Expert stylist, Vanessa Fernandez, from NYC’s Butterfly Studio Salon has these great tips to recreate this look by yourself.
All you need are the items you already have in your own home!
- blow dryer
- small/medium round bristle brush
- pin-curl clips
- styling cream with hold (example: Shu Uemura's Tsai Cream)
- holding spray (example: Shu Uemura's Sheer Lacquer)
- 1 1/2" curling iron for long lengths only
- Rubber cushioned brush (example: Mason Pearson brush)

Shampoo and Condition hair as you normally would. After towel drying the hair, apply the styling cream, beginning at the roots and making your way to the ends. For Cameron’s extra dramatic look, you may want to use a deep side part as opposed to a center part.

Begin by removing some of the excess water by blow drying sections at a time. When the hair is about 75% dry, take 1 ½” to 2” horizontal sections of the hair from the parted area and begin smoothing one section at a time with a round bristle brush. Be sure to use tension to lock in the curls.

When the hair is completely dry, take each section and roll them into pin curls and secure with your pin curl clip so the hair sets. Repeat all over the head and allow at least 5 minutes before removing the clips. Once the clips are removed, spray the entire head with a holding spray.

With your rubber cushioned brush, brush through the hair and mold the desired shape with your hands and fingers. For longer hair you may have to go back in after all this is done and curl vertical sections about 1 1/2" wide away from the face.

To ensure your hair remains glamorous all night long, reapply the holding spray to the finished look.
