Cocktailing 101: Everything You Need To Know

Mixologist: Meagan Gallman / Joico Advisor

Words of Wisdom: “Every stylist has their favorite product cocktail combinations when it comes to creating the most perfect style for their client’s hair type. Of course, that means understanding the purpose of your product, what it’s actually made for, and whether it’s going to compliment your client’s hair type or work against it.”

“Volume: Straight Up”

Recipe: Apply 1-2 pumps of JoiFull Volumizing Styler to towel-dried hair. This gives volume and protection from heat during your blowout. Follow with Iron Clad Thermal Protectant Spray before using a hot iron of any kind. Then, add Humidity Blocker Finishing Spray; a low-hold finishing spray that’s just powerful enough to keep the frizz to a minimum after your hair has been perfectly styled (a must-have for our ladies in the South).

“Volume: With a Shot of Shine”

Recipe: Cocktail K-PAK Color Therapy Luster Lock Multi-Perfector Daily Shine & Protect Spray, and Power Whip Whipped Foam– they work beautifully together. The Luster Lock Multi-Perfector Daily Shine & Protect Spray is extremely light and can be applied throughout damp hair, as can Power Whip Whipped Foam.

“Soft Drink”

Recipe: For voluminous hair that’s extremely soft and healthy after a blowout, cocktail a sparing amount of Defy Damage Protective Shield with JoiWhip Design Foam for a side of volume. They work beautifully together.
