We’re so used to seeing Sonja Tremont-Morgan with her signature long locks on The Real Housewives of New York, that we did a double take when she recently hit the red carpet in this short vintage bob.
…Want to know a secret? In the making of this cut, no hair was actually cut—it’s a wig! Celebrity stylist and owner of his namesake salon, Angelo David (angelodavid.com), created Sonja’s look using one of his own Angelo David Couture Wigs, made of 100% pure European Hair. Sonja’s Lorena Sarbu dress served as the inspiration for the Marilyn Monroe-esque style—not only did the look complement the form-fitting elegant piece, but switching to the much-shorter ‘do for the night was unexpected and delivered that shock factor that Angelo was after.
Here’s how he created Sonja’s faux, fabulous look: The wig was prepped for styling with Angelo David Premier Volume Spray and Angelo David Zero Frizz Control, then tousled dry with a diffuser attachment on the blow dryer. Next, natural waves were crisscrossed with a 1-inch curling iron. To keep her roots looking natural, the front hairline of the wig was subtly deepened to blend with Sonja’s own hairline. Once the wig was in place, Angelo finished off the look using a teasing comb and the Angelo David Couture travel-sized paddle brush.
