David Babaii known for achieving red carpet perfection, created “Texture Infusion” for Sandra Bullock’s 2011 Oscar look.
Start with a clean canvas by rinsing all the shampoo and conditioner from the hair.
After gently towel drying, David applied Couture Colour Pequi Oil Treatment (now available at Sephora.com) to the hair, using a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute the product. The Pequi Oil tames frizz, mends split ends while providing hair with incredible softness and shine.
Then, he dried her hair with a round brush for a smooth finish.
Once dry, David applied additional Pequi Oil and brushed her hair straight back.
With the IT&LY HAIRFASHION Digital Styling Iron, he took random half inch sections starting at the front and twisted the hair. Once the strand is twisted, take your flat iron and press down the entire length of the strand to set a wavy texture in. Allow each strand to cool and release itself naturally. David continued taking half inch sections throughout the front half of her head until he achieved enough texture.
When complete, additional Pequi Oil was added to his hands to finger comb the hair back into a ponytail above the nape area.
He then wrapped her hair around the band and secured with bobby pins allowing any loose hairs to fall naturally.
This will give you David’s version of “Texture Infusion” which is a combination of texture enhanced with Pequi Oil to achieve a brilliant shine.
