Styling: Curly Faux Bob from UNITE

Clients will sparkle when you offer up this diamond-shaped silhouette, formed and boosted with large, firm curls. Vertical coils are created by feeding strands through a flat iron, and then separated with fingers to produce an explosion of texture. For optional drama, tuck lengths into the nape for a “faux bob” effect. Shimmer, shimmer!
