The event was the launch and learn about Paul Mitchell's new Neuro Intelligent Styling tools. The Neuro®, precision instruments include the Neuro® Dry, Neuro® Smooth, Neuro® Unclipped Rod, Neuro® Unclipped 1.25, Neuro® Unclipped 0.75 and Neuro® Curl. I personally fell in love with the Neuro Curl which creates waves and curls. It has a premium titanium barrel to ensure fast, precisely regulated heat in seconds and the clip grips hair for better style control and a smooth finish. I like my curling wand but this makes curls and waves so much quicker and easier!
The talented staff at Hely Hair Studio were on hand to create a variety of looks using the new Neuro tools as well as new Paul Mitchell express dry products. I opted to try a braided or plaited look because it is something I've never been able to execute myself.
First up I tried a flirty fishtail braid with a plaited crown. It's hard to tell but there is a teeny, tiny braid wrapped around the braid bun! This looked so amazing from the back and is definitely something I could never do myself but I was a bit self-conscious about how it looked from the front. Basically I was all face and I have A LOT of face!
So next we tried braiding just the front from my part to behind my ear and then I played with the Neuro Curl to create some waterfall curls at the end. We also kept that teeny, tiny braid I mentioned before (see it on the left?). I loved this look and it would be perfect for a day at the beach as your hair would be out of your face but not scraped back into a ponytail.
I got some great tips from the team at Hely Hair Studio on how to recreate this look myself but I've not given it a try yet. When you braid or plait your hair like this yourself you need to work upwards rather than downwards--otherwise you end up with what I have had in the past which is just a random braid hanging in your face!
