1. Blowout Cheat For Natural Lift

For clients with finer hair that falls flat, we love this quickie from Christi Piontkowski (@knoxvillebridalhair)! To create natural lift around the face, section out the front section and prep the roots with Moroccanoil® Volumizing Mist for natural volume that won’t weigh hair down.  


Hit the front section with a blow-dryer in every direction, working side to side to work out the natural part. Finish with the cool shot, let it cool and unwind the round brush for the perfect natural swoop.

How-To Steps For Fast Waves

  • Formulate: Cocktail Moroccanoil® Hydrating Styling Cream + Moroccanoil® Treatment Light for moisture. Samantha prefers the light treatment on blondes because it won’t weigh the hair down or tint the color.


  • Curl Technique: Section the hair in a halo and prep with Moroccanoil® Dry Texture Spray. Starting at the top of the section, curl everything away from the face with a 1.25-inch curling iron.


  • Remember This: Leave the iron on the hair for 3 seconds. Then, tap the clamp to loosen as you slide it out—making sure you don’t unclamp the iron!


  • Curl Direction: Alternate the curl direction in the back. Once you reach the section in front of the ear, curl everything away from the face.


  • Finishing: Allow the curls to set. Rub Moroccanoil® Mending Infusion on your hands and rake through the curls with your fingers. Then, use a brush to pull the curls apart.


Pro Tip: How To Prep Waves

Styling starts at the shampoo bowl. That’s why @kelleyscanvas conditions with Moroccanoil® Extra Volume Conditioner to hydrate the hair without weighing it down. Check out the finished look below!


5. Short On Time? Here’s A Fast Cheat!

Don’t skip out on styling just because a client needs to get out of your chair FAST. For quick texture, Christi suggests letting the products do most of the work. Follow these three fast steps to get the job done!


  1. Quickly curl random sections in alternating directions with the Moroccanoil® Perfectly Polished Titanium Flat Iron. Save time by skipping sections and not clipping the hair up.
  2. Add grip and lift with Moroccanoil® Dry Texture Spray.
  3. Finish with Moroccanoil® Luminous Hairspray Strong. “This [hairspray] is no joke and where you spray, it will stay,” says Christi. Lift sections and spray underneath for maximum volume.
