It’s not every day that you get you to sit down with a master of his trade, someone so good, so well received that his client list reads like a who’s who of A-listers.
But then some days you just get lucky, and today was one of those days. Joh Bailey was my lunch date (okay there were about 20 other people there) but I still got to grill him about all things volume as he championed the latest TRESemmé 24 Hour Body range.
Joh’s top tips for long-lasting volume: spray TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Sculpting Spray Gel ($7.95) into the roots of your hair, turn your head upside down and blast with a blow-dryer (don’t forget the nozzle) until it’s about 70% per cent dry.
Then using a radial brush, blow-dry sections of the hair starting at the roots. Insider tip: leave the hair wrapped around the brush for a minute or two after the dryer is switched off to help to set the curl. Keep reading . . .
Joh’s top tips for refreshing your blow-dry: tilt your head upside down and apply talcum powder to the roots, then brush through.
And a nice little snippet for you: Joh’s current obsession? His Italian greyhound, Valentino. Cute!
