HOW-TO STEPS

1

First, set the hair with hot rollers using KMS California FREESHAPE 2-in-1 Styling + Finishing Spray to create a softer curl.

2

Next, secure two ponytails, one at the crown and one at the nape.

3

Use padding made from Yaki Hair and a hair net (molded into a crescent shape), pin under each of the ponytails. Then, backcomb the ponytail sections to create volume and start smoothing with the tip of a styling brush. 

4

Next, form the smoothed hair onto the padding and secure.

5

Tuck the ends of pony underneath the crown, then tuck the ends of second pony into the nape. 

6

Apply KMS California HAIRPLAY Gel Wax onto the front veil section for a different polished texture.

7

Finally, drape the veil section in front, around the back center and secure. Then mold the front pieces for a lived-in look.

8

To change the look and add texture to the above style, pull some of the hair in the back and massage the ends.
