How to get this look

Share Print

  • Step 1: Prep the hair.  On towel-dried hair, apply some Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse from root to tip.  TOP TIP: to get even distribution of the mousse apply it to a vent brush and then comb it through the hair, rather than applying the mousse directly to the hair.  Then apply some Luxurious Volume Thickening Blow Dry Lotion to your front hairline roots.  Dry the hair with a hairdryer, creating root lift around the front hairline with the help of a vent brush to lift the roots away from the scalp as you’re drying each section, until it’s 80% dry.
  • Step 2: Style you hair.  Take a section about 6cm wide and 2cm deep from the centre-front hairline.  Pull the hair up so it is neat and taught away from the scalp.  Starting at the tips wind the section all the way down around a round bristle brush.  TOP TIP: invest in a brush with natural bristles.  Using your John Frieda hairdryer with the nozzle on blast the hair which is wrapped around the round brush to fully dry it off.  Then, using your fingers as a barrel, wrap the section round your fingers and secure in a roll on top of your head with a sectioning clip (this is called a pin curl).  Repeat this process, section by section, so that your full crown and hairline area is complete.  Let the pin curls set for about 30 minutes.
  • Step 3: Add the finishing touches.  Where there are no pin curls at the back of the head, pull the hair back into a low ponytail slightly to one side of the nape of the neck.  Instead of securing with a band begin to twist the ponytail tightly so that it follows along the hairline at the back of your head from one ear to the other. Then twist the hair back on itself and tuck the ends up inside the twist and secure with a grip.  Remove the clips from the pin curls and gently pin the loose tendrils of hair into the twist at the back of your head.  Secure the look with a spritz of Luxurious Volume Thickening Hairspray.
