once the hair was curled, I used a tail comb to tease the hair at the crown as big as possible,” Knight explains. “It’s important that the hair can stand up if you want it to withstand brushing.”
Once done, he applied this volume and texture hybrid spray to all of her lengths. This added even more volume and body to Coolidge’s hair. The bigger the better.
Once the volume and texture spray hybrid was applied, he went ahead and smoothed the top layers of Coolidge’s hair with this brush so that it looked voluminous yet seamless.
“We added a black headband to the front of the hair for a touch of that ’60s Bardot vibe,” Knight explains. “You can also add a ribbon or a big barrette, as you wish!” All in all, it’s not too difficult a red carpet style to recreate on your own.
Don’t forget to spray hairspray. Knight says the finishing touch was a “generous spritz” of this hairspray to hold the style all night long. It is suitable for all hair types and provides firm hold without stiffness.
