HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Separate a triangular section from temple to temple, braid it, secure ends using an elastic band and pin flat with bobby pins. Then use wig clips to make the hair flatter.

  • 2

    Separate an inch and a half U shape section behind the first section and clip it out of the way. (Make sure your parting is clean as this is where Quikkies will be applied later).

  • 3

    Pre-cut Quikkies 13-13** in half to create thinner pieces of color.

  • 4

    Apply Quikkies 65/13* about 2 inches from the hair line along the parting.

  • 5

    Place the lighter pre-cut Quikkies (13-13**) on either side of the darker Quikkies (65-13*). Continue alternating around the perimeter of the head.

  • 6

    Pre-cut Quikkies 65-13* for the second layer of application.

  • 7

    Drop down section that has been pinned up and then repeat steps 3-5 by using opposing colors placing darker (65-13) Quikkies on either side of lighter (6-65*). Alternate placement of Quikkies to give more dimension to the color.

  • 8

    Apply top hair piece (08-19**) starting from front following the hair line and secure into a braid. Brush hair down to keep it smooth.

  • 9

    Pre-section a V section of the bangs to get ready for cutting. For a blunt fringe cut from edge of brow to brow. Cut off to desired fringe length.

  • 10

    Finished Look

  • 11

    Use a razor to cut Quikkies and to blend with model’s hair.

  • 12

    Final look after blending.

  • 13

    In vertical sections use a medium hold, brushable working hair spray and conical iron, take 1 inch sections and wrap hair around the iron and then secure into place to cool down with a sectioning clip.

  • 14

    Take another verticle section and repeat.

  • 15

    Pin all curls up while still warm.

  • 16

    Brush hair out with Hairdreams brush.

  • 17

    Finish with a light hold hairspray.
