First, section the hair by taking small pieces to ensure all strands will be perfectly straightened. Flat iron and spray each section with White Sands Infinity Hairspray. After all hair is bone straight, then comb and add oil to tame flyaways.

    •    Tancho Stick
    •    Oil
First, section the hair in halves by using butterfly clips to secure. Then, spray each curl with White Sands Liquid Texture Soft Hold Thermal Styling Spray. Section hair once again but this time horizontally, curling hair back and away from the face. Clip the curls so that it cools and sets with direction. Then, finger threw the style for body and movement. Use an oil to tame unwanted flyaways and the Tancho Stick for smooth edges.

"For this variation on Tia's curly hair above, the same products are needed. But, this style is approached in a different way," reveals Nikki Wright. "For this particular look, all curls are done on base (not curled back as on previous looks)."

For this bed head look, take the iron and wrap around the outside of the barrel to create waves using White Sands Infinity Hairspray. This gives texture, direction, and movement. Before hair is cooled, break waves up so that they are not uniform. Then, shake out!

First, smooth all the hair straight with a flat iron making sure to use White Sands Infinity Hairspray on each section. Then bring all hair to one side. To create the fish tail braid, take small pieces of hair rotating each piece from one area to another. Then, secure with a hair tie at the end. Take a few thin pieces of hair out around the face for softness.
