    From a center part, take a vertical section from the apex to above the ear. Fishtail braid the section, then repeat on the opposite side of the head.

     

    Pro Tip: Braid all the way down to the tip, secure with an elastic and then start pancaking for a fast, easy and clean braid.

    Working in horizontal sections at the crown, spray the hair with ColorProof SeaSugar™ Salt-Free Beach Spray and lightly tease. When desired volume is reached, smooth hair over the teased crown.

     

    Pro Tip: The SeaSugar™ Salt-Free Beach Spray uses sugar cane for texture instead of salt, which can draw moisture out of the hair and contribute to stripped haircolor.
