Backstage Hair Secrets & Styling Tips
from the Hairstylist on CW’s Jane the Virgin
Michelle Rene Elam, the department head of hair on CW’s Jane the Virgin, shares her TV styling secrets and tips for creating the hair seen throughout the show’s 4th season.
Season 4 has been filled with stories that are keeping us on our toes. Jane is finally moving on after the loss of Michael and has found new and old love. We began the season with her fresh new sporty fun style that she is now growing out. She has found herself reaching for a little of her old self for comfort from all the changes.
I keep her hair in good shiny condition by using White Sands Liquid Texture Spray (available in Medium & Firm) as a heat protectant and the strong hold, Firm version for her growing waves. I finish her off with White Sands Orchids Oil or an argan oil. When she imagines herself as one of her storybook characters, wild versions of her appear. From pink/blonde hair to high long ponytails, I keep it in place with I.C.O.N. Done Finishing Spray.
Keeping up with Jane is Petra, whom once the villain of the show has tried to change her ways and be a smart business woman. Her golden locks have softened but as the story turns she will soon sport a very chic look. I double up products using a shine protectant spray over the top of White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Thermal Spray to seal her curl in best. That product cocktail allows her hair to flow all day without need for hairspray.
