    “The trick to achieving this look is to spray the hairspray as you blow dry the hair. The force of the dryer pushes the product through the hair and gives a soft, matte hold that lasts,” says Martino.

    Step 2: Apply Keratin Complex Vita Volume Boosting Foam to damp hair.
    Step 3: Layer with Keratin Complex  Flex Flow Finishing Hairspray and proceed with styling.
