Vidal Sassoon x Chictopia: "Show Your Genius" - Look 2: Sweet Glam

Second up to this Vidal Sassoon x Chictopia series, 
"Sweet Glam, Night Out" Look
White Agaci polka dot dress, Red c/o Hobo International 'Zara' clutch, Tan c/o Steve Madden MARLENEE heels.

Here, I used these Vidal Sassoon products:
I wanted to have more fun with this look and was kind of inspired by (everyone's new fave movie) The Great Gatsby along with beachy hippie hair ;).  And having short hair, I love curling it and having it reminiscent of those flapper girl 1920's hair styles.  The hippie vibe came from creating the side braids.
In other words, Hippie meets Gatsby.

First, I used the Vidal Sassoon MOISTURE One Minute Mask, after applying to damp hair and combing through in the shower, I rinsed it thoroughly.  After, I applied the Vidal Sassoon REPAIR Heat & Protect Shine Spray all over the ends before applying any heat to my hair.  Right after blow drying, my hair felt so silky and soft, I could run my hand through it without any tangles.  I then started to curl my hair alternating between inward and outward curls for volume.  After each curl, I also applied the Vidal Sassoon EXTRA FIRM HOLD Hairspray which held the curls tightly without any frizzy hair as well.  Next the curls helped to create the braids and hold them together too -- ended it off with tying them to the back with a little clip.

After styling my hair with curls all over, I decided to style it with a sweet party night out outfit.  This white polka dot dress from Agaci was perfect for the hair style I created.  Both the polka dot dress and curly hair were perfect for a sweet yet glam night look.
