Products Used



Start by applying Wella Professionals EIMI Extra Volume Mousse to wet hair from the midlengths to the ends. Then, using the ghd air® Hairdryer, tip the head upside down and dry the hair completely. “Drying upside down helps create tons of volume and encourages natural texture and waves,” shares Christian.


Then, use a pintail comb and add a sharp middle part.


Once the hair is completely dry, start at the nape and spray Wella Professionals EIMI Stay Firm Hairspray section by section. Then, brush through the hair.



Next, wrap the hair around the ghd curve® soft curl iron, hold for 10 sections and release, leaving each section alone to cool.


Once the hair is cooled, spray Wella Professionals EIMI Dry Me throughout the entire head to add texture and fullness to the waves. Then, gently brush out the waves.


Then, start at the nape and backcomb the waves section by section to create softness and volume. 


Spray each section with EIMI Stay Firm Hairspray for long-lasting results, then use your fingers to shake out any remaining waves to create loose, soft texture.
