The gorgeous Maya Jama has taken presenting to a whole new level on this years Love Island, and I was lucky enough to style her hair for the opening of this years show.

For this look, I created a classic, voluminous, brushed out, Hollywood look to pair perfectly with her fresh white dress and ruby red lip. This is one of my favourite styles to create for Maya – it’s a show-stopping look which is sure to catch attention from many. Here’s how to recreate;

As filming is in Majorca, preparation is key to ensure the hair doesn’t drop and stays full of volume.
To begin, I prepped the hair using the Jay B Haircare Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner which includes Argan oil to help tame frizz, add shine and promote elasticity.

Next, I worked into the hair a professional volume mousse, distributing this throughout which helps the style last for longer and began blow drying the hair using a large barrel brush, focusing heat at the root of the hair to create volume. Top tip, lift the hair when applying heat as this helps encourage volume and lift!

Next, I added 20inch Beauty Works Clip-In Extension in the shade Ebony for extra thickness. I then sectioned the hair and used the Beauty Works Pro Tong to give the hair that extra volume. Wrapping the hair with the tong on a high heat and then turning the heat off to give the curls a chance to cool and set. I then further set the curls using large rollers making the curls tighter and promoting a long-lasting look. When removing the rollers, I finished be combing the curls to create the bouncy, effortless look while giving the hair a generous spritz of professional hair spray to hold her look in place while presenting.
