On the last episode of Afrobella Radio I interviewed stylist Marcia Hamilton, who was on the verge of releasing something big. But couldn’t quite talk about it yet.
Well now Willow Smith’s Whip My Hair video is out and the world is LOVING the song and Marcia’s crazy amazing hairstyles!
I just got the inside scoop on the products used to create the amazing styles, and some of them are products that have been used in my hair too!
For the super long braids dipped in paint in the beginning, Marcia used White Sands Orchids Oil on Willow’s hair to add shine and make braiding easy.
For the “Heart Hawk,” Marcia “wrapped the braids around a pre-made wire shaped heart and secured with lots of glue. To finish, she sprayed this funky one of a kind design with IT&LY HAIRFASHION’S Purity Design Pure Definition Hairspray.”
When she made the faux hawk, Marcia hand colored clip in hair extensions with bright colors using IT&LY’s Colorly Xtreme Colors, and for the “Cotton Candy Dream” hair (which Willow has described as her favorite!) Marcia used IT&LY HAIRFASHIONS Colorly Xtreme and Colorly Hair Color to the hairpieces, and held the shapes in place with White Sands Stuck Up Mega Hold Hairspray.
And there you have it. I’ve had IT&LY Hairfashion haircolor before you might remember, and the White Sands Orchids Oil smells like floral hair heaven – I featured it on BVHairTalk a while ago. If you’re looking for a product to add shine and gloss and make your hair smell like a field of awesomeness, check it out.
Do you LOVE Whip My Hair? What’s your favorite look? I love the heart hawk, so audacious! Can’t wait to see what Marcia does for Willow’s next video!
