“Smooth the natural texture out of the hair to just get a nice, clean consistency,” says Brad. “I’ve just used a little bit of root volume spray, a mousse, for a little bit of grip into the hair and then we’re just smoothing it out. The trick to a smooth shiny blowdry is to direct the nozzle of the hair dryer down the shaft of the hair with a big round barrel brush.”
“Use either a straightening iron like I did here, twisting the hair back on itself,” says Brad. “or I’ve recently discovered Ego Professional Twist – a new tool to the market that has a series of bobbles along the length of the wand creating waves but even heat distribution.
Take sections about 4 cm x 4cm and from the mid length wrap the hair away from the face run the iron or tong up and down the hair like a bungee jump this gives hair “movement” be sure over curl the ends , its OK if they are left straight.
Do this pattern around the head till all the hair is styled. I like L’Oreal Professional plus a nifty setting lotion that locks in the movement while protecting from heat.
Important to let the hair cool down completely this gives you a longer lasting curl/movement
Next you want to loosen the curls. “I like to use a large tooth comb or fingers to rake out the set and break the hair up giving a relaxed finish.” Says Brad.
