For this sleek outline with an internal tapestry of texture, Tracy started with clean dry hair then created a very elegant and offset asymmetry. Redken Real Control Thermal Resist Heat Mist was applied to the model’s straight, dry hair, which removed the frizz and added shine while imparting a slight tooth to work with later.
Next she took an extra-large curling iron (AKA bumper iron) and bent one-inch sections all over pinning each section up to cool. This process was done to add movement and shine.
After undoing the pins, Tracy brushed through the hair to initiate a smooth surface. Large panels of hair were directed back into a chignon off to one side and then more panels were inter-twinned, smoothed over and pinned into place.
