Wash your hair.

Before creating your style, wash and condition your hair with the Suave Professionals Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Shampoo and Suave Professionals Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Conditioner. This system works to cleanse, condition and repair any visible damage.


Apply a volumizing mousse.

Apply a golf ball-sized amount of Nexxus New York Salon Care Styling Mousse Plus throughout your hair. This works to add body and lift to your hair before drying.


Blow-dry your hair.

Blow-dry your hair straight. Be sure to position the concentration nozzle downward during the process. This will help the hair cuticle lay flat and help prevent frizz while styling.


Divide hair and curl.

Divide your hair into sections, then curl each section with a large barrel curling iron.


Separate and fluff.

Run your fingers through your hair to separate and fluff your curls.


Set your style.

Lock in your hairstyle with TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray to give your curly hairstyle a strong hold and to prevent flyaways as well as frizz.


Add a festive touch!

It’s the holidays! Finish off your 2000s hairstyle with a fun and festive holiday hair accessory.
