Create Your Own Tousled Waves

1

Prep hair for styling

Apply a heat protectant like Fructis Flat Iron Perfector.

2

Wrap your first section of hair around barrel

Start as high or as low on your hair as you'd like. Hold it on the hair for 3-5 seconds, working from back to front, doing one half of your head at a time. For a beachier look, alternate wrapping sections towards and away from your face.

3

Give curls a soft shake and comb through with fingers

For some great lift at the root, use a small teasing comb which will help you target carefully.

4

Lock in the look

Finish with a generous spritz of Fructis Style Volume Anti-Humidity Hairspray.
