This quick tip is dedicated to all you gorgeous gals with “almost there but not quite” waves. You will need: Setting clips, tissue paper (I didn’t want to put tissue paper in the photo because it would have blocked too much of the pattern, but you can put a tiny piece of tissue under each clip to avoid creases!), setting spray, and light serum.
- Air dry your hair as you normally would. Try not to brush your hair after you get out of the shower!
- Once it’s 85% dry, lightly mist the top layer with your setting spray.
- Use your tissue paper and clips to set the waves in place. Try to match the pattern of your own natural waves below. It shouldn’t take you more than 5 minutes to get these in place!
- Let it sit for about 20 minutes while you get dressed/do your makeup. If you need to, use your blowdryer on low and give it a little heat help. Make sure you use a nozzle and that your dryer is pointed down toward the floor to avoid frizz.
- Once you remove the clips, add a little bit of a light serum to your ends and a quick veil of light hold hairspray.
If your hair is super-straight on top, this might not work for you but it’s worth a shot! You may find that your top layer just needed a little more support!

Joey Joy knows that art is in his blood. Growing up in Collingswood as the son of a hairdresser and a musician, a career focusing on creativity was his destiny. Now, as the Creative Director for Rizzieri Aveda School, after working with the Rizzieri organization since 1995, he still loves the salon atmosphere.
A position as the Creative Director can be mentally challenging. Joey says, because your talking all day long. From giving students advice to working with the instructors, there really isn’t down time. Getting home and taking the time to “chill” is really important so that he can continue to give it his all each and every day, Joey says.
When students and or clients love how much you put into helping them love school or their hair, it becomes all worth it. In fact, Joey realized his influence when he received his first letter of thanks for being a student’s inspiration years ago. He continues to strive to inspire others to create beauty. Joey’s favorite part about his position is his co-workers, “They are a great group of people, and we are really lucky to be able to have fun at work.”
Joey would tell potential students that are thinking about beginning a career in beauty and wellness that they should take advantage of all of the information that the teachers have to offer. This is the beginning of a great career! Joey currently is married to a hairdresser and is a Dad to three awesome (and adorable) kids.

Obsessed with this side-heavy look- and as you can see below it’s all over the red carpet. It’s kind of got this sort of 90′s feel to it which I’ve really been digging. The weight of the hair feels very a-symmetric and it takes a whole 15 min to create this look. Here’s how it’s done:
- Find your super-deep part. Try lining it up with the very outside of your brow first. If that feels like it’s just too much, go a little closer in and line up with the arch of your brow.This could potentially feel a little uncomfortable at first if you’re not used parting so far over. If you really hate having that deep side part or if your hair just won’t cooperate for some reason, try doing what I did on Lucy Hale below– see how I went on a diagonal? It starts a little closer to the center and then diagonally goes into a heavier part. This way you get all the weight of the hair on one side but it doesn’t feel overly swooped. Don’t be afraid to take a blowdryer to it to get it to behave!
- Use the finer side of a comb + some strong holding hairspray to make the side tight as you see in photo 2. Don’t over spray, you just want the hair close the head and the fly-aways to stay down. If you really wanted to go for a sleek side, you could gel it and give it that “shaved side” appearance which feels equally edgy + girly!
- Now split the hair diagonally from the back of the part to the opposite corner of your neck. Start the braid behind your ear and go down and around as you see in photo 3. Use a tiny clear elastic to secure the braid on the opposite side of your neck. This elastic will be hidden underneath the other side with all the hair.
- That’s it! Now you’re free to create whatever texture you want on the heavier side– smooth waves, messy waves, curl, straight, anything you like. Personally I like the messy waves with a little volume (like you see in the very top photo) but you really can do this using any natural texture.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, barbers, cosmetologists and personal appearance workers held 821,900 jobs back in 2008, and job opportunities in the beauty field are expected to grow by 20% through 2018. This job growth is much faster than the rate of many other occupations.
Why the sudden growth for THIS industry?
On the whole, the increase of cosmetology jobs is simply coming from the population. The population is increasing at a fast rate, and a larger population results in a higher demand for hair care services. There’s also a big trend in hair care maintenance, wherein people are much more willing to spend money on hair coloring and hair treatments. A growing emphasis on overall health and wellnesshas also led to a huge jump in demand for skin care specialists, estheticians, and full-service salons and spas.
Which segments are expecting to increase the most?
The good news is that most segments of the cosmetology industry are expected to see growth. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states these beauty areas are projected to experience the following amounts of growth.

Holiday Hair Treatments At Home
The mashed potatoes may be gone, but chances are you’ve got enough Thanksgiving leftovers to last for days. And while scraping the bowl might not be great for your waist line, it’s surprisingly good for your hair. Celebrity colorist Kyle White (who dyes the strands of Mariah Carey and Jennifer Love Hewitt) shared his favorite holiday hair recipes.
Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A and potassium, so it soothes the scalp and promotes healthy hair growth. To make a pumpkin hair mask, blend two cups of chopped and cooked pumpkin, one tablespoon of coconut oil, one tablespoon of honey, and one tablespoon of plain yogurt. Apply the mixture to damp hair and let it soak for 15 minutes. Rinse and shampoo for smoother, shinier strands.
Apple Cider Deep Cleanser
All that holiday styling leads to buildup and, eventually, dullness. Remove residue by rinsing hair with apple cider vinegar. It returns the hair to its natural acidity, smooths the cuticle, and even strips excess oil from the scalp.
If your red hair needs a boost—and your colorist is on vacation—try a cranberry juice toner. After washing and conditioning hair, tilt your head upside down and pour a half a cup of cranberry juice onto your head. Twist hair up into a bun and blow dry hair on the lowest heat setting. Then, rinse with warm water. The pigments in the juice will leave a temporary red tint to strands without damaging them, says White.
This boozy treatment goes straight to your head. Comb a glass of champagne through damp hair and rinse. The champagne not only boosts highlights but the carbonation plumps strands and promotes shine. Bottoms up!

Wake Up to Waves
Try Gibson’s technique for shoulder-length hair and skip the curling iron in the morning.
1. Apply a light mousse from roots to ends to help hair hold its shape as it dries.
2. From hairline to nape, divide your hair down the middle with a comb, separating it into two equal sections.
3. Braid each side from the middle down. Starting any higher will create crimps near your roots.
4. Secure the end of each braid with a metal-free elastic.
5. Pull out the elastics or pins in the morning and unwind your hair. For a beachy effect, mist a salt spray all over your hair and scrunch with your hands.
