Cover Girl: Shay Mitchell

Learn to recreate Shay Mitchell's stunning cover look, which debuted on Seventeen Magazine

As Emily Fields on the popular television show Pretty Little Liars, Shay Mitchell has been known to create some sizzling on-screen drama.

On the current cover of Seventeen's Latin version, Mitchell really turns up the heat. This pretty little A-lister offers hot looks for Fall along with some key accessory trends. Stylist Craig Gangi goes behind-the-scenes to offer a sneak peek on how to create the fun, flirty cover look he created for the sizzling magazine shoot.

"I wanted to create a sexy, voluminous and wavy style that was not so polished, but still a very controlled-texturized style," says Craig, who started the look by wetting down Mitchell's hair, then applying Joico Power Whip - Whipped Foam. This provided the extra body needed for styling.

After blowing the hair dry, Craig applied Joico's Texture Boost-Dry Spray Wax in order to create texture and hold a loose wave.

"Since we ended the shoot on the roof, I was fighting the wind, so I used Joico's Power Spray- Finishing Spray to keep the fly-aways under control. Since it has a layerable effect with increasing hold without flakes or residue, this product was ideal for keeping the style in place while still allowing it to be worked as needed through the shoot even with the wind.

On the day of shoot the weather was hot and humid as well, so Craig needed something for more than just holding the overall style." Enter Joico's Humidity Blocker. "Shay has thick, coarse hair that tends to frizz easily, and you can't get away with frizz on any shoot," concludes Craig.

Finally, he loosely curled Mitchell's locks with an iron and then lightly sprayed Humidity Blocker to keep the moisture in the air at bay. The result: Frizz free locks.
