1. Begin by applying Fekkai Advanced Full Blown Volume™ Styling Whip to towel-dried hair, working the product in from roots to ends.

2. Dry hair using Fekkai Classic Brush to 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.
