This is a very versatile hairstyle that works on all hair lengths except short hair.You'll need about forty-five minutes to recreate the look and the recommended products are:
To create this look:
If your hair has a slight natural curl or wave,apply Curlisto Structura Lotion to wet hair in sections.If you have medium-to-fine straight hair,skip ahead to step six.
Gently scrunch your hair with hands,tilt your head forward and blow-dry softly with a diffuser until hair is almost completely dry.
Bring your head back and,parting at the center,gently brush all the hair back with a teasing brush.Pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure with a clear rubber band (do not pull too tight).
Divide the ponytail into three sections and backcomb each section with one or two long strokes toward the nape using a teasing brush.Gently smooth the sections together.
Twist into a bun and secure with bobby pins.Gently smooth and loosen hairs with the teasing brush and a touch of Curlisto Shaping Spray.
If you have medium-to-fine straight hair (no waves or curls),set with large rollers.Set the rollers away from the face in large sections for 20 minutes.
Remove rollers and tilt your head forward.Brush the set through to eliminate roller marks.
With your head tilted forward,section and spray roots with Curlisto Shaping Spray.Tilt head back and follow the instructions above from step three.
Easy and gorgeous in under an hour?Nowthat'sour kind of hairstyle.
