Description

The back and sides of this curly do are tapered into the head with jagged cut layers cut up to the top to give this style maximum height and shape. This is easy to re-create on naturally curly locks and will need a little product for hold and shine.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Placeholder articles

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Flip Head and Use a Diffuser and Fingers

Placeholder articles

Tip your head upside down and move the diffuser up to the ends, motioning the diffuser to the scalp in circular movements. Make sure the blow-dryer speed is on low and try not to completely dry the hair off. Leaving a little bit of moisture will allow the hair to dry naturally.

3. Piece the Ends Using Gel-wax

Placeholder articles

Apply a small amount of gel-wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

4. Tease Hair

Placeholder articles

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.

5. Apply Hairspray

Placeholder articles

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
