On Sunday afternoon, celebrity hairstylists Harry Josh (who counts the Victoria’s Secret Angels as his clients) and Jen Atkin (the stylist responsible for the Kardashian sisters’ waves) teamed up for a special tutorial at Mane University, a hair education academy and subset of Atkin’s Mane Addicts website. During the class, Josh broke down his signature look. Here, the five hair rules he lives by.
Salt = Volume
Apply beach spray at the crown, and mousse throughout the hair for the perfect styling base.
Keep your round brush and curling iron smaller than a 1.25 inch diameter for better control. (Spoiler: Josh is launching a collection of his own this fall.)
Hot Tools Should Be Hot
Hair is most malleable when warm. Let the thermal protectants in the products work.
Clips Are King
Set hair with clips to lock in the style as it cools. (Josh's collection also includes clips!)
Find Your Finish
Castor oil gives shine and knocks out frizz, while hairspray or dry shampoo will take out any excess gloss.
