    First, prepare hair with PureVolume Shampoo® and HairCondition® to increase fullness and protect colour vibrancy. Follow with EssentialRepair ColourMax and EssentialRepair InstantRepair for optimum colour retention and improved hair condition. Evenly distribute PureVolume Blow-dry Amplifier through hair to infuse body and flexible bounce. Apply RootLift directly to the root area and then blow-dry towards the crown using a round brush for maximum volume.

    Next, create a horseshoe parting from recession to recession. Next, create a vertical panel one and a half inches wide in the center back. Clip away top and side sections.

    Wrap the tail of the braid upwards around the center panel in a spiral formation. Secure with closed fasteners making sure that the braid lies flat against the head. The braid is the foundation to which the other sections will attach. It will not be visible in the finished look.
