Major Lift


Major Lift

So she needs a little lift? No worries. This look can transform your thin and fine-strand girls into total knockouts! Major volume? Check. Major body? Of course. Major lift? You know it. Here’s how Living Proof Creative Director Michael Shaun Corby creates his big, signature style so you can recreate it in your salon!


Products Used


  • 1

    Start with clean, dry hair. Then mist with Living Proof Full Root Lift and blow-dry hair in sections, pinning each section as you go.

  • 2

    Let set and cool. Once cool, remove pins one section at a time and brush out. Tease at root area, mist Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray over the top side of hair and reset the section. Repeat for the whole head.

  • 3

    Once the whole head is set, curl 2-inch sections using a 1 ¼-inch iron over the teased section, starting at the front and close to the scalp (the section should stay in place without needing a clip).

  • 4

    Repeat throughout the whole head. After the hair has cooled, brush out each section and smooth using a finishing brush.

  • 5

    Spray Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast close to the scalp in an upward motion and smooth with a finishing brush (the more you brush the smoother it will get).

  • 6
