Are you planning on going to this year’s Kentucky Derby on May 6th? If you are you want to be sure to look as Mint Julep/Southern belle cool as it gets. You do know that the race is almost as much about how well put-together people are as it is about the horses. And of course what and who’s hat (see video) you’re wearing. It really is all about coifs and chapeaus, gorgeous gentlemen and women’s attire and of course who wins the Triple Crown. Well Pureology’s artistic ambassador Ruth Roche and Pure Artist Sandra Joseph have shared a step-by-steps DI, using Pureology, to do at the Derby or just try at home.
Derby do bu Pure Artist Sandra Joseph
Ø On damp hair, mist Colour Fanatic multi-tasking hair beautifier from roots to ends and comb through to prime and protect the hair.
Ø To achieve the perfect blow dry with both shape and hold, emulsify a dime-size amount of Smooth Perfection Style Shaping Gel in palms and massage throughout hair. Blow dry with a medium round brush to create bend and shape.
Ø Once dry, emulsify Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher shine serum in palms and distribute evenly throughout hair for shine and hold.
Ø Take random sections of hair beginning at the mid-shaft and wrap around a large barrel iron on a diagonal. Smooth each section around your fingers after you release from the iron to create loose, natural-looking waves.
Ø Lightly mist Color Stylist Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for a flexible hold that will last you a full day at the races.

Hot Tip: If your hat is very detailed, consider keeping your hair minimal and chic so you don’t distract from the beauty of the hat.
Ø Apply Smooth Perfection Style + Care Infusion to damp hair and comb through.
Ø Blow dry the hair in sections using a paddle brush for a smooth, sleek finish.
Ø Create a clean center part and brush the hair back into a smooth ponytail at the nape.
Ø Twist the ponytail into a chignon and secure with a closed pin.
Ø Finish by spraying the hair with Colour Stylist Supreme Control Hairspray for extra hold and shine.
Hot Tip: Pull the hair back neatly, away from the face and dip the hat down on one side to showcase both the hair as well as the hat.
Ø Apply Colour Stylist Root Lift Spray Hair Mousse throughout the root area and blow dry the hair away from the face.
Ø Create barrel curls using a one inch iron, spraying each section as you go with Colour Stylist Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray.
Ø Brush hair away from the face and secure curls at the back of the head with closed pins.
Ø Spray hair with Colour Stylist Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for lasting hold.
