    The key to making this look perfect here is super smooth locks.

    Step 1. Begin by working a smoothing crème through the hair, like PureOlogy’s InstantRepair.  It will smooth down the cuticle and protect hair from day to day wear.

    Step 2. Apply a straightening serum on damp hair and blow dry using a paddle brush. PureOlogy SuperStraight® Relaxing Serum works great!

    Step 3. Prep locks with a heat styling protecting product like SuperSmooth™ Hot Iron Protection.  Flat iron the whole head until the hair is smooth and straight.

    Step 4. Complete the look with a couple drops of shine serum on the ends to give it a nice glass-like shine.

    For an easy upstyled look on longer hair, try a low back or side chignon with a modern twist!

    Step 1. Apply a glossing spray all over, brushing it to allow the hair’s texture to show.

    Step 2. Pull hair back into a low side or back ponytail.

    Step 3. Apply a small amount of NanoWorks® ShineLuxe through the ponytail and then loosely create a braid.  You can add more braids depending on the hair’s density.

    Step 4. Twist the braid(s) around the base of the ponytail in soft curl formation and secure with bobby pins. 

    Step 5. To complete the look, spray with a maximum hold hairspray.

    This look is classic but with a modern twist that makes it perfect for holiday merriment!

    Step 1. Apply a cocktail of PureOlogy NanoGlaze® and PureVolume® Blow Dry Amplifier to damp hair and blow dry with a medium-size round brush to create body and fullness.

    Step 2. Part the hair on whichever side you prefer then pick up triangular sections and mist with a spray gel.

    Step 3. Using a curling iron, mold the triangular sections into a pin-curl form, alternating each section in different directions working around the whole head.

    Step 4. Set using a blow dryer with a diffuser for 10-15 minutes, then switch to a cool setting for five minutes.

    Step 5. Mist with PureOlogy GlossingMist® and brush out waves for a classic peek-a-boo style finger wave.

    Step 6. Finish with a maximum hold hairspray and she’s good to go!  Try InChargePlus® from PureOlogy.
