Model and Hair Artist: Olivia Culpo, Miss Universe 2012
Olivia Culpo, Miss Universe 2012, is always on the go and in front of a camera. To be “picture perfect” in a snap, she often relies on her favorite CHI hair tools. Follow the tips below to recreate these quick, event-worthy curls with the CHI ARC, available June 2013.
Before: Prep hair with CHI Magnified Volume Shampoo and Conditioner.12
Divide hair in 3 sections for easy styling. The first section is the top of the head from the hair line to the top crown and is clipped up out of the way. The second section is from the temples to the center back and is clipped in the center back. Leave the remaining section down to begin styling.3
Take a 1 inch vertical section and clip the ends into CHI ARC’s barrel clip to secure in place. Press the directional button to wind hair up the CHI ARC and hold in place to heat. Release the clip and repeat throughout the section until completely curled. TIP: To return the CHI ARC barrel to its original position, press the RESET button before curling another section.4
Release the second section from temples to the back and curl 1 inch sections in the opposite direction using the desired directional arrow button.5
Release the top section and, working in horizontal 1 inch sections, curl the hair back toward the crown until the section is completed. TIP: Set the curls in the top sections with clips after cooling and allow to cool for 10 seconds to add volume.6
After all curls are complete and cooled, spray CHI Infra Texture Hairspray for shiny, moveable hold and comb through with fingers to separate curls.
