HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Starting at the root, take narrow sections and run the flat iron through to create a smooth result.

  • 2

    Use neat sections and always keep the flat iron moving to prevent marks in the hair.

  • 3

    Take smaller sections around the face to ensure you flat iron through all baby hairs.

  • 4

    Once the hair is completely smooth, brush through the crown section, then clip away. This will leave you with two sections down on the sides of the head.

  • 5

    On both sides, create a five-strand braid (or whatever braid you are most comfortable with).

  • 6

    After both braids are complete, backcomb the entire crown section using big brushstrokes.

  • 7

    Lightly smooth over the backcombed surface and sculpt the top into a faux hawk shape. Use texture spray throughout to create volume and separation on smooth, straight hair.

  • 8
