Volumizing Mousse

Flexible Hold Hairspray

Step 1 – Prep hair

You’ll want to start with hair that isn’t freshly washed. Preferably a day or so will have passed since the last wash. This will help the style hold better. When you do wash it, use Volumizing Mousse to add body and texture. On dry hair, spray Flexible Hold Hairspray for heat protection and a workable hold.

Step 2 – Add some loose curls

Using the Tony Odisho Infrared Curling Iron, create loose curls. They don’t have to be perfect since they’ll end up in an up-do later on. When you’re done curling, comb out hair.

Step 3 – Pull back section of hair

Separate hair, leaving two sections in front. Take the section of the hair in the back and center, and pull it into a loose ponytail. Hold in place with a small rubber band that matches the hair.
