1. “Blow out your bangs off to the side, then load up your hair with tons of texture spray and scrunch it in. My favorite is Unite Beach Day Texturizing Spray.”

2. “Tie up your hair in a pony. Curl random pieces with a one-inch iron vertically throughout the pony.”

3. “Spray Oribe Thick Dry Finishing Spray all over for more texture.”

4. “Lastly, shake a little Unite Expanda Dust at the base if the pony to get that extra lift and bounce! And don’t forget, the dirtier the hair the better!”
