    Apply Sebastian Professional Thickefy Foam to damp hair; blend evenly throughout. Then blow hair out straight with a medium to large-sized round brush, spray hair with flexible hairspray for added texture; section hair and set with large velcro rollers.

    Thomas Dunkin suggests prepping hair with a weightless thickener, flexible hairspray and soft texturizer to create moldable texture for hold that lasts without a product-laden look.
    • Thickefy Foam: Weightless thickener for natural volume
    • Microweb Fiber: Elastic texturizer for malleable, touchable texture
    • Shine Define: The ultimate versatile hairspray

    Take out pins, apply Microweb Fiber to hair, focusing most of the distribution towards the top of the head for lift and malleable texture. Clip top half of hair aside.

    French braid bottom half of hair starting behind left ear. Pull down top half of hair and pin pieces into french braid updo for playful positioning. Finish look with Shine Define for shiny finish and lasting hold.
