    1. David started the style with clean hair. “I love working with a fresh, clean canvas,” he says.
    2. To blow-dry, he divided her hair into three sections: top, sides and back, leaving the nape area free.
    3. Taking small sections and starting at the nape, David used the nozzle attachment on his blow dryer and finished the drying process with a medium round brush to smooth hair straight.
    4. When he finished drying the entire head, he took ¾-inch sections and wrapped around the inside of a large barrel curling iron, holding for 10 seconds. He worked around the entire head in this manner.
    5. To finish, he sprayed with IT&LY Pure Definition Hair Spray for memory hold and UV protection.
