What you need for it is a hairdryer with a nozzle used for directing airflow properly so that your hair doesn’t come out frizzy and you don’t burn your hair. You will also need a round brush (not so big, not so small), a detangling brush, a comb to part the hair, alligator clips for sectioning, duckbill clips, any volumizing foam, and a heat protectant.

How To:

  1. Brush your hair.
  2.  Use volumizing foam on it if you like volume, Volumizing foam works by swelling your hair fibers and add soft flexible hold to your roots whenever you apply this product. apply the foam onto the comb and apply it from roots to the tip of hair by combing and sectioning, I usually use more on the front and the crown area of the head. The more you use, the more holds you get, the less you use the less hold you get so whatever you’re into, use that much product onto your hair.
  3. Whenever you’re using a heat styling tool, you must use a heat shield, a heat protectant so that you protect your hair from damage. shake the bottle and 4-5 puffs all around the head and comb it again.
  4. While your hair is wet, if you have some curly hair in the front of your hairline it will be important that right now while it’s wet, get those curls out of your hairline. Set the blow-dryer on a lower setting, push the hair back from the face and go in on the root and get them really nice and straight dry, it’ll be almost an inch up from the root. When your hair is wet it’s easier to remove curl, release wave.
  5. Now when your hair is 50% dry, let’s section the hair properly. One circle cut out in the middle (crown area), and small 8 sections surrounding that one middle circle section. Use alligator to section them off.
  6. Make sure to use a round brush on every section of hair and you direct the hair up and never down. Smooth out the end first and then rolls the brush up from under and then release it already.
  7. Curl that strand or section of hair up and put a duckbill clip on it to set that wave in.
  8.  Now that when you have the entire sides done, you have that back middle circle, open it up, cut that one section into 4 sections, and do the same that you’ve done before.
  9. PLEASE make sure your blow-dryer is always behind the brush, always following your brush for smoothness. If your blow-dry leaves your brush, you’re going to get so much frizz.
  10. While you Pin all the babies up and done with all the portions, give your head 15-20 mins before taking all duckbill clips out.
  11. The bouncy beautiful volume will stay, it’s one of the most important blow-dries you’ve to learn by yourself. It’s just classic and stable.
