Asymmetrical Glamor Wave: For this style, use protective thickening lotion and set and style spray and blowdry with a boar bristle round brush, creating smoothness and body.

Sleek & Straight: When going straight, generously apply shine luxe oil and blowdry with round brush till close to dry. Now switch to a straightening iron. Work from roots to ends, making hair strikingly sleek with scintillating shine.

Blowdry hair with hands, lifting off the roots for volume and scrunching for natural texture. Down the sides, make tight twists in hands. Blowdry them up and down with the nozzle pointing down. Mist with primp for hold, texture and grip. If wave doesn’t take, switch to an iron or wand.

Loose Braid in the Back: For braids, use refinish to create gritty texture with grip –– to hep the entwine stay together. Sweep hair to back and make a chunky two or three strand braid out of the bulk of your hair. Tie with elastic and mist with primp for hold.
