    A wavy, feminine long cut reminiscent of looks seen at the Louis Vuitton show; this look is a true classic with a simple and sexy appeal.

    Step 1: Apply Redken Thickening Lotion 06 Body Builder at root area.

    Step 2: Layer Redken Satinwear 02 Ultimate Blow-Dry Lotion and Redken Blown Away 09 Protective Blow-Dry Gel through the ends and blow-dry using a paddle brush.
     
    Step 3: Divide hair into 3 sections: 2 sides and the back. Place part where normally worn.

    Step 4: Starting at the nape, take a horizontal 2 inch section.  Spray Redken Fabricate 03 Heat-Active Texturizer and curl hair using a large curling iron. 

    Step 5: Once curled, pull out iron and clip hair into place. Work your way up the head in this manner.  If there is fringe, isolate and do not curl.

    Step 6: Once done, let set cool.  Spray with Redken Workforce 09 Flexible Volumizing Spray and remove clips.

    Step 7: Apply a small amount of Redken Outshine 01 Anti-Frizz Polishing Milk to hands and finger style.
