Transcript

My name is Jacqueline Bush and I'm an editorial in celebrity hairstyles. My clientele has included Faith Hill, Mark Ruffalo, Terrance Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jane Krakowski. I want to be able to show you that hair isn't as intimidating or as hard as you think it is and I want you be able to have fun with it and do what your vision is with your hair

So, I've just finished curling all Monica's hair and I've waited for it to cool. I put a little bit of hairspray on, just to get it to hold and as you see I didn't do too much because when you do this a lot of it is based on the technique of the curl and waiting for the curl to cool. If you pull it out, if you pull the curls out before their all the way cool, it's gonna drop and you're gonna lose the curl that you have. But these are already cool so we're gonna just take them out.

Now you might ask yourself why did I not do that with hot rollers? And my answer would be you can do this with hot rollers but I would only do a certain amount. Hot rollers give good volume, but I don't always love the curl I get from hot rollers, whereas with, when I use my irons I can curl each one in a unique way, I can vary the sizes, but I can also vary the shape of the curl. So now I'm gonna have Monica turn her head forward and I'm just gonna blow dry it out to shake it up a little bit.

I didn't shake it up too much, cos remember Selena tends to have a little bit more of a polished curl. If you notice right now what I'm doing is I'm just shaping it with my fingers. I don't need a brush at this point, cos I don't wanna lose too much of the curl. You have to remember, if you're wearing this style for every day, you wanna leave with your hair a little curlier than your end goal, because your curl's gonna naturally drop. So now we see how the front, er, her front bangs are going inward so I'm gonna take the iron, curl them a little out, we're gonna get a little lift at the crown, we're gonna tease the crown a little bit, smooth it out and then we'll be done.

Using my toothbrush, and taking my triangular section, and I'm just going underneath, teasing a little bit, just to give a little extra lift, smoothing it out on top. I'm gonna take my large iron and curl those pieces away from Monica's face. And we're goona take our Mason Pearson brush, which is a brush which polishes the hair and smooths it. We're gonna smooth that out. And say for example you have a curl that's going kind of wonky you don't like the direction its going, such as, you know, I don't really love the way this curl is going and because I haven't straightened it out too much I haven't lost the vent but I'm just gonna fix this little end it's looking weird to me. So, I'm gonna fix it the way I want it. That's a little bit better.

Now we're gonna take a wide tooth comb and I'm just gonna tease out underneath, taking a large section, the whole section really, just gonna tease it out a little and then I'm gonna comb on top just slightly, just very, very gently not a lot, teasing it and then smoothing it on top.

And then one last thing I wanna share with you guys in getting Selena Gomez's hair, I'm just sprayibng to put a little bit of hold, is part of that is based on the cut and the difference between Selena and Monica's hair, aside from the colour, is the length and the cut. Selena's hair, she's had varying lengths, but her cut is a little bit different than Monica's, so if there's a little bit variance in the style, can we do that?

When you're looking for these results at home, it's based on also what your cut is and the way your hair is. You have to remember Selena's hair may be different than your own. So what your going for is your version of Selena's, rather than trying to get the exact look because your cut might be different, your hair texture might be different. So the goal is to get it close enough. And that's how you get hair like Selena Gomez.
