The hair at the Alice and Olivia Fall 2020 Collection at New York Fashion Week was all about embellishments with tiny crystal rhinestones glued to the hair to created a jewelled effect. Celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan added the hair gems to the relaxed waves to create a 70's bohemian rock chic look.
Crystal Hair Gems Through Waves
Here is a close up of the crystal embellishment in the hair by Justine Marjan from her Instagram account.
To create the textured wave Justine used the 's' wave technique with a flat iron. Each hair jewel was individually attached to the hairstyle with hair glue on tweezers for extra support and finished with TRESemmé Micro Mist Spray.
Here are some other recent creations by Justine Marjan using pearls and crystals to inspire you.
