Struggled without your Revenge fix over the holiday weekend? Perhaps the secrets to achieving Emily Thorne’s (or should we say Amanda Clarke’s?) signature hairstyle will make up for it as you wait for the next episode to air this Sunday. You’re welcome.
When giving actress Emily VanCamp the proper Thorne treatment, long-lasting texture is a must. To prep for this, the show’s hair department head, Lori Rozman, applies White Sands Liquid Texture Firm Hold Styling Spray ($20; whitesandsproducts.com) to the star’s freshly washed strands, which she says creates just enough movement while protecting the hair from heat damage.
“I gently lift and move her hair in various directions with my hands, followed by a medium round brush to create additional volume and bend to the ends,” Rozman tells InStyle of her blow-drying technique. Then, it’s time for those luscious waves.
“Once dry, I section her hair into three different parts: top, sides, and back, leaving the nape area free,” she says. “This is vital because you need to have constant control over the hair at all times so you do not miss any areas.” Next, Rozman grabs a 1 1/4-inch curling iron (she loves the Dura Ceramic Spring Curling Iron by Chi, $144, loxabeauty.com) to create natural looking curls. Her tip? “Take uneven shaped partings and sections, then wrap the sections around the inside of the barrel and hold for 10 seconds,” she says. “Clip each curl and allow them to cool.” She later adds hairspray to help the style last through long days on set.
"To style, remove all the clips and rub a small amount of Chi Silk Infusion ($26; ulta.com) on your hands and finger tips and gently run your fingers through the curls to loosen,” she says. “For silky loose curls, take random sections and run your fingers through to separate and define.”
