HOW-TO STEPS

  • close formula
    1

    Hair should be shampooed and dried first.

  • close formula
    2

    Mix a thickening lotion and a styling crème together in a bowl and apply to the roots with a brush, like a root tint application.

  • close formula
    3

    Dry all the roots upwards with a comb to create structure and volume at the roots only.

  • close formula
    4

    Make up the same product mixture and this time, using your hands, apply to the mid-lengths and ends.  Start approximately two inches from the roots.

  • close formula
    5

    Now begin to dry by starting at the nape, using only your fingers.

  • close formula
    6

    Drag your fingers through the mid-lengths and ends (to straighten but not smooth the hair) until each section is completely dry.

  • close formula
    7

    Continue this technique throughout, working in an upward motion.

  • close formula
    8

    Keep reapplying the mixture to the mid-lengths and ends until the hair feels almost synthetic, creating structure, volume and texture.

  • close formula
    9

    Working from the underneath, start to back-brush the mid-lengths in an upward, flicking motion to create a fluffy texture.

  • close formula
    10

    Continue back-brushing throughout, creating a light fluffy texture.

  • close formula
    11

    Smooth over the top sections very lightly with a soft brush.

  • close formula
    12

    Gently brush back the sides.

  • close formula
    13

    Secure the sides with a pin.

  • close formula
    14

    Dress the remainder of the hair back into a loose ponytail.

  • close formula
    15

    Release the pins and dress out for a loose, bohemian-chic look.

  • close formula
    16

    Let hair down and style loosely for a classy casual look.
