Women over 40 beauty, Skincare, Fashion, Fitness and Lifestyle

The fab over 40 Rachel Weisz (42) is in The Bourne Legacy film and graces the cover of Marie Claire UK September issue.  One thing you’ll notice on the cover besides her stunning eyes is her gorgeous hair. Her seriously gorgeous hair.  Ben Skervin used Oribe Hair Care products to give her the beautiful look and he shares with us how to get the look using only two simple products and four easy steps.

  1. Use Maximista Thickening Spray to blow dry the hair and achieve all over volume
  2. Use Dry Texturing Spray at the roots for added lift and hold.
  3. Use a 1″ curling iron to spiral curl 2″ square sections down the iron. Repeat until the whole head is curled.
  4. Once hair has cooled brush it out and add more Dry Texturing Spray to finish the look.

I personally own both of these products and will have to give it a try!  I only wish my hair looked that glamorous, but if I could at least get partially there, I’d be happy!
