Stylists were treated by the much-anticipated annual Formal Styling class with our Master Stylist Alley Biehl. Her experience with event styling reaches back into her middle school years, styling hair for her family and friends for school proms and formals. Alley’s class energizes stylists for the upcoming formal season by demonstrating skills behind red-carpet looks seen at awards shows such as the Oscars and Grammys. Alley demonstrated a reinvention of the “whimsical bride,” instead of a textured look she created a smooth modern bun, accented with a beautiful beaded head piece.
Alley’s class featured two newly released Oribe styling products, Swept Up Volume Powder Spray and Free Styler Working Hair Spray. Swept Up is a volumizing powder that provides lift with an easy pump-spray application, and Free Styler was its perfect pair, providing equal parts flexibility and hold.
Every year Alley’s [Formal Styling] class ignites my inspiration for formal hair and gives me the confidence and hones my skills to create a variety of looks for proms and weddings.” – Stylist Isabella Vazquez
