Styling Steps

Backdown
1 . Style Hair Down at the Back Using Gel-wax

Apply some gel-wax to your fingertips then pull through the ends of your hair in a downward motion to achieve a semi-wet, textured result.

Sidesbehindear
2 . Style Sides Behind Ear Using Gel-wax

Apply a small amount of gel-wax to your fingertips, then place it at the roots above your ear and drag it through as you pull your hair behind your ear. This will create a fresh, semi-wet result.

Tease
3 . Tease Hair

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.

Toplifting
4 . Lift Roots Using Gel-wax

Apply some gel-wax to your fingertips and then rub it gently into your roots while lifting your strands. Using gel-wax in this manner will add shine and texture.

Topsmoothback
5 . Smooth the Top Back Using Gel-wax

Apply gel-wax to the palms of your hands and then starting at the front hairline, drag your hands back over your head, smoothing as you go. For better gel-wax distribution, we recommend using a fine tooth comb to work the gel-wax through your hair.

Lacquerfinishing
6 . Apply Lacquer

Lacquer is great for strong hold. A small amount is all that is required to finish and should be applied from an arms length distance to the entire style.
