You work. You have a social life. You also have a dozen or so obligations that require your attention. That said, an hour or more fussing with your hair before heading to the office isn’t a reality for you. Luckily for you, dear reader, Kattia Solano, Founder & Master Stylist of New York City’s Butterfly Studio Salon is here to help. A working mom-to-be and busy businesswoman, Kattia has perfected the art of no less than ten minutes of prep time in the morning. That’s right, ten minutes. She’s a big fan of celeb stylist Oribe and his styling products and tells us that his sprays can be used daily. Learn the step-by-step and enjoy your free time!
Emily Duus is a financial services professional, dancer and like most New York City working girls, is busy. Her hair tends to grow out fast, is full-bodied and manageable but only to a point. Kattia gracefully shows us how Emily can go from home to office to after work soirees with the help of a few Oribe styling items.
Emily is typically due on Wall Street by 8am. Kattia suggest skipping the blow dry and setting the (dry) hair with Oribe’s Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse. It’s a well-balanced mousse that gives hair a clean and sustainable hold. One or two pumps and you’re set. Run the mousse through the hair then take a warm curling iron to it. A large enough barrel will be just right to grab the hair and create that “soft” curl.
Once curled, shake the hair out and spray Oribe’s Thick Dry Finishing Spray througout the hair. Pull back in a high bun, leaving a few wisps around the face and Emily is ready for the work day.
Emily has things to do and people to see. Thankfully, a few select Oribe items come in easy to carry travel sizes, so yes, she can leave a small bottle of her favorite spray in her desk.
Workday complete! Let the bun down. Flip hair over two-three times and give it a once over with Oribe’s Superfine Hairspray. Kattia suggests running hands through the hair to loosen it up even more and applying the spray both underneath and on top.
Emily is ready to begin her evening! Kattia loves Kevyn Aucoin Beauty and the deep pigments of the range, so she applied a bright shade to Emily’s lips, a dab of color on the cheekbones and et voila, she is ready to make the social rounds tonight.Back to Blog
