    Hi! Thank you for this tutorial. Was just wondering what the narrow black brush used to smooth out the hairspray, is?
    Thank you

      Hi Maggie! It’s a teasing brush. Should be pretty easy to find online, or your local beauty supply store will have one. —Team Rose Inc.

    Thank you for this! Biggest ongoing hair woe…getting the color right. Yours is gorgeous. What can I ask my my stylist to do in order to get something similar? xx

    • Rose Inc.

      Hi Jess! Thanks for the nice note. For a similar hair color, you could ask your stylist to ask for partial balayage highlights, with brighter pieces to surround your face. Rosie also uses Olaplex to keep her hair strong and smooth. Hope this helps! —Team Rose Inc.

    I feel like I’m going half…when i pull my hair up like this it has strans and gaps so i see white scalp streams making me look bald

      Diane, thanks for the note. If those gaps frustrate you, you could always try a temporary root cover-up to help fill in some of the space. You could also try a looser bun, which won’t tug on your hair. Best wishes to you! —Team Rose Inc.

    Hi Rosie. I love this video. You make an up do look so easy. I have really thick hair and I find after I dry it sometimes can be quite bristly looking. What’s the best products to use for a nice shine ? I also have really thick hair any tips on how to make it feel weightless. Xx

    Hi Rosie! I loved this video, thanks so much for sharing – I’m definitely going to try that Redken Spray!

    I have quite long, naturally curly hair but I have always found it sits flat on the top! I’d love to see a video on how to get volume at the roots, without it looking too teased/ i feel like i might iveruse product and then my roots look greasy!

    Thanks so much for sharing your videos I love your blog! X
