1

Prep your hair.

Let’s begin!

Start with hair that is 80% dry. Then spritz your strands with the VO5 Heat Protect Spray to safeguard them from the hairdryer.

Follow up with TONI&GUY 3D Volumiser Spray to help build body and fullness, with a touch of shine.

2

Section your strands.

Now divide your hair into 4 sections.

Create your first section at the back of your head from ear to ear; second, a horseshoe shape section from the front of the hairline to the crown; third and fourth, will be the remaining side sections.

3

Blowdry back section.

Starting at the back section, use a vent brush in your dominant hand and a hairdryer in the other to brush the hair tightly against the scalp in one direction.

Repeat on the same section but in the opposite direction.

4

Blowdry side sections.

Repeat this blow-drying action on the side sections, finishing off the ends by wrapping the ends around a round brush with the hairdryer held above.

5

Blowdry your crown

Move onto your crown area and blowdry by wrapping the hair around a round brush, rotating as you go.

6

Blowdry front section.

Now for your final section, blowdry the front section or any bangs you have, pulling the hair flat across your forehead.

7

Set in place.

For the finishing touch, set your look in place with the TRESemmé Firm Hold Hairspray.

Providing you with an all-day natural hold and 24-hour frizz control, you can rest assured that your fab pixie cut will stay put!
