HOW-TO STEPS

    To achieve this curly, wavy, sexy look:
    Step 1. Apply David Babaii for WildAid Amplifying Whipped Mousse from roots to ends. This gives just the right amount of volume and hold to her strawberry blonde hair.
    Step 2. Rough dry tresses by using your hands, moving the hair in various directions.
    Step 3. Once dry, section hair into three different parts: top, sides and back leaving the nape area free. (This is one of David’s most important styling tips, since you need to have constant control over the hair at all times.)
    Step 4. To create these gorgeous wavy curls, use a 1½-inch Curling Iron. Babaii likes FHI Heat’s Ceramic Curling Iron.
    Step 5. To style, take small “V” shaped strands and wrap them around the inside of the barrel, allowing each curl to fall naturally.
    Step 6. Run fingers up through select strands to achieve added volume. For additional lift at the scalp area, you can spray Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier on finger tips and apply to the root area by roughly massaging into the area. 
    Step 7. Finish with a light styling spray.

    To achieve this 1940s Marilyn Monroe look, you need to create the illusion of a chin length “bob.”
    Step 1. Apply a polishing serum to damp hair then dry completely.
    Step 2. Divide tresses into three sections: top with a side part, sides and back leaving the nape area free.
    Step 3. To create large barrel sized curls, take alternating “V” shaped partings to avoid any part lines from showing through and use a 1½-inch curling iron throughout entire head.
    Step 4. Pin the side and back curls into various sized looped curls to create the illusion of a short “bob.”
    Step 5. On the top, gently brush hair to one side to form soft waves. 
    Step 6. For added glamour, brush back one side and secure with a decorative hair pin. 
    Step 7. Finish with a light styling spray.
