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.
Using your blow-dryer, tilt your head forward and dry your hair using your fingers until your hair is completely dry. Remember, the messier, the better.
Apply gel to your fingertips, then grab a small section of hair and rub the gel into the roots before twisting and pulling your hair upwards. For longer lasting spikes, use a generous amount of strong hold gel.
