For our cover story, Simply Organic Education and Technical Director Rebecca Gregory and Creative Director Jennifer Andrews relied on styling products from Organic Way (OWAY), a line of biodynamic organic products from Bologna, Italy. Simply Organic is the exclusive distributor of the luxury line, which also includes an ammonia-free permanent hair color treatment called Hcolor based on biodynamic hibiscus, organic perilla, ethnical date and illipe butter. With its advanced formula and extremely rich pigments, Hcolor offers rich, intense results and multi-faceted reflections plus perfect coverage of gray hair. To style our cover girl, Gregory set the hair on the smallest iron in the CoCr8 set of irons with interchangeable heads—think of a pin curl Afro. Sculpting Mist allowed her to create a hard-hold set, while keeping the volume inside and around the root. Hair was heavily backcombed with a few bits and pieces allowed to escape around the face. The finishing touch: a little Glamshine Cloud Spray on the ends.


 
Flux Potion is a great alternative to mousse before blow-drying to create full, flexible styles like this. To seal split ends and give the hair intense shine, Andrews relied on Nurturing Drops, which are ultra-concentrated.
Sea Salt Spray is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want a structured blowout. Here, Andrews used it to give the hair some “grit” before crimping it all over. After the waves were brushed out, she pinned the hair back and used Sculpting Mist, which actually treats and moisturizes hair, to hold everything in place.
Looks like Andrews was channeling Sophia Loren here. All we can say is ciao bella. Key to this look was Glossy Nectar, which she worked through the hair from roots to ends—it’s not only infused with organic black quinoa, which is rich in phytoproteins, but also with biodynamic marrublum to reinforce the hair’s natural structure. A quick spritz of eco-friendly Sculpting Mist provided extra strong hold with no residue.
To produce maxed-out curl that looks healthy and hydrated, Andrews applied Glossy Nectar, which actually penetrates the cuticle to repair, strengthen and condition even the most damaged hair. Before using a double-barrel curling iron to set the hair in small curls, she applied Thermal Stress Protector, a medium-hold thermal protecting spray that guards against temperatures up to 437 degrees Fahrenheit. After finger combing out the curls, she applied Sculpting Mist to set the style without weighing it down.
To create these sexy, tousled waves, Gregory applied Flux Potion before blow-drying the hair. Sculpting Mist provided the support she needed to hold a set, which was executed with a medium-barrel curling iron. After using her fingers to “brush out” the curls, she applied Glamshine Cloud Spray, which adds lustrous shine to finished styles with a hint of all-natural essential oil fragrance.
