3 Ways to Prep the Hair Before STITCH


By Erin Noha

Want to know the best thing about STITCH? You don’t need anything to start. From long to short hair, grab your STITCH and a little inspiration and you’re good to go.

However, we all go through the dreaded sophomore slump sometimes. It’s the moment when your mind goes completely blank and void, unable to muster any more ounces of creativity or even just a “little inspiration.” If you’re shaking your head up and down screaming “YAASSS” to my last sentence, well, you should know there’s a way out.

When you’re stuck in a creative rut, try prepping the hair beforehand to dramatically change the look and feel of your style. The original philosophy remains—all you need is STITCH—but play around with these prep methods and you’ll be sure to have a whole new creation on your hands.

1. Mousse Gives Texture, Pomade Controls Frizz

Prep with pomade or mousse before STITCH for a gripper texture.
Mousse is a great way to build texture, while pomade works to control frizz and flyaways before you use the STITCH.

2. Microcrimp to Add Volume and Texture

Microcrimping magically turns fine hair into thick hair and gives you a lot more volume and texture to work with. Alternate throughout the hair with the Sam Villa 1-inch Texturizing Iron and a 1-inch flat iron to create a smooth look.

3. Curl for Interesting Dimension

Curling the hair makes for an interesting STITCH pattern. After a basketweave pattern is finished, pull the curled pieces out a little farther from the head. The curls should create a wave that even Daenerys Targaryen would envy.

Now that you have all the prep necessary, it's time to get to work! Purchase the STITCH on our site by logging in or registering. Stay updated on all Daniel's looks by adding him on Facebook
