2. Dry hair using Fekkai Classic Brushto create loose, tousled waves for the textured effect.

3. Apply Fekkai Full Blown Volume™ Lifting Hairspray to roots to prep the foundation.

4. At the nape of the neck, spritz hair with Fekkai Coiff™ Océanique Tousled Wave Spray.

5. Using a 1 ½ inch curling iron wrap 2-3 inch sections of hair around the barrel of the iron, leaving ends out. Continue to repeat this action throughout, bearing in mind the way the root falls.

6. Take a hairdryer with nozzle attachment and blast the root of the hair for hold and volume.

7. Run fingers through the hair to break-up the waves.

8. Clamp the ends with a flat iron to flatten the curl, creating an imperfect, sleeker wave.

9. Finish the style with Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray to give a modern, edgy look.
