Final Look - Hollywood Wave - Copy

STEP 1: Working on freshly washed hair, apply a volume boosting mousse (we love label.m Creative Volume Mousse) to add lift and shine as you blow dry.

STEP 2: Set your hair into a strong side parting (HINT: line it up with the inside corner of your eyebrow for a flattering shape).

STEP 3: Take a diagonal section of hair from the front and wrap around a curling wand (try the ghd Curve Classic Wave Wand for best results) directing the wand towards your face. Hold for 6-8 seconds then release and clip the curl to the head to help it set.

STEP 4: Continue to curl 3-4 inch sections of hair, working from the front to the back.

STEP 5: Once all of the curls have been pinned, leave to cool before releasing them. Gently brush through with a paddle brush to create a soft wave. Add a high shine finish with a mist of gloss spray such as Designline Shine Mist High Gloss Spray.
