Festival Hairstyling with TIGI

by CurlStylist on Monday, March 18, 2013

Festival fashion and hairstyles are a growing trend, so we asked TIGI to show us how to create a festival hairstyle on Cristina’s Type 2C hair for SXSW 2013. Textured hair is actually ideal for the carefree, bohemian looks that are popular at music festivals, and waves and braids are top trends right now. With the popularity of tools like Pinterest hairstyle inspiration is easier than ever to curate, and waves and braids are some of the top trends right now.

The talented women of Bettie Bangs hair salon in North Austin styled the bands and musicians performing at the Nikon Warner Sound showcase, as well as some of the guests at the TIGI Dry Styling Bar. While the stylists worked their hair magic, musicians took the stage including Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Icona Pop, Tegan and Sara, and our personal hair crush, Lianne La Havas!

Stylist Tasha Grimsley used a couple different styles of braids on Cristina’s hair, including hairband braids. She created two small braids using sections of hair from her temple. Using strands from the two headband braids, Grimsley then created a short fishtail, and then ended in a regular 3-strand braid. She used bobby pins to fix any strands that may be sticking out, and to get them looking just right. But remember, the final look should not be too polished, it’s meant to be boho! To add extra curl Grimsley finished off with a curling wand to touch up any waves that are lacking body. This helps especially for clients with multiple curl patterns.

Business Building Techniques

Begin having frequent staff meetings and collaborate on business building techniques used by others that you work with. Every salon has success right inside. Get the top booker to explain how they do it. Pair the weakest with the strongest and let them work next to each other. They can learn from what they hear and see. Do the same with retail sales. Share the ways that the top stay on top.

With cross marketing other services, know who the salon leaders are and copy them. Your staff becomes a resource to each other and by sharing dialouge that works, we all win.
