HOW-TO STEPS

1

Starting on damp hair, apply Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Thick & Full Volume Mousse to the front hairline and roots—this will help push the hair away from the face. Then, comb back all of the hair for a messy, slicked-back look.

2

Then blow-dry the hair with a Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, using the diffuser attachment to enhance natural waves and add volume.

3

Once the hair is completely dry, apply extensions for a longer and more luxurious look.

4

Using a Paul Mitchell 1-inch Curling Iron, curl random pieces of hair in alternating directions for a natural, lived-in effect.

5

Then apply a smoothing oil and distribute evenly from mids to ends, adding definition to the waves.

6

Set the look by applying Paul Mitchell Stay Strong Finishing Spray to the sides and top hairline. Then, rake through the hair using your fingers.

 

Pro Tip: Andrew recommends combing with fingers instead of a brush to avoid making the hair too smooth.

7

Finish by applying TIGI®️ Bed Head Headrush all over.
