Vivian Tam SPR 09: Backstage Hair Tips from Kevin Mancuso

Last night, lead stylist Nexxus Creative Director Kevin Mancuso created a soft, yet modern updo for the Vivienne Tam fashion show. He took a cue from Tam's flirty and sophisticated flowing, floral-inspired dresses and tailored structured pieces.

Mancuso shared with us how to get his runway look:

Step 1: Apply a root lifting product, like Nexxus Root Exxtend, at roots for lift and all over locks to help enhance texture and pliability. Distribute a medium-hold mousse, such as Nexxus Mousse Plus, throughout hair to help maintain the structure of the style.Separate hair into medium size sections and blow-dry with a round brush.

Step 2:Part top section of hair down the middle.

Gather hair into a mid-placed ponytail, in line with your ears. Loop ponytail into a twisted bun and secure with bobby pins. Pull a few strands from the end of the ponytail from the bun for a wispy texture.

Step 3:Finish look with a light-hold hairspray, like Nexxus 360° Volume.
