MTV’s “Finding Carter” has kept viewers on the edge of their seats for two seasons now. Fans of the show know better than to even begin to speculate about where the stories of the show’s characters will ultimately end up as drama, plot twists, secrets, and lies that can tear relationships apart and crumble a family’s foundation only continue to come out.
If you’ve never seen the show before, it is a family drama that centers on Carter, a teenage girl who thinks she has the perfect life until one night after a police bust at a high school party she is told that the woman who she believes to be her biological mother actually abducted her as a toddler.
If you’ve ever watched “Finding Carter” and wondered how to get the shiny, seemingly effortless hair of Carter Stevens that seems to magically stay in place all on its own, we’ve got some tips to share with you.
Celebrity hairstylist and hair department head of “Finding Carter,” Richard Boggs, is sharing his tips for styling the show’s lead actress Kathryn Prescott (Carter Stevens).
- Start out by cleansing and treating the hair with RBpro Essentials Moisture Shampoo ($17) and Moisture Conditioner ($17). This duo is sulfate- and paraben-free. Their powerful anti-aging and collagen-building properties act as a barrier to seal the hair cuticle and protect from fading and damage. This is a great way to maintain and keep reds like this bright for filming.
- When we are on set, I am blow drying every day and then restyling the hair can cause stress, breakage, and fly-aways. I make sure to reach for RBPro Essentials Everyday Miracle Repair Treatment ($17) when hair is damp and apply it just before I begin heat styling. It is a must for maintaining the integrity and overall health of the hair. The treatment is weightless, which is important when using it on fine hair like Ms. Prescott’s.
- Since “Finding Carter” is shot in hot Atlanta’s humidity, it’s important to blow dry hair in stages. Section the hair off into four main parts, then thoroughly blow dry root-to-end. This will ensure great long-lasting and smooth volume. I always use RBpro Essentials Le Deux Styling Crème ($17). No flat iron or curling iron needed. It’s a blow-n-go!
- To finish the style, a shot of White Sands Infinity Finishing Spray ($22) at the root area will always insure fullness. Finishing off a Hollywood style with White Sands is a guarantee your glamour work will endure the long day of shooting! This spray just holds the style no matter what the weather or shooting conditions are like.
