• Work Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse througout wet hair to create texture and volume. Then, run fingers through hair for a rough dry.

• Around the front hair line and foreheard, use a round brush to blow dry sections straight to offer softness around the face.

• Once hair is dry, wrap one-inch sections of hair down the barrel of a curling iron in a spiral, holding for only 4-5 seconds each, creating slight waves.

• After you've worked through your entire head with waves, allow hair to cool.

• Mist texturizing spray into hair roots to give a beachy, undone texture.

• Brush strands out and set hair using Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray to hold waves in place.
