1. The Original or the Wide Iron
2. Hair clips
3. Sectioning comb
5. Heat Protectant Spray
6. Dry Shampoo
7. Round Brush
8. Shine SprayAre you ready to give it a try? This is what you’ll need:
Begin by generously spraying hair all over with the Totally Protected Heat Defence Spray.
It’s easier to work in small sections, layer by layer; assuring each section is thoroughly straightened using the Original Iron or the Wide Iron if you have long or thick hair.
The trick to achieving volume is to lift hair up at the root, gliding down the hair shaft in a curve, slightly flicking in towards the face.
Work through each layer in the same way until the entire head has been done.
Be sure to spray each layer with Secretly Styled Firm Hold Hairspray.
At this point, the entire head should have a lot more volume and body.
Spritz some Rapidly Revived Dry Shampoo on the roots and massage in gently. This should boost texture and also help the backcombing hold.
Tease hair at the root with The Micro Round Brush to add a little height.
Tip your head upside down and gently shake so that all the section blend together.
Finish by spraying with hairspray to set and a little Gloriously Glossy Shine Spray for that extra, high shine gloss.
