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.
