HOW-TO STEPS

1

Starting on dry hair, apply Oribe Mystify Restyling Spraya thermal protectant and hydrating spray, to build a flexible foundation. Then, separate the hair into four sections—top fringe, back and two side sections from behind the ear to the hairline.

2

Starting with the face-framing pieces and taking 1-inch sections, quickly tap a flat iron through to heat up the hair and avoid a line of demarcation. Working section-by-section, create a slight bend at the mids, then flat iron straight through the ends. 

3

Repeat this pattern throughout both sides, then move to the fringe. Work in chevron sections to create movement and avoid a flat, blunt fringe line. 

4

Then, create a sleek texture through the front.

 

Pro Tip: After applying heat to the fringe, run a comb through the section, allowing it to cool before dropping the hair against your client’s forehead.

5

Move to the back section and use the flat iron to create a sleek and straight style. The sleekness in the fringe and back creates contrast against the textured bends throughout the side sections to add movement and shape. 

6

Then, finish with Oribe Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray through the ends for piecey definition.
