Step One: Section out the tendrils around your face for softness and apply Pureology Weightless Volume Mousse for smoothness and control.

Step Two: Using your round brush, blow-dry the tendrils up and back to achieve perfectly styled, blown-out bangs.

Step Three: Pull out two additional sections of hair on either side of your face. Using your brush, pull back the remaining hair into a ponytail.
Hot Tip
: Spray some Pureology Texture Finishing Hairspray on your brush first to tame flyaways and add hold.

Step Four: Secure your ponytail with a clear elastic.

Step Five: Bring the additional sections of hair back on either side to camouflage the elastic. Apply more Pureology Texture Finishing Hairspray and some Pureology Mess It Up Texture Paste to hold and smooth.
Hot Tip: Use the back of your brush to smooth down flyaways.

Step Six: Twist your hair around and up. Once completely twisted from the base to the ends, apply more Pureology Texture Finishing Hairspray.

Step Seven: Twist the hair down towards the hidden ponytail, tucking in the end near the elastic. Once in place, apply your claw clip.

Step Eight: Use a little Pureology Mess It Up Texture Paste on any remaining flyaways to finish off your style!
