Get the PPQ look with Hessions.

After an action packed week of fashion, hair and make-up trends we got a great insight what’s going to be hot next season! Here is a chance to be a step ahead of the game and cause serious hair envy with this how to recreate the look from the PPQ show at the weekend.

Volume certainly adds to this look so before styling, prepare hair by using a volumising shampoo such as Kerastase Bain Volume Active (€21.00) and blast dry! Prep your hair then it with L’Oreal Tecni Art Pli Thermo-Fixing Spray (€15.40). This will help to set your hair when it’s dry and you are putting your heated rollers! Hession Hairdressing are big fans of the O Rollers (€185), a big purchase initially but they heat in an astounding 4 seconds and are a super investment giving hair fantastic hold and definition. If you are looking for a cheaper quick fix they also recommend using the Sleep In Velcro Rollers (€22) and leave them in for an hour or two!

When you take out the rollers spray the hair lightly with L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray (€14), the legendary Hairspray of choice for Red carpet events and cover shoots. Section the front of your hair from ear to ear using a comb to divide the hair, and put the back section of the hair into a mid-way ponytail. Backcomb the ponytail, then wrap loosely and mould into a beehive shape and secure with hairpins.
Lightly backcomb the front section from the roots and section diagonally, wrapping the hair around the bun on opposite sides to create texture. Finally spray all over with a touch of hairspray to finish and you are good to go!

Top Tip: Avoid heavy conditioners and styling products that will just weigh you hair down.
