Celebrity hairstylist, Castillo styled Real Housewife and entertainment queen, Erika Jayne for the Billboard Music Awards. Creating “sexy slept-in waves,” in a half-up/half-down ‘do, Castillo was inspired by legendary beauties. “We wanted to go for a sexy Brigitte Bardot vibe on Erika,” he shared.
     On clean hair, Castillo started by making loose waves in Jayne’s hair using the Cricket Co.’s Ultra Smooth Curling Iron.  Once the curls cooled down he took the Cricket Co.’s Centrix Ceramic Styling Iron and ran it through some of the curls from mid shaft to end to loosen the waves and add some major “sexy slept in waves.”  Next he combed through with a wide-tooth Ultra Smooth Coconut Oil infused comb to create volume and avoid frizz before using a teasing brush to back-comb the entire head at the root. Parting the hair in half (by taking a large section starting from the back of one ear across the top of the head ending on the opposite ear) with a tail comb, Castillo created a small ponytail on the top of Jayne’s head using an elastic.  Finally, he detailed the look by pulling out some face-framing pieces and sealing ends with a bit of styling wax.

In addition to The Academy Awards’ winning-picture mishap, people are still talking about Halle Berry’s unprecedented Oscar hairstyle!  Speaking with Vogue, the actress shared, “I have always marched to the beat to my own drum, and I think this red-carpet look encapsulates that,” adding, “With this look, I celebrate my natural hair by allowing it to be wild and free.” We know that wild and free doesn’t come easily, so we turned to celebrity stylist, Castillo, to share his tips from creating this glamorous and whimsical look.   He began with the help of styling products from MOP Salon Haircare.  After shampooing and conditioning Berry’s hair, he added the line’s new Lemongrass Volume Whip and Lemongrass Lift to the roots for lift and added volume.  Then applied some of the line’s curl-defining cream from the mid-shaft through the ends.  Next, he diffused sections of the hair, and when the hair was completely dry, he used the used the T3 Whirl Trio Curling Iron to create different sized curls to define the look.  Finally, he sealed the entire look in with the MOP’s c-system hairspray.
