NYFW: Drybar X Pamella Roland

Hair by Alli Webb for Drybar

Pamella Roland Fall 2018 show, Drybar Lead Artist Alli Webb created a voluminous, romantic look using products from the brand's professional styling collection, including the NEW Drybar Southern Belle Collection.  

Inspiration: Pamella Roland’s new collection is made up of gorgeous, rich fabrics and colors, both chic and with a little edge. We wanted the hair to compliment the beauty of the collection with just the right amount of volume and waves. The hair is romantic and voluminous and very easy for woman to recreate.


     Start by washing hair with Drybar Southern Belle Shampoo & Conditioner
     Prep wet with Drybar Southern Belle Mousse and spray from midshaft to ends for all over body
     Next apply Drybar Southern Belle Root Lifter at the roots for 99% more volume
     Using the Drybar Buttercup and Drybar Full Pint Round Brush blow dry hair, back brushing for added volume. When hair is almost dry, create a deep side part
     Next take 1-2 inch sections of dry hair at the crown and roll in Drybar High Top Rollers to set the crown for max volume. Secure with pin
     Once the hair has cooled, spray Drybar Money Maker Hair Spray all over for flexible hold. Remove the rollers and toddle
     Next, take 1-inch sections of hair and use the Drybar 3-Day Bender to create soft, romantic waves throughout the mid shaft. Leave ends out.
     To add height and lift, tease the crown with the Drybar Texas Tease Teasing Brush
     Finish the style with Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 Texturizing Spray by flipping head over, spraying all over and lifting the head back up - this creates even more piecey volume!
     Accentuate the side part by tucking hair behind ear and spraying with Drybar Money Maker Hair Spray to keep in place
