Takeaway Tips:

  • Braid as cleanly as possible and avoid overdirecting any hair into the braid. Follow the round of her head.
  • Annette reaches for her  Hot Tools® Professional CURLBAR™ Set because it’s super versatile, allowing her to achieve many looks, style and textures—plus, you can set a timer to vibrate when each curl is done, ensuring they are all perfect.
  • Use two different barrel sizes for more volume and body. In this technique, Annette used a smaller barrel in the back and switched to a larger barrel as she moved towards the face. “This creates a softer, airy look around her face and more voluminous look in the back.” The CURLBAR™ Set has four barrel sizes for max versatility.
