Now that your hair is completely cool, gently comb through the curls with a wide-tooth comb to loosen them up and create a more wavy look.


STEP 5: Section & secure

Use your comb to section a piece of hair from your middle path, down your ear to the nape of your neck — make sure that this section is separated from the other hair. Repeat this process on either side of your head. Once done, take a small clear elastic band and secure those two pieces of hair together at the back of your head.

For an ultra-sleek look, secure your hair with the TRESemmé Hairspray one last time. Spray the two front pieces of hair to keep them sleek and in place.


STEP 6: Neaten up
